Temecula artist to mingle
Temecula-based artist Jami Tobey will be at the Laguna Art Group Gallery on April 7 to discuss her paintings in a special artist reception.
Tobey is known for her colorful, whimsical landscapes, which utilize acrylic and metallic inks to make the vibrant hues stand out. The event will feature "Under the Silent Moon" and "Siren's Song," which are two pieces that have been a point of discussion for thematic reasons and for intricacy.
"It is a pleasure to reveal these new paintings at one of the premier galleries in Southern California," Tobey said in a statement. "My latest work reflects an effort to test the boundaries of form, attitude and sensuality in art."
The Laguna Art Group Gallery is at 570 S. Coast Hwy. Her work will be on display through April. For more information, call (949) 715-1860.
