There are 40 pieces in the show, by 13 artists. The show runs through October 6. Go see it if you can--it's a strong show! We heard that some of the locals are saying it's one of the best the CAL gallery has hosted in years.
The show was juried for awards by Half Moon Bay gallery owner Ellen Joseph, who had this to say about the difficult task:
Walking into this diverse exhibit, I was struck by the high level of skill visible in each piece. It is amazing to me that colored pencils can produce such brilliant results. It was certainly a challenge to pick just a few winners because each entry has it's unique beauty and story to tell. I applaud all the artists who contributed to this show. Keep up the excellent work!
