Elk Grove, September 1, 2022 – The Elk Grove Fine Arts Center will present Sweet!, an exhibition featuring Polly LaPorte and Robert Gonsowski, October 1-27, 2022, and the 11th Annual Art Tour on October 8, 2022. The Center will open for a First Saturday Public Reception on October 1 from 4-7PM.

“Sweet! captures the bold and delicious colors and shapes of desserts of all kinds. Sacramento artists and friends Polly LaPorte and Robert Gonsowski sought something fun and interesting to paint together. Their effort developed into a lively and interactive exchange of ideas and techniques found in this delectable series of oil paintings.”

Also this month the Center presents our 11th Annual Art Tour on Saturday, October 8, 2022 from 10AM-4PM. The Annual Art Tour allows us to showcase many of the talented artists in our community, present them with an opportunity to sell their works, and offer art lovers a chance to meet the artists in an informal setting. This event also features an art raffle allowing patrons to support the Center and win an original work of art by participating artists.
