Karen Lockert – Behind the Scenes: A Tribute to Home

Karen Lockert –
Behind the Scenes: A Tribute to Home

Oct 23, 2017


When you walk into the room, a friendly gentleman offers you a glass of wine; a display of an unlikely assortment of amateur artworks is posted on a wall; at a table nearby, a half-dozen or so people are busy with scissors and glue sticks, while others are engaged in a lively conversation with the guest of honor.

Artist receptions, typically, are wine-and-cheese affairs, where people stand, meet the artist, and make small talk as they peruse the paintings on the walls. However, at Guerneville’s November 3rd, 1st Friday Art Walk event, local artist, Karen Lockert’s opening reception at the West County Health Center, will be somewhat different.

Featured at this event, along with the aforementioned wine, and healthy food, is a selection from Lockert’s “Home” series of mixed media interpretation of some of West County’s “ordinary” vintage buildings – homes and businesses, unique to this area.

Attendees/visitors are encouraged to wear their “down home” casual clothing, create artwork of their own, party favors that they can take with them, and celebrate the Center’s six-month anniversary since re-opening after the January, 2016 fire that devastated the original building.

The public is cordially welcome to visit the Health Center, at the corner of 3rd and Church Streets, from 5-7 PM on Friday, November 3, 2017, to meet Karen, enjoy refreshments, and enter into an interactive artistic experience.
