Women Painters West 

October 8 – 25, 2008

Women Painters West held their first of two exhibitions at VIVA this season. In its 9th decade, this artistic organization offers stunning work in many mediums from its professional members. The show consisted of paintings, collage and mixed media with a unique feminine view point.

The exhibition was juried by noted Los Angeles artist, Bobbie Moline Kramer. Ms Kramer attended Art Center and received her BFA at Cal State Long Beach. She has had many solo exhibits around the country and her work hangs in collections around the world.
