New works from SMCISD K-12 students will also be on display. Light refreshments ar

“Spring Fever” features a variety of images, mediums, and local artists’ take on spring. More than 40 original creations by 18 local artists celebrate the beauty and traditions of the season in a show that hangs in the Tea Room and stairwell galleries through April.
“An approach to culture, nature and ornamental designs” is Hahn’s solo show in the 1910 Room, which includes a total of 10 abstract expressionist works featuring multi-and-intercultural symbolic work influenced by the Bauhaus movement.
Many of the works on display are available for purchase. A portion of proceeds benefit the Price Center, a non-profit community center operated by the Greater San Marcos Area Seniors Association.
