Keep creating and sending in images! It inspires us and everyone who sees this!
Please read the following to be apart of our next virtual gallery:
Please, please, please – when you send images, don’t reply to this e-mail.
It is a “DoNotReply” e-mail, and images just won’t attach. Don’t know why, but they don’t. (Super frustrating for us!)
E-mail your images toArtCentralSLO@yahoo.com. Also use that e-mail if you are placing an order. And it’s so helpful if you include your name and the word “order” in the subject line. If you have questions, please call us during pick-up times (Mon – Fri, 9am-1pm) at 805-747-4200.
Behold, this week’s Virtual Gallery!
Before you scroll through the cornucopia of visual delights below, I’d like to share a thought from one of our customers (one of our “Virtual Gallery” artists). Please let us know if you like this idea and whether or not you would participate. Thanks, etty
You have supplied us, your customer artists, with our necessary supplies to keep us busy and creative during this crisis. Much thanks for your efforts and inspiration!
After seeing so many wonderful artistic creations in your blog, it occurred to me we might offer pieces to sell with proceeds going to local non-profit organizations in this time of need.
Haven’t completely thought this idea through but just thought I’d throw it out there. Maybe others have ideas to contribute.

“During this COVID19 thing, I have seen a proliferation of rainbows around the neighborhood — chalk art, painted rocks, etc. Such a hopeful sign — full of optimism. I’m normally a Pollyanna, but this week I was feeling the heavy weight of this pandemic. This is what I painted. “Rainbow under Siege” Acrylic ink and India ink on canvas 12”x12”x.75” Hope you are well and happy today and still seeing the rainbow🌈”
