Saturday, May 3rd at 7PM Monrovia artist Joseph R Davis is having a birthday party. To celebrate he and the Paint n Play 2 Art Studio and Gallery are throwing him a party. It is FREE and open to the public.
Joseph is a local man, went through the MUSD system and is among our local “art stars”. Joseph is very involved in the Monrovia Art Festival Association that supports art education in the MUSD Schools. He is classically trained as a graphic artist. He took up photography and has blended the two media to produce some very startling images.
I’ve talked with Joseph and his wife Amber a couple of times over the last few weeks. Joseph has a couple of new pieces he will debut on Saturday. He won’t give me even a teaser jpeg to see what he has in store for us this time around. I can’t wait for Saturday to get here so I can see what he has been up to the last few months.
I’ve been to enough art receptions to know to often you get stuck with Two Buck Chuck and freebie nibbles that aren’t much more than Cheez-whiz on day old bread. This is going to be different. Food is being catered by The Peach Cafe which many here in town consider our best upscale eatery. The wine is being catered by California Wine and Cheese and it is promised we’ll have a special selection for this party. Good art, good food and good wine, can’t go wrong with that combo.
Paint n Play 2 Art Studio and Gallery, 418 S Myrtle Avenue, Monrovia CA 91016.
