Heroines, Ingenues & Leading Ladies Gualala Arts Center presents an exhibit titled "Heroines, Ingénues and Leading Ladies" showing October 13 through November 4 in the Elaine Jacob Foyer. There will be oil paintings along with pen and ink drawings by Jim Vickery. His classic techniques conspire with humor and satire to create unique and edgy works.

Since moving to the coast, he has been inspired by the beauty of the area and has begun to paint landscapes in oil.
