Named the Discover Art League Art Show, the event is presented by the Discover Art League in conjunction with the Discovery Bay Chamber of Commerce. The show also coincides with events such as the Business Showcase Expo and Art, held Tuesday March 31 from 4 to 8 p.m., and the Art Awards Ceremony, scheduled for Saturday April 4 from 6 to 8 p.m.
For Arkwright, owner of Arkwright Designs, the dual events offer an opportunity for local businesses and area artists to share their passions with the residents of Discovery Bay.
“Since we have a nice new visitor center where residents are always invited to hang their art, we thought it would be nice to have a show there and invite people to come down to see it,” said Arkwright, a past chamber director. “So Sue (Clanton) and I started working together to coordinate the show with the chamber, and I think it’s going to be great.”
The art show will culminate on March 31 with the chamber business expo, followed by the art awards ceremony on April 4. Local artist Bill Paskewitz will judge the works and two winners will be announced. All displayed artwork is available for sale.
The show is free and open to the public weekdays from noon to 3 p.m.; Friday and Saturday evenings from 4 to 8 p.m. The Discovery Bay Chamber and Visitor’s Center is located at 2465 Discovery Bay Blvd., Suite 200.
