Some of you will recall the wonderful reception in 2020 held for local artists Doris Besikof, Phil Martin, Susan Bartsch and Carol Young. The art was fantastic, the artists were fun and engaging, (laugher could be heard outside of the Center), the hors d’oeuvres were delicious and the wine flowed throughout the evening. Carol shared her inspiration for her beautiful paintings. Phil Martin generously gave away one of his artworks. Doris received compliments galore for her colorful pieces. It was a night to remember!

And then the pandemic hit. The JD Spreckels Center had to shut down. We stayed in our homes and awaited news. It was a sobering time for all.

Fast forward to November 2021. Take Two! New artwork by three of the original artists is hanging in the gallery hallway and more art will be displayed in the Great Room! This long-awaited Take Two reception will be held on Friday, November 19th in the John D Spreckels Center’s Great Room. We all get to enjoy another gathering of friends, mingle with the artists and kick off the 2021 holiday season! See you there!
