“Wintermission” - a show between shows that features selected works by Gallery Artists designed to refresh and warm even the longest, darkest winter days - runs through March 4. Reflecting a wide range of styles, prices, motifs and media, the show continues the mission of presenting the best of the best of more than 100 East Bay artists.  Also on hand is a wide-ranging juried selection of locally created fine crafts and jewelry. All 2-D works are available for sale or rent through an exclusive “No Regrets” rental program. Free, open to the public.

Lamorinda Arts Alliance announces the exhibit “Tiny But Mighty: Honoring RBG” which will feature abstract and representational 2-D artwork that is bright, bold and powerful, just like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  This show will include mixed media, collage, monotype, oil and cold wax medium, and paintings in watercolor, oil and acrylic.  LAA member Ruth Stanton curated the show. Pat Calabro, a Pacheco resident, was selected as the featured artist.  Her digital acrylic collages are bright bold and full of intensity - so much intensity that she must tone down areas to make places for the eye to rest.  Calabro exhibits her work throughout the Bay Area and as far away as Ghent, Belgium. This free exhibit runs through Feb. 26.
