Serenity
by Alexangel Estevez - This exhibit will be in the Centre Gallery, West.
"I paint nature because of its intrinsic beauty. Replicating is not my purpose, but to bring back a piece of what took me there in the first place.
My eyes capture scenes and explores the details of nature that often elude us as we pass by. I enjoy being swept away with breath-taking views. As an artist, my passion is to express myself through oils on canvas...by pushing and pulling the paint and capturing the moment nature provides."

Movie Stars and Me: The Art of Celebrity by Randy Morrison- This exhibit will be in the Corner Gallery. "With my art and with this exhibit, I hope to give the viewer a chance to re-live, re-visit, look back in retrospect or perhaps be introduced for the very first time to those fabulous faces and tinsel-filled places that epitomizes the Hollywood of yesteryear and all of the Ballyhoo that went with it."

Best of the Richmond Photography Meetup Group - This exhibit of local photography will be in the Skylight Gallery.
