Enjoy Gerald Brommer - and his paintings

The art community is welcoming renowned watercolorist Gerald Brommer to town soon to lead 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, May 22, at the museum, 603 Main St.
