PACC members Judy Kramer and Steve Shpall are among the artists participating in the Gallery House August & September exhibition.  Gallery House has provided a space for local artists to display their work since 1957.


This is the first new show at Gallery House since the shelter-in-place protocols were implemented in mid-March.  


Judy has spent more time at home than planned this spring.  In this exhibition, she presents black and white images taken at Cowell Ranch State Beach, just south of Half Moon Bay, in June.  These images, as well as others, may be seen in the Gallery House catalog:

Each piece displayed in the exhibition has a QR code that enables touchless purchase, since there is no staffing at this time. Al, the café owner, can help take pieces down as needed. There may be additional information when a smart phone is directed to the QR code.
