The aRt Cottage is pleased to announce the opening of our next show, featuring the work of Bill Richards. Bill is a self-taught artist.  He has never had a professional art class in his life.  His paintings consist of life-like portraits and figures, both nude and draped.  He also is very proficient in painting animals and landscapes.  Every hair and every wrinkle can be seen in his amazing realistic portraits.  His medium of choice is oil and he paints on birch.  His work is on exhibit from coast to coast, and now at the aRt Cottage as well.

The opening reception will be next Saturday, September 7th, from 2 to 7 pm. Food and beverage will be provided. We will also have live music.

 We will also be featuring the work of Sandra Artru, in the Red Room Gallery.  Sandra Artru has been painting since 1997. She firsts learned techniques in a portrait class in a pivate setting in Brentwood. There wer 13 women present for an 8 hr session for 5 days. After that  experience, other classes and workshops were more of the same - private and in a small setting. Her first school experience with paint was in high school. Her paintings consist of oil, acrylic, watercolor and ink line drawings.For the last three years she has been working on painting famous people with using the palette knife and acrylic paint. Several of these will be on display for the month of September.
