    Pacific Paradise - Oceanic Art Opening

    Artist Sheryl Schroeder has created beautiful and diverse work for her solo show Pacific Paradise Oceanic Art, opening at the AFS Gallery on Thursday, September 5th, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Sheryl Schroeder is a native Californian and an avid conservationist. Growing up on the beach, Sheryl surfed and played in the ocean and picked up trash to keep the beaches clean. Sheryl campaigns for less plastic and for an end to over-fishing of our oceans. Her work is whimsical, fun, and bright, influenced by her early animation days and artists like Mary Blair.
