INLAND! Come see our mother daughter show in January 2015!

We are starting the year off with a Bang!!!

Michelle Stevens and Marian Loomis have collected individual paintings for display in a show titled “Inland”.  The title comes from both artists’ strong affinity for the midwestern United States and painting the ethos and the icons that express the spirit of that country.

Michelle and Marian have worked in San Luis Obispo for many years and this is the first time they have combined their distinctly different styles for our first mother/daughter show!


“Winter Scene” – Marian Loomis (oil and collage on metal)
