Vanishing Species – Art Exhibition


Apr 11, 2017 to May 20, 2017
09:00 AM until 04:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.


Award-winning artist Rita Sklar is a Signature member of the California Watercolor Association—and an avid birder. Her awards include a special prize from The San Francisco Flyway Festival for her “Winged Migration in Black and White.” The American Association of University Women selected two of her bird paintings to feature on greeting cards.  She received a Distinguished Artist award from the National Museum of Women Artists.

Her show, “Vanishing Species,” features an exploration of the wonders of nature and the decline of many of our beautiful creatures.  The compositions resonate with color and vibrant shadows, and Sklar’s unique style imparts a sense of weight and structure to the paintings, not usually associated with watercolor.  Critics describe her paintings as a mix of abstraction and realism, giving the paintings a feeling of movement and immediacy and praise her work as “capturing the subtle mood of the mystery of nature.” For a preview, visit her web site at www.ritasklar.com.
