Exhibit at the Monterey Conference Center

The City of Monterey, Museums and Cultural Arts Commission, and the Monterey Conference Center are pleased to announce the upcoming Alvarado Gallery exhibit "Celebrate Monterey in Fabric Art Quilts" featuring the Pixel Pals, a group of six local women who have been meeting monthly in Monterey since 2007 to explore digital techniques using Adobe Photoshop Elements to create art quilts.

This exhibit will highlight art quilts designed by combining photography, quilting and computers to create digital art images of Monterey scenery, animals, vegetation and events.  The group has been in exhibits at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles and Seaside City Hall.  Members are: Gudny Campbell, Gloria Hatton, Elizabeth Hull, Cheryl Smith, Anna Mae Gazo and Roberta Goulding Brunet.

Please join us for an artist opening on Friday, February 28, 2020 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM with light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artists.

The exhibit will be on display February 28, 2020 to May 18, 2020 in the Alvarado Gallery, located at the Monterey Conference Center, One Portola Plaza.
