Showcasing the work of PAA Member Artists
With Featured Artist: Maria A. Bales

Congratulations to Maria A. Bales, the featured artist for this year’s Spring Library Show. Maria has lived in Petaluma since 1967 and raised her family here. She had a gallery art store in The Great Petaluma Mill for 6 years until she retired and devoted her time to her long-time desire to be an artist. She studied watercolors with a local teacher and attended basic art classes at SRJC. She has also studied with many nationally-known artists at workshops and retreats.

Maria is very active with the Petaluma Arts Association and has held the offices of Treasurer, Art in the Park Chairman and been on many other committees. Currently she is Vice President.  Maria works in all media, her favorite being watercolor.

For more about Maria and her work, view her PAA Artist Profile page, visit her website, and don’t miss the fabulous Argus Courier – Petaluma 360 feature:  Brushstrokes of Color Flowing on Canvas.
