Abstract Art Class with Raphaele
July 30, 2PM - 4PM (registration required)

Raphaele is a painter and a mixed media artist. She was born and raised in Paris, France, where she studied painting and printmaking while completing her Doctorate in pharmacology and a degree in performing arts at l’Ecole de la Rue Blanche in Paris. She worked in her Parisian studio for several years, spending time in NYC to work with other artists. Raphaele permanently moved to the United States in 2003 and developed her art career mainly in southern California and in Arizona. She shows her work all around the country.

Raphaele works with many different media, and often chooses unexpected materials for her research, with a focus on art magazines and wallpaper, and lately playing cards in all formats. These will be presented in a touring exhibition in Las Vegas later this year.

Art Exhibit: Comic Hero Quote by Chris C.

Friday, September 09, 2022
Peninsula Center Library
Foyer Exhibit Area
Art In Our Library is pleased to present "Comic Hero Quote" from August 5 - September 9 at the Peninsula Center Library.

"I've always loved comics and how they can inspire young and old.  The process of creating this art brings me back to childhood and helps me remember the excitement of seeing all my heroes on brightly colored comic strips. Fusing the comics with bold and motivating ideas just seemed natural, and so fun to design.  You are your own hero!"  -Chris C.

Art Exhibit Featuring the Redondo Beach Art Group

Monday, October 24, 2022
Malaga Cove Library
Gallery Exhibit Area
Open for viewing during regular library hours
September 1 - October 24, 2022
Opening Reception Friday, September 9 4pm-7pm

The way something feels to physical touch comes immediately to mind when thinking of texture, but while some artists might invite people to touch their works, most use special techniques to show visually how something might feel. Some  artists use paints of varying thicknesses, specific camera filters, or sculpt with materials that have unique textures. In this show, Redondo Beach Art Group artists will explore texture using a variety of materials and media.

We hope you visit this truly unique exhibit and join us for the opening reception where attendees will have the opportunity to meet and talk with the artists.
