When I took the position of SAL President, I was full of passion and energy to assist our community gallery thrive and grow. I’ve experienced recent challenges including becoming very ill for over 2 months and then the death of my dear 25 year old son. As I’ve taken a back seat, it has been wonderful to witness our members coming forward with both their individual and combined contributions. Your willingness to take on responsibilities has greatly contributed to our momentum, however this is just the beginning. June 11th is our general meeting and I hope to see you there. It’s my vision that with all our involvement we can become a core inspirational creative outlet for our community.Amy Baskerville
The next Board of Directors meeting will be on June 6th at 4 pm. SAL members are urged to attend and to voice your opinions.
My name is Brennan Jeffery. I'm a local practicing artist attempting to learn about myslef through my work. Each painting is a personal diary of my interests, influences, idiosyncrasies, and mental battles... The things that make us, us.
I grew up in Manteca CA, but didn't pick up a paintbrush till I attended SJDC in 2010. Once I was taught how to mix colors using a palette of primaries I was hooked. I've been studying and exploring painting on my own ever since, primarily using oil paint. My works have mostly been educational pursuits, each piece trying a new approach or scheme in hopes of learning something from it to further develop myself. - Brennan Jeffery

It allows for beautiful results with simple quick steps. Jeffery will also share about his background, influences and creative processes.
This event is FREE and Open to the Public
On Sunday, June 24 from 2-5 PM, our guest demo artist is Heinie Hartwig who will paint a landscape the way the Old Masters did from 1860 to 1900. Hartwig primarily paints western landscapes although he also paints seascapes, animals, abstracts and still life.
Hartwig’s artwork has been favorably compared to Albert Bierstadt and John Constable for its romanticism, European feel and composition. The overall results of his experimentation and training have led to numerous commendations and awards, including the prestigious Triton Museum of Art competition. Hartwig’s artwork is proudly displayed in such venerated institutions as Brigham Young University, Mills College, the Robert Louis Stevenson School and the Monterey Institute of Foreign Studies. His western landscapes may be found in the permanent collection of museums nationwide and in Russia.
This event is FREE and Open to the Public
