August 5 - September 21


This exhibit is a collection of my musical themed art. The Piano Series was created with acrylic paint using a palette knife on rough watercolor paper. Other paintings include texture and abstracts inspired by music. I hope you enjoy it! Music and Art are equally important in my life. So is whiskey, dancing, good jazz, light coffee and dark chocolate.

As Art By Anita I have been doing art professionally for over 20 years. I create paintings, photography, digital & mixed media art, murals and faux finishes. Mixing abstract images and maps with photos to make Fusion Foto Art and Live Event Art are my latest passions. I also do slideshows, websites and graphic design - many of my clients are fellow artists and musicians. Teaching weekly piano students and occasional art & photography classes help keep my days full. I stay involved in the art community and exhibit in local galleries and shows.

The Gallery

There are three large walls (16', 12', and 19') with studs spaced every foot to hang your work. There are outlets available for video pieces. Numerous track lighting fixtures can light your pieces to your desire. 

What We Offer

Each artist gets a two-month exhibition in our gallery. Toward the beginning of the exhibition Sabrosa hosts a special art opening event on a Monday evening called Sabrosa After Dark.

Proposals for shows in our gallery will include the following requirements:

  • Minimum of 18 pieces ready to hang or display

Financial & Liability Information

Sabrosa takes a 15% commission for works sold during exhibition in our gallery. Any pieces sold during the exhibition will remain in the gallery until the conclusion of the exhibition, unless suitable arrangements can be made for substitute pieces. All work is displayed at your risk. While the probability of damage occurring is extremely unlikely, we do recommend that your pieces are insured, listing Sabrosa Cafe & Gallery as a rider on your policy.
