The show runs until Dec 28 with an opening reception Saturday, Oct. 25th from 12:30pm-1:30pm More information 858-481-2155

We enjoyed seeing this calm and elegant works that progressed to a more and more abstract style. They are reminiscent of the same path that Turner made with his works...but these are a bargain starting at only $500.
Angela Jackson was a teacher on the team SD View Art Now of the DNA of Creativity produced by SDVAN. She works with her students each year on art and science projects.

We also enjoyed the play which is so well acted and with an intense dialogue challenging the religious beliefs of Freud in discussion with C.S. Lewis who converted from agnostic to religious believer. The scene is set right at the beginning of world war II and at the end of Freud's struggle with mouth cancer. It is emotional and and fraught but with great bits of humor. However, as a two man one scene play, don't eat too much or arrive tired as you may not manage to stay awake as this play calls for intense concentration.  The subject is presented in a very balanced way and if you are upset by the contemplation of what awaits us at the end of life, you can take solace in the soothing images presented  by Ms. Jackson.
