The El Cerrito Library has re-opened for limited browsing, books and some other action! Barbara Epstein-Eagle’s artwork has been out of view for the past year, and can now be seen. The Community Center status is still on hold, but reservations for picnic areas have opened, so perhaps the buildings will soon. Fingers crossed!

New “Open” theme exhibit at DMV went up on St Patrick’s Day! On view through July 14th are five works by each of four artists: Beverly Gilbert, acrylics; Jennifer White, watercolors; Kathy Diehl, and Therese Pipe, each with photography. Most of the chairs have been removed, so the art is accessible and enjoyable!
To comply with Covid-19 capacity limits and coordinate with their priorities, temperature checks, face masks and distancing are required for everyone. Manager Rubin Sharma asks that visits be limited to a few at a time, and not after 3 pm. Tell staff at the “No Appointment” line that it’s just to briefly view the artwork.
Discussions about artwork and especially sales are to take place outside the building, exit as directed at Manila St.
Visitors are welcome a few at a time, with masks and distancing, just check in at the door.
Reese Owens and Marva Reed are the curators. Contact either of them if you want to be in the next show mid-July to mid-Nov. Again, there is no theme, your choices. Larger pieces work better in the space. http://firstname.lastname@example.org
