Gallery 1855 at the Davis Cemetery Presents:

JULY 2014:Betty Berteaux, Marlene Lee, Mary Ann Montague

In the heat of July, cool down with the marvels of mixed media at Gallery 1855. We are proud to present work from award winning watercolorist Betty Berteaux, the exciting mix of acrylics, inks and watercolors by Mary Ann Montague, and the calligraphy inspired abstract paintings of Marlene Lee. This exhibit will be on display weekdays, 9 AM - 3 PM, throughout the month of July.

Betty Berteaux, who uses landscape and familiar objects as sources of inspiration, currently teaches watercolor classes in Davis. Marlene Lee worked with a dip pen for traditional calligraphy for many years and has transferred that skill into painting abstracts using brushstrokes and marks to express feelings and imagery.

Mary Ann Montague, who teaches basic drawing, has used her retirement years to return to a life-long interest in painting. The exploration of various media is her joy. While watercolor is a priority, acrylics and inks are closing in fast and are the focus of this show.

You are warmly invited to a free open house and reception for these three artists on Sunday, July 13th from 1 P.M.- 4 P.M. Come meet the artists, view their work, munch a bit, and finish it off with a stroll through our impressive arboretum grounds. Gallery 1855 is located in the Davis Cemetery District Office at 820 Pole Line Road, Davis, CA 95618. Please phone (530) 756-7807 or check the website www.daviscemetery.org for more information.

Length of show: July 4, 2014 - July 31, 2014
Open house: July 13, 2014 from 1 PM to 4 PM
