Reception Sunday July 5, 1 - 3pm

Beth Bale's exceptional watercolors will be featured throughout the month of July.  Her depictions of animals can be so realistic you think it is a photograph, so comedic that it's easy to tell a story from the picture, or more flowing and impressionistic.  Beth can do it all - very well!  If you are unable to come to the reception to meet her, be sure to stop by during the month to see some amazing paintings.
