The community is invited to a free art reception celebrating local artwork featured in the “Welcome to Santa Clarita” art exhibit on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at
7 p.m. at The MAIN (formerly Repertory East Playhouse).
The “Welcome to Santa Clarita” art exhibit showcases watercolor paintings by local artist Cecily Willis and takes viewers on a colorful road trip of iconic Santa Clarita landmarks and scenes. The MAIN is located at 24266 Main Street in Old Town Newhall.
A resident stands outside the Saugus Café on a cloudy day, the Sierra Pelona Motel’s neon sign pierces out of blooming cacti – these are just a few examples of beautiful Santa Clarita moments and settings captured by Willis in her paintings. By preserving these ordinary, yet beautiful scenes on canvas, the paintings inspire visitors to take a moment and appreciate the new, old, and sometimes forgotten Santa Clarita landmarks. The paintings will be on display in the gallery until March 25, 2017.
For more information regarding the art reception and exhibit, please contact Pablo Cevallos at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information regarding all City art happenings, please visit SantaClaritaArts.com.
