Experience the art of Robert Buelteman at The Wine Bar

The Wine Bar at the Shoppes at Harbor Villages is an excellent spot to unwind and share a glass with a friend. It also serves as a venu for local artists, including bay area photographer Robert Buelteman. A San Francisco native, Bueltman’s work embraces the same spirit of exploration and discovery that first dawned during his childhood when the natural beauty of the area evoked in him a recognition of space and light. His work is remarkable and brings to the viewer a new understanding of the poetic nature of California’s unique landscape. Robert Buelteman’s work will be in display at the Wine Bar for the month of August. Please visit the the artist’s official website, http://www.buelteman.com, for more information.

See the 50-50 Art Show at the Sanchez Art Center

When we travel, we are often looking to relax and expand our lives by experiencing new things, from white water rafting to wine tasting. Artwork can act as a form of rejuvenation and enrichment as well, and that can certainly be said about the 50-50 Show at the Sanchez Art Center on Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica near Half Moon Bay.  The art show will feature the artwork of sixty seven artists who produced the exhibited work over a 50-day period exploring a single theme in one medium. The work was selected by Marian Parmenter, co-founder of SFMOMA Artists Gallery and fills three galleries, providing an ample amount of material to take in during a visit.
