New Exhibit of Lisa's Paintings at Tomate Café in Berkeley

From May fourteenth through June twenty-fifth, ten of my framed California landscape paintings and one small giclée will be exhibited and for sale at Tomate Café at 2265 Fifth Street (at Bancroft Avenue), in Berkeley.

Tomate is an excellent, “artsy” restaurant in West Berkeley near the Fourth Street shopping district, and serves breakfast and lunch every day of the week. It’s also dog friendly, with a lovely leafy patio in the courtyard for sitting with your favorite canine.  Come on by, have a latte or a great meal, and take a look at my recent work!

All of the pieces exhibited at Tomate (and most of my paintings for the last 30 years) were framed at The Framer's Workshop in Berkeley. Carefully chosen frames and mats make an enormous difference to the final look of a painting, and the experienced staff at Framer's is excellent at working with the artist to match the style and tone of a painting with the perfect frame. My digital files don't show the gorgeous frames - but you can view them at Tomate!
