About the Artwork, Artist’s note:

We are an East Bay Artist’s group with multi-cultural backgrounds that influence our painting subjects and styles. From Pablo Villicana-Lara’s stunning Native American dancers, Howard Mackey’s blues musicians, Sue Matthews’ intricate flower designs, Laurie Rothman’s nature paintings, Jan Matsuoka’s touching figures, Bob Davidson’s “fractured landscapes” and Joan Gombos’ sailing on the bay works, we present a diverse array of artistic interests.

Most of us specialize in watercolor painting with a few works presented in other media. We have been together for years, advising each other on improving our work. Many of us are award winning artists and Pablo Villacana-Lara is a popular painting and drawing teacher at Merritt College in Oakland. This is our first show as a group.
