Alameda-Themed Art on Display at Library

Alameda Free Library is hosting an art opening from 1 to 3 p.m. today, Sunday, November 6, in the Stafford Meeting Room at the facility, 1550 Oak Street.

One of this month’s featured artists at the library is David Savellano, who works primarily en plein air (outdoors), “creating watercolor paintings that capture random moments – on the street, in nature, and wherever else his portable easel takes him,” according to organizers of the exhibit. “Painting outdoors, especially in the urban settings he favors, requires adaptability and above all speed. Usually the elements are a factor, like the changing light and the most alluring subjects are often fleeting or temporary at best,” they add.

His exhibit will be on display at the library through Saturday, November 26.

Savellano is active in the Alameda plein-air art scene, participating in events run by the Frank Bette Center for the Arts and achieving recognition for this creativity on the Island.
