Sunday, December 11 ~ 2:00PM-4:00PM ~ Merry Room
Andrew Kusmin, award winning water-colorist, beloved teacher and gallery owner, has recently published another masterpiece, only this time it is in print! Andrew describes it like this: 'To turn their efforts into art, all painters must first and foremost discover 'why' to paint.' Palette of Dreams is the artful story of one man's journey to answer that primal question and help others find and follow their own artistic paths.  Join us for an afternoon of art, memoir, humor, stories and Andrew's beautiful book.
This program is co-sponsored by Westwinds Bookshop, which will have books available for purchase and signing.
