TuesdayGrouppaintersFinalThe owners of the Jersey Mike’s Subs believe in “giving…making difference in someone’s life“.  The La Habra Art Gallery is privileged to be a recipient of the company’s generosity.  The Jersey Mikes Subs located at 1370 S. Beach Blvd., La Habra  will be the major sponsor at the Opening Reception of the Tuesday Painters Spring Art Show on May 2 at 6 pm. The paintings will be on exhibit until May 28, 2015.

The exhibit features the works of various media by a group of artists who meet at the Gallery every Tuesday thus the name Tuesday Painters.  This year’s show is a tribute to Barbara McLaughlin who started the Tuesday class twenty years ago as a Lab Class for many of her college students.  Even after the passing of Barbara in July 2014, the Tuesday Painters group continued to meet. Much of her words and phrases are still constantly quoted during critiques. If you wish to join the Tuesday Painters, they meet every Tuesday at the Gallery from 10 am – 2 pm.  Fee is $20 for 10 weeks.
