A SOBO visit after a rained out Plein Air

Leslie, Thouraya and Terri had planned to do some plein air painting at the Tibet-Butler preserve, but nature had other plans. After it started to rain, we went over to see the CFWS juried annual member show at SOBO. It was a safe visit and we enjoyed the 2 beautiful shows. In the outer gallery was the abstract artwork. At least 3 of our society members were in this show! We have a lot of talent!

In the newly constructed gallery was our exceptional annual juried show. It has been getting great reviews! One comment, from SOBO, was that it had so much life!

We all felt that going during the week, when crowds are small, was a good thing. The gallery had masks and hand sanitizers as you entered. Social distancing was encouraged.

Parking is conveniently located next to the building and there is also a free parking structure across the street.

If you get hungry, Pammies Sammies is next door. There is a walk-up window and outdoor eating area for a nice leisurely meal in safety and comfort.

If you haven’t’ seen the shows yet, we highly recommend them.

Thank you SOBO for this beautiful and safe venue. A good time was had by all!

Everyone wore masks to stay safe.
