Anna Jacke Fine Art at The Presentation Center

In September 2014, I hung my largest exhibit to date at the beautiful Presentation Center, 19480 Bear Creek Road in Los Gatos.
Snuggled into the aromatic Santa Cruz Mountains, the Presentation Center is a popular venue for ongoing Bay Area retreats and conferences.   I was fortunate to have the months of September through December 2014 to display 37 original watercolor paintings - many from my fall-theme portfolio: Colors of the Harvest.   My artwork is in the great Dining Hall, Welcome Center foyer and adjacent hallways. 

Most of the framed artwork is for sale, with the exception of a few paintings which are from my personal collection.  I also have 26 original matted works for sale in the Welcome Center Gift Shop, individual and packaged greeting cards and The Artistic Touch 6, a hardcover book featuring two of my watercolor paintings now on display at the Presentation Center (below).  A portion of the proceeds goes directly to the Presentation Center.

Last Friday, I spent some time on the grounds of the Presentation Center, enjoying the vistas of the Santa Cruz Mountains, the fresh air filled with the scent of eucalyptus, redwood and Douglas fir. Color is everywhere!  However, in the Dining Hall, a large decorated Christmas tree reminded me that fall is now over.

On Sunday, December 7th,  the Presentation Center will host their Annual Merry Mountain Christmas event from 1:00pm to 4:00 pm.  I will be there with my husband Peter to enjoy the festivities and to talk about my art!

There will also be refreshments, carriage rides, SANTA, trails and paths to explore, tons of activities and crafts for kids, and the gift shop will be open with items including local handmade caramels, local honey, organic chocolate, artwork, books, and much, much more! This event is open to the public, free of charge, so come visit us and join in on the holiday festivities!

Hope to see you there!   -- Anna Jacke
