FALLBROOK – Returning to California’s Fallbrook Art Center for the 24th year is “Reflections of Nature,” an annual showcase of wildlife art and landscapes depicting the wonderful world of the wild and reminding people of the importance of preserving its beauty.
Nature’s diversity is evident in the art presented by professional artists working in oil, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, pastels, scratchboard, photography and bronze in a wide variety of styles. Because “Reflections of Nature” is condensed into a single weekend, all of the artists will be at the gallery for the duration of the show selling original work, prints, notecards and more.
This popular show, founded by award-winning artist and nature conservationist Gamini Ratnavira, is for one weekend only. The opening reception is Friday, May 5, from 6-8 p.m. Admission to the opening is $10 and is free to Fallbrook Arts members. The show continues May 6 – 7, Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Show admission is $6 and is free to Fallbrook Arts members.
This year’s show features 20 artists, all of whom will be present at the show to talk with visitors: Ray Brown, Marla Epstein, Lindsey Foggett, Joe Garcia, Hiromi Gibbs, Pat Gilmore, Kathy Harder, Carol Heiman-Greene, Gary Johnson, Leslie Kirchner, Sue Kroll, Lee Kromschroeder, Susan Labouri, Patrick Murphy, Akoko Okeyo, Kim Shaklee, Jerry Simchuk, Tom Tiedeman, Jerry Vande Berg and Sandy Zelasko.
