Coming In May - Gary Bergren's Students
Gary Bergren is a San Francisco Bay Area native, born in Berkeley.  His interest in art began at the early age of five and he has been actively involved ever since.  He enjoys western and southwestern art (sometimes referred to as Cowboy and Indian art).  His works have been likened to those of Charles H White, Frederic Remington, James Bama, Howard Terpning, and Jim Fox. 

Gary has taught in Contra Costa County for many years and consequently has many followers. I can personally recommend him as an art instructor for the novice as well as the professional.  I have had several semesters with Mr. Bergren and found myself developing confidence and staying true to my own style. 

The show will feature work of student's from his Martinez class.  You won’t want to miss this one.
