2023 UPCOMING FEATURED ARTISTS
January
Michael Dadasovich
Karen has been juried into Art About Agriculture at the Santa Paula Museum, 117 N. 10th Street, Santa Paula, CA. The exhibition will run from November 12 – March 5, 2023, with an Opening Reception on Saturday, November 12, 4 – 6 pm

Iris Sabre's exhibition “The Jagged Edge,” will be featured at the Benicia Plein Air Gallery during the month of November.


Iris Sabre’s work is rooted in a belief in the restorative powers of nature, the ability to provide sanctuary and solace in troubled times. As a plein air painter, she communicates the joy and beauty of the natural world. Working with oil paint and using bold and vivid colors, she works rapidly to complete relatively large format paintings.


Born and raised in San Francisco, she received a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts at SF State University, as well as two California teaching credential, Multiple Subjects and Fine Arts. She has taught elementary school in the Bay Area for many years, where she continued to inspire young people with the wonders of art and nature. A founding member of the Benicia Plein Air Gallery, her work may also be seen at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery and the Marin Society of Artists Gallery in San Rafael.

Iris will be in the gallery to greet old friends and make new ones during gallery hours on Saturday, November 12th and Sunday, November 20th.
