By From page A11 | July 11, 2014

Three Davis-area artists — Betty Berteaux, Marlene Lee and Mary Ann Montague — will be featured in the July exhibit at Gallery 1855, in the Davis Cemetery District office at 820 Pole Line Road.

The public is invited to join the artists for an open house/reception at the gallery on Sunday, July 13, from 1 to 4 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

Berteaux is a watercolor artist who draws inspiration from landscapes and familiar objects. She has won several awards for her artwork, and teaches watercolor classes in Davis.

Lee worked with a dip pen to create traditional calligraphy for many years, and has transferred that skill into painting abstracts using brush strokes and marks to express feelings and imagery. Lee will have several calligraphy-inspired paintings on display for this exhibit.

Montague teaches basic drawing, and works with a mix of acrylics, inks and watercolors.

The exhibit will be on display weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through July. Visitors are invited to see the exhibit and stroll through the adjacent cemetery arboretum grounds.

For more information, call 530-756-7807 or visit www.daviscemetery.org.
