A night for the Arts

Last night was the opening of "ConTextual" and also our student exhibit at BHS, "Observation". Both shows were a great success! Thank you for your support of the arts in our community.

I based my work for "ConTextual" on this gorgeous ficus tree in Hawaii I saw last November.

"Building Strength" stands 15" and is for sale for $325 with a portion of the proceeds going to First Book Bakersfield. It can be purchased through the Arts Council of Kern.
Below you can see it in progress last month at my house.


  1. What an exciting night for Bako arts! I stopped by ConTextual and was blown away by the amazing work of Barb, Chris, & Claire. Unfortunately, it was late and your beautiful pieces were put away for the night. Hope to see you and your talents again soon!

  2. Oh, no! They are back up and should be up until the end of April. :-) So if you stop in for coffee you should see them. Thank you! Sorry I missed seeing you!
