Traveling artists opening exhibit in Livermore

Works are from fall trip to Mendocino coast

The "Tri-Valley Traveling Artists," led by longtime Pleasanton art instructor Charlotte Severin, are hosting an exhibit of their works painted while on location on the Mendocino coast now through Dec. 30 at the Livermore Civic Center Library.

The public is invited to the opening reception from 2-4 p.m. this Saturday (Dec. 7).

The artists visited Mendocino from Sept. 8-14, where they were invited to tour and paint the historic Chinese Temple of Kwan Tai by Denise Lee, the great-granddaughter of the temple founder. They also enjoyed the Noyo Harbor and the Fort Bragg Botanical Garden.

Other trip events were a beach party that included roasting hot dogs and marshmallows, a pizza and movie night, and a potluck supper, all planned by Bev Patterson who coordinated the trip.

The exhibit will include plein air paintings in watercolor, oil and mixed media as well as photographs. Participating artists are Severin, Patterson and Simone Archer, Steve Barkkarie, Bonnie Bartlett, June Ferreri, Mary Jane Hassman, Carole Hilton, Robin Leimar, Dorothy Maestas, Helene Roylance and Lorraine Wells.

The Livermore Civic Center is located at 1188 S. Livermore Ave.
