The Public Art Committee welcomes its newest exhibit Spring Flowers in Watercolor by Dorie Smith. Dorie is a contemporary realist painter of flowers who resides in both Lafayette, California and Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  Her artistic process began twenty years ago after her four children were raised, allowing time to pursue her interest in painting. Her flower paintings are characterized by vibrant colors and simple, bold compositions.   She has exhibited her art work in private events and group shows at the Center for the Arts in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  In California, she has periodically exhibited her art in the California Watercolor Association of Walnut Creek.  Her art work is in many private residences and business offices.  All works of art in this exhibit are for sale.  Contact Dorie at

Use Less or Useless, photos by Melissa Mohle

We welcome our newest photo exhibit by local photographer and DVC student, Melissa Mohle.  Melissa describes her exhibit, "The photos are of beautiful landscapes with the color altered in an unnatural way with images of everyday products from a grocery or hardware store aisle running through it.  This artwork serves as a reminder that all the products we use end up in our natural environment and alter it. Hopefully the viewer might decide to use fewer products in the future, hence the title, "Use less or Useless"
