Current Exhibition

Collaboration with the nonprofit, Living Amazon Peru

"Latin Flair" Exhibition

November 17th through January 3rd
Gallery hours are Mon-Fri, from 1-5pm.

View exquisite photographs taken by Brian Shepard during a journey last spring to the Peruvian Amazon, Havana Cuba, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

Known for his ability to capture the warmth of human connection, Shepard will also include photographs of the landscape and wildlife seen during his travels.

100% of all sales and donations will benefit Art Escape’s collaboration with Living Amazon Peru.

Each spring, Art Escape sponsors a teaching artist from Sonoma who travels to the Eco-Art School in a rainforest preserve near Iquitos, Peru. While there, an exchange of knowledge takes place – the teaching artist shares art-making skills with the local village children who in turn share their knowledge of native materials such as bark, fiber, and natural dyes.

Together they create art that emphasizes the children’s connection to the forest and their desire to protect the ecology of their home through environmental conservation.

Open Reception: Saturday November 17th, 5-7pm.

Gallery Admission is free!
