Atria Covell Gardens Visits the California Inspires! Art Show

Update: Read this 9/10/13 Davis Enterprise article, “A lifetime of experience at Capitol art exhibit,” to learn more about the Atria Covell artists and their views on the artistic process.

Atria Covell Gardens in Davis, CA must be full of art-lovers…five artists sent over eight pieces to be included in the California Inspires! art show at the State Capitol. And in August, two groups traveled to Sacramento to view the show hanging in the Eureka Room.

The first group, which arrived just days after the show first opened, included three of the artists whose work hangs in the show.

The second group to visit, while smaller, was no less enthusiastic about viewing the wonderful artworks.

A great time was had by all, and we are inspired by the camaraderie, friendship, and support that Atria Covell Gardens’ residents provide for each other!
