One exciting part of working with other artists in running a gallery is that we challenge each other artistically. This December we are running a group show with the theme of "presents". Terri Hill will be showing her watercolors and in the one above her 'presents' are edible. Each of the gallery artists is challenged to bring in a 8" x 8" canvas with a 'present' theme. Stop by after Monday to see the results.

Kathleen Alexander is our newest artist at Viewpoints and we are honored to be showing her watercolors. This month she joins Carolyn Hofstetter for our Fall into Color show. Kathleen enjoys painting close ups of flowers and fruit using luscious dark washes and for this show she has worked on an amazing series of large paintings, beautifully framed, of grapes and persimmons.

Viewpoints Gallery has been operating in the same location in Los Altos for over thirty years. We are an artist run business and the membership of the gallery has gradually changed over time. This month, somewhat by co-incidence, we have the oldest (in terms of membership years) and newest gallery members joining forces for a show titled 'Fall into Color'. Carolyn Hofstetter gets the prize for the longest membership at Viewpoints. Here are a few of her fall themed paintings. The next post will feature fall work of our newest member, Kathleen Alexander.
