Silver Educational Center Gallery
Join us for a wine and cheese reception for our next art installation.
Underwater photography is, for Pierrette, less artistry than it is bearing witness to nature's miracles. With each dive, she marvels anew at the colors and textures of the sea; both the tiniest details and the panoramic splendor. Being able to capture some of these images has, over the years, enhanced Pierrette's passion for the underwater world.

Gallery hours: Monday - Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Weekends by appointment

How to Draw Natural Forms of Life
Meet at the Silver Educational Center
Wednesdays 9:30 p.m. - 11:30 p.m.
$20 per class
Learn to develop a natural, individual drawing style using forms from nature as your subject. Through close observation we will examine various types of organic forms and explore each form's unique qualities. Movement, use of positive and negative space, exaggeration, choice of composition and employment of light are some of the means of imparting individual materials that will lead us to our discoveries. Please email Kathie Milligan at
Leashed dogs are always
