Local Artist Watercolor Exhibit Celebrates Santa Clarita People and Iconic City Landmarks

Residents Invited to Free Art Reception at The MAIN on March 16

Post Date:03/10/2017 2:02 PM

The community is invited to a free art reception celebrating local artwork featured in the “Welcome to Santa Clarita” art exhibit on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7 p.m. at The MAIN (formerly Repertory East Playhouse).  The “Welcome to Santa Clarita” art exhibit showcases watercolor paintings by local artist Cecily Willis and takes viewers on a colorful road trip of iconic Santa Clarita landmarks and scenes. The MAIN is located at 24266 Main Street in Old Town Newhall.

A resident stands outside the Saugus Café on a cloudy day, the Sierra Pelona Motel’s neon sign pierces out of blooming cacti - these are just a few examples of beautiful Santa Clarita moments and settings captured by Willis in her paintings. By preserving these ordinary, yet beautiful scenes on canvas, the paintings inspire visitors to take a moment and appreciate the new, old, and sometimes forgotten Santa Clarita landmarks. The paintings will be on display in the gallery until March 25, 2017.
