Summer Exhibit at the Library

El Cerrito Library has an announcement concerning the summer theme exhibit at the EC Library scheduled for June 9 – Aug 11. The theme is “Building your Brain.” As Heidi Goldstein (library manager) informs, they are “interpreting this theme in both metaphoric and literal manners: building your brain not only by learning and reading but also by eating right and exercising, sleeping well; and trying new things.”

This theme should provide plenty of ideas for the artists who wish to participate in the summer exhibit group show.

If you wish to enter the exhibit, please send an email to Joan Mastronarde at
