The first meeting of Salon@79 met Feb 26 at Eileen's house. WE had a fabulous pot luck dinner, then each of us put up our art for some looking and talking. It was great! We also had a studio visit in Eileen's studio. We meet again April 9 and have plans for a movie about Agnes Martin popcorn and sharing sketchbooks.

She combines watercolor, wax, pastels, oil stick, thread, etc on paper. Very compelling.. And Julie Nelson also minimal color but very beautiful and funny... the website has a slide show to see all the work. But these have to been seen in person to really get the full effect.
The artists are:
