The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host a reception for Bay City artist Karen Gale Friday, Jan. 1, from 3 to 5 p.m.
The reception will feature 30 of Gale’s paintings under the theme “Seeing the Light.” She will be on hand to discuss her work and the show. Refreshments will be served.
The artist said her oil paintings “examine the idea of searching for, finding, and seeing light physically, emotionally, and spiritually.” The works will remain on display at the Center throughout January.
Gale has taught for eight years and is experienced with both beginning and experienced artists. She studied in the Department of Art and Design at Southern Utah University. She lives in Bay City, teaches art, paints, and is illustrating a children’s book.
Gale’s oil painting classes at the Hoffman Center were so popular this fall she will continue them on Thursdays, starting Jan. 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. New students are welcome.
