Artist Reception

Jun 09 2018
Venue: Gallery 621, 309 First Street, downtown Benicia
707-297-6860

 

The public is invited to an opening reception for June featured artist of the month, Robert Nelson

Saturday, June 9

4-7 p.m.

Robert Nelson will be showcasing his work in "Wild and Whimsical 2" from June 7 through July 1.  He creates assemblage sculptures using mainly recycled materials, much of it "straight from the strait."  Taking litter from our shoreline and making aesthetically pleasing and enjoyable art, while possibly shedding some light on our failing recycling efforts, is what Robert seeks to convey.

During the June 9th reception, Robert will give a 5 minute talk about his art and its challenges.  Other Gallery 621 member artists will also have works on display.

Gallery Spring/Summer hours are Thusday 12-3 p.m. and Friday-Sunday, 12-6 p.m.
