EDNA Contemporary Gallery recently acquired a new storefront in downtown San Luis Obispo. The gallery is home to contemporary abstract and representational paintings, photography, and sculpture, and will host a grand opening for the public on Friday, September 17th from 6-8 pm. Please come have libations and appetizers with us, meet gallery artists, see work in person and enjoy the music of Dan Curcio, Moonshiner Collective.

“EDNA brings world-class artwork to the Central Coast, and our new space fosters a casual, fun atmosphere for art viewing,” says Director Sheryl Daane Chesnut. Bay area artist, Suzie Buchholz, states: “This event is already generating a lot of interest and response.” Many are enthused at the opportunity to listen to live music and view art in-person after a year and a half of stop-and-go shelter-in-place. Buchholz recently had an exhibition at Crocker Museum in Sacramento, California, which showcased her abstract oil paintings that have been lauded for their bright palette and joyful composition. Buchholz will be present at the event, alongside many other EDNA Contemporary artists. The gallery strives to be a point of connection for collectors, community, and artists, and builds art appreciation through personal relationships.
