The arts in Downey

Taste of Downey art

As I mentioned yesterday, this year's Taste of Downey event included an art exhibit featuring work from 16 local artist, mostly painters and photographers. Downey Beat quoted featured artist Jamie Rowland as explaining, "Everything in the show is from Downey or about Downey."

We contributed five photographs (and were thrilled to sell three of them). It was exciting to see people responding to our photographs. (The picture to the left first appeared here in Downey Daily Photos.)
