The art community is welcoming renowned watercolorist Gerald Brommer to town next week where he is leading a five-day workshop for the Pleasanton Art League. He is also judging the annual Spring Show at the Alviso Adobe being held May 21-23.

"Gerald Brommer is a highly sought after artist who leads plein air watercolor and collage workshops all over the country and abroad," said Pleasanton watercolorist Charlotte Severin.

Brommer is author of more than 35 art books, many used as texts in art schools and colleges. His work is in 4,000 private collections in 37 states, five foreign countries and at galleries in California, Florida, Bermuda and London.

The Museum on Main is hosting a one-person show for Brommer from May 22-29. The public is invited to meet the artist at an opening reception from 2-4 p.m. Saturday at the museum, 603 Main St.

Brommer also will give a free demonstration at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Pleasanton Senior Center, 5353 Sunol Blvd. The public is invited.
