         On  Saturday  February

      The Arts celebrated their
      10th Year Anniversary Art
      Exhibition. This  exhibition
      was  to  showcase  the  work
      of very accomplished local
      artists and their traditional,
      impressionistic, abstract and
      contemporary  paintings.
      The artists individual
      experiences are reflected in
      their paintings and “illustrate years of dedication under
      the influence of master instructor Christopher Burlini.”
         When  Christopher  was  a  child,  he  found  some
      paintings behind a furnace in his home that were done
      by his grandmother. Looking at each of them, he thought;
      “I could do that.” And, “that” he did and has done all his
      life so far and will continue to do. Christopher’s father
      and grandfather were artists (sculptors) as well and Chris   Chris & Belinda Burlini                 Adobe By Romaine Kaufman
