Setup Day for August 2016


We had a great time getting Beth Sargent’s and Susan Manbeian’s artwork up on the Gallery Show walls on Saturday.  It was an early foggy Saturday morning so we all enjoyed munching down donuts while we chatted with all the artists.  Jeff Odell and Greg Siragusa, part of our Hanging Crew, helped Susan carry up her wonderful canvases…some were very huge!…and get the canvases ready to hang.  Beth had already carried her photography up the stairs and was ready to go!  Beth’s photography is amazing and it’s the first thing you see when you start climbing to our front door.  And Sue’s ginormous and wonderful  canvas of flowers greets you as you come up the inner stairway.  Come to the Gallery at take a look at our amazing artists and new shows.



We had a good turn-out for our Lunch Bunch crowd at the Dutchman.  The city was so crowded with tourists that it was good we left early for lunch and we got our special table so we all could visit.  Jack and Gay shared photos of their trip to Alaska and we caught up on all the fun things that we all have been doing this summer.  We have such fun!!

Setup Day for July 2016


We had a very productive Set Up Day. Chuck Pruitt arrived super early and we got his wonderful photography up on the Guest Artist Wall in the Upper Gallery. Pat Newton arrived soon after with her amazing oil paintings and we installed her show in the Lower Gallery. Both shows are so colorful and full of awesome images of the Central Coast. Opening Reception Night is Friday, July 8th from 5-8pm. Please mark your calendars and come to support your Gallery Mates!

Windows On The Water restaurant has asked Gallery at Marina Square to be the artistic force behind the painting of their Cow for the SLO County Cow Parade 2016. Many businesses in SLO county have purchased cows and contracted with different artists on the Central Coast to paint the cows. Windows On The Water's cow is named the “Half-way Heifer” to be designed and painted by our Gallery Painting Team-- Jeff Odell and myself, Don Doubledee and Greg Siragusa. She will be depicting “So Cal” on the left side of her and “No Cal” on her right side and a 50 yard line down her center-- and lots of landmarks painted on both sides. Right now, the full sized cow is standing on tarps in Suite 4, next to the Wine Shop downstairs. When she arrived, she was totally white fiberglass, and now she has her first coat of black paint on her. After she’s all painted to the design specifications of Stan and Brian (Windows owners) by our Gallery Painting Team, she will be mounted on a cement block and stand on our patio in front of the restaurant. I will keep you posted on her progress.
