All things Ampersand,
One of our Scratchbord artist friends, Diana Lee, has a lot going on this year. Having just closed an annual exhibition with the Silicon Valley Women’s Caucus for Art, Diana’s full year is just getting going.
Currently, Diana’s work is hanging in the O’Hanlon Center for the Arts, featuring the Bay Area Women Artists in a juried exhibition running through August 20th. The opening reception is on August 4th along with a roundtable discussion of the participating artists on their creative process.
Diana also had work in the annual International Society for Scratchbord Artists exhibition, where she was honored with the People’s Choice Award with her work Camellias Reflecting.
This coming October, Diana will open her home studio give viewers a chance to see her art in person. This year during the Art Trails weekends, October 10/11 and October 17/18, there will be a sale wall where some of her work will be more affordably priced. To keep up with everything that Diana is working on, follow her Facebook page or tune in to her website.
