Rebecca, will be exhibiting he winning “Candle Light” photograph in the Artists’ Gallery’s March installation of the “Art Gallery Weekend Event Series”.

Each monthly event in the 2016 series will feature works by many of our established and burgeoning visual artists, performances by professional musicians and student musicians from local colleges, we will feature a variety of published and unpublished poetry and novelistic readings by some of our local authors, plus beautiful performances by local performing artists. These events will be held on the last Friday and Saturday evenings of each month beginning in March. We hope you will take the time to explore the dozens of artists on display and enjoy a weekend high-lighted by a celebration of the arts in Bellevue.

Friday, March 18 at 6:30 PM will launch this exciting new series with the artwork styles of Arne Hansen and Gordon Satri. Tristan Reid will read from a selection of his writings on Friday evening and Saturday, March 19, will feature poet Nick Romeo. We are pleased to present the jazz sounds of the “Dante Romito Band” on Friday and Saturday evening. The band will be performing their first instrumental rock single, the “Guardian Angel”.

We look forward to including Rebecca’s beautiful photography to the list of artists exhibiting during our March gallery event. Be sure to look for Rebecca’s photograph during this exhibition.
