Re-Centering Mandalas, Paintings & Pottery Max Lesser, Laurie Curtis, and Carol Whitman are showing their art at Toby's Gallery from April 2–28. The work includes Carol's botanical mandala photographs, Max's oil and watercolor paintings, and Laurie's maiolica pottery. Over the past year, as we kept our distance from each other and re-centered our lives to home, we turned inward to expressing our creativity. These pieces attest to the power of art to bring hope and joy, and get us through difficult times. Now that we're gradually re-awakening to life in a post-vaccination world, the artists want to share what they've created with you. Due to ongoing COVID restrictions that limit crowd size, there won't be an opening gala. Please stop by. Toby's is located at 11250 Highway One, in Point Reyes Station. The gallery is open Monday–Saturday from 9am–5pm, and Sunday from 10am–5pm. Admission is free. All the art is for sale, and you're invited to come find your own special piece. In addition, there will be materials for visitors to make their own mandala to photograph and preserve its ephemeral nature.
