“When Reason Comes Round” Exhibit Extraordinaire by Glynis Chaffin-Tinglof

Join us for ART AFTER DARK – Sept 2nd, 6-8pm!!!
Glynis Chaffin-Tinglof is such an amazing person – She is talented, funny, and sweet as can be… we met nearly 10 years ago when we were both part of San Luis Artists Gallery, and I thought her art was extraordinary then.  But WOW – has she grown…!  and her new work is even more incredible!
Please join us this Friday evening, from 6-8pm at Art Central for an evening of exceptional art, music and company!   Live music by “Elitajazz Trio” will be stand up bass, guitar, clarinet and vocals….jazz standards.
This exhibit will be up for the month of September… Don’t miss it!
