FINE ART AND FASCINATING DISPLAYS
Local Painter Kay Eichert
As a child, Kay Eichert was always drawing pictures with anything she could find. Her interest in art carried through high school with many elective art classes. Many years then passed without art in her life as marriage, children, and a career took front and center.
In 1970, Eichert moved to southwestern Oregon and joined the Coquille Valley Art Association, later moving to San Juan Island in Washington, and then back to California where she continued to paint. Eichert states that she has been extremely fortunate to paint with some wonderfully talented artists, especially John Barnard, to whom she will ever be beholden for his patience and kind criticism.
Eichert's art will be on display the month of February.
Library Displays in March
The Paso Robles City Library displays in March include the art of Page Graeber and the treasures of the Santa Lucia Rockhounds.
Graeber has lived and worked in Paso Robles for 25 years and has won numerous awards. "This year I would like to display my newest directions in painting, which will include acrylic-mixed media-collage. Each large painting denotes an area of study found in our library!"
In the display case, the Santa Lucia Rockhounds once again present their impressive collection of fossils, rocks, "thunder eggs," and gems.
