La Cañada might not be known as gallery row, but that isn’t stopping Michael Humphries from trying to expand the art offerings in the foothills.
Humphries’ gallery, which bears his name and opened just five months ago in the 800 block of Foothill Blvd., will unveil a new exhibit titled “Heart and Soul” on Feb. 4. Humphries is hoping to entice the community to see his works, and that of local artist Trish Kertes. So far, he says that it’s not clear if La Cañada can support a new gallery or not, but there are positive signs.
“I’m not sure how conducive [La Cañada] is to a gallery,” Humphries said. “We’re still trying to get our feet wet. We’ve only had two shows … and they were both pretty successful.”
The upcoming show will feature landscapes in oil, acrylic and watercolor from Humphries, and plein air oil landscapes from Kertes.
