A little of this, a little of that……..

Hi, artists! 

Keep an eye out for our upcoming Classes & Workshops schedule – coming soon…  (if you’re a teacher and would like to teach at Art Central this summer, please contact me IMMEDIATELY!!!)  I’m also looking for artists to do Demonstrations.  Interested?  E-mail me!  (

Some of you have admired  (or laughed at) my bumper sticker: “Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup”.  I got this from Earthtones Gifts and Gallery up in Paso Robles – 1319 Park Street.  Greg tells me they got some more in.   I’d recommend checking out their store in any case …  They have some beautiful things.

I just ordered some SOLTEK french-style easels – they are amazing – should be here in about 3 weeks … We also just got in a shipment of Drafting Tables.  Logan will be assembling them as time permits, but you’re also welcome to buy them in the box!  (Extra discount if you do!) … I’ll be going to another trade show next week, will probably have to buy some new fun stuff – watch out …

A reminder that I LOVE special ordering products for you…. please don’t hesitate to ask.  If I can get it for you, I will.

I will send out a “Call for Artists” very soon, but July & August will be about “Wine & Vine” …  this is an open group show – watch for details!

Please stop by the gallery to see our new artist, Gail Sheley Davenport.  She has a real love affair with color & photography, and she combines them in some WILD ways!


Thanks, and happy painting!  etty
