Arts Dis­trict, Selby Fleetwood Gallery is housed in a 250-year-old adobe with a lovely sculp­ture garden. The gallery of­fers a se­lec­tion of more than 20 pain­ters and sculp­tors work­ing in a con­tem­po­rary genre. Sur­rounded by this old-world charm, con­tem­po­rary artists bring fresh and new ap­proaches to art.

Re­cently two Cal­i­for­nia artists joined the es­tab­lished gallery.

He­len Steele was born and raised in Ger­many by two grand­par­ents who were also pain­ters and where she learned the love of draw­ing. Her non­de­script fig­ures seem to wan­der in am­bigu­ous spa­ces with ei­ther a muted or col­or­ful pal­ette de­pend­ing on the mood she is cre­at­ing.

Plein air painter Nathanael Gray is a na­tive of In­di­ana and re­cently moved to the Cal­i­for­nia Bay Area. Known for his ad­ven­tur­ous ex­plo­rations of his sur­round­ing en­vi­ron­ments, Gray paints ges­tu­ral ren­di­tions of his im­pres­sion of the land­scape us­ing thick, im­pasto paint.

On the evening of Fri­day, May 18, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. the gallery in­vites vis­i­tors to join them and sculp­tor Kevin Box as they celebrate their 10-year an­niver­sary to­gether. There will be new work by Box and live en­ter­tain­ment, light re­fresh­ments and fun.
