For something wonderful to do closer to home, now is a great time to check out the S.L.O.P.E. (San Luis Obispo Painters for the Environment) exhibit at the Dana Adobe.  The adobe property has undergone some wonderful restoration and the new Dana Adobe Cultural Center just had its grand opening.  Denise Schryver, a 3CPS member and talented pastelist, and her S.L.O.P.E. colleagues are showing some gorgeous pieces in all mediums.

The Grand Opening of Cultural Center/Nature Festival highlights a S.L.O.P.E. (San Luis Outdoor Painters for the Environment) Art Exhibit. It features some of our region’s top landscape artists, who use their art for awareness, funding and education about Central Coast’s treasured open space, ranches, farmland and wildlife.
