Sculptor Ana Guerre and experimental watercolorist Tomi Hayes are featured this month in the Olde Ramona Hotel Gallery’s Discovery Room.
The public will have an opportunity to meet the two artists and other artists whose works are showcased in the cooperative gallery at an artists’ reception in the gallery at 845 Main St. from 3 to 5 p.m. on Jan. 10.
“Members of the Olde Ramona Hotel Gallery extend New Year greetings to all citizens of Ramona and artists of Southern California and beyond,” said Mardella “Sally” Levy, Ramona resident in charge of gallery publicity. “We also express our sincere appreciation of your patronage in previous years.”
Tiny Treasures: Let’s Do Things on a Smaller Scale is the gallery theme for January, and the artwork displayed will provide numerous interpretations of the theme.
Guerre, one of the artists featured this month, has studied at Saddleback College, San Jacinto College and with art teachers such as Susie Munger. She has won awards from the Temecula Art League, and her work has been in the Fallbrook Art Association Juried Show and Sculptures in the Streets of Mesa Phoenix. A number of her sculptures are in private collections in Phoenix, Virginia, Chicago and Puerto Rico.
Hayes has rejoined the art world after raising two sons and is experiencing an amazing resurrection, notes Levy. One of her works won honorable mention in the gallery’s 19th Annual Fine Arts Show and Exhibit in October. She studies with Ramona artist and teacher Carol Ravy at Palomar College, and she espouses fascination and reward in the various aspects of watercolor.
