And Our Host, Artist Mark Canepa

Meet the host of our ArtFirst! Holiday Show and Sale, El Cerrito artist Mark Canepa

For the last few posts I've been introducing you to the awesome artists in our ArtFirst! Holiday Show and Sale. If you missed any, see the links at the end of this post. We're in our second and final week of the Show, and I have just two more artists for you to meet. First, our host, Mark Canepa. Mark, the resident artist at the Village Shops and Galleries, generously let ArtFirst! show our work alongside his.

Mark is a well-known artist in El Cerrito and throughout California. He specializes in metal art, but excels at any medium he turns his hand to. His work has been shown at many prominent art galleries and he has a large client base that includes many of Hollywood's  famous musicians, actors and actresses. Mark has also won awards for numerous parade floats in The Tournament of Roses. Click here to see a YouTube video showing some of Mark's work.

Hard to follow that act, but last up is me! I figure since you read my blog you already know all about me. If not, I'm a nature photographer and mixed-media artist. I use my images and designs to create a wide range of arts and crafts, some decorative, some useful. 

I love to design fabric, which I print on cotton or silk and sew into purses, pillows, vases, bowls, and more.

You can see more of my photos, blended collages and designs  at my website, or click here to see some of my arts and crafts at my Artfire online gallery.

Now that you've met all of us, we'd love to meet you! We're open at Mark's Village Shops and Galleries, 10330 San Pablo Ave., El Cerrito, from noon to 6, today through Sunday December 2nd.
