GALLERIES: Find destination at Claremont Community Foundation
The Claremont Community Foundation Art Gallery takes art lovers on a journey to various destinations through paint in July and August.
“Destination Art” features the work of Sherry Marger, who utilizes acrylic and watercolor paint. The display is inspired by Ms. Marger’s travel experiences around the world. Destinations include locations both near and far, from familiar Claremont landmarks to the metropolis of San Francisco.

The organization, established in 1989, promotes and facilitates philanthropy through community leadership, grant making and donor fund stewardship and aims to enrich the lives of citizens in Claremont and surrounding communities.
