Pop-Up Art Gallery reception set tonight



Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted for purchasing the artwork. Works start at $20 and go up to several hundred dollars.

White will be available for portrait sketching and painting with 45-minute to one-hour settings. Pencil portraits are $30 and pastel portraits are $125. She also can work from photographs.

“It's a great way to utilize unused space. The city paid for the cleanup costs, electricity and water,” Laudadio said. “It's a very small price to pay for the admiration of arts in our community.”

Artwork featured in the gallery ranges from scar-nose head-jugs from local potter Leonard Lucas from Crockett, mosaic pieces by Pam Smith and folk art Santa Clauses made from cypress tree parts.

Co-curator and artist John Debessonet was credited with doing a lot of the legwork for the show, Laudadio said.

Artist Janet Decker is showing her art for the first time.

“Janet was a visitor at our last show and mentioned she dabbled in art, so we invited her to participate,” Laudadio said. “We hope other artists will stop by and register for future shows.
