Ane Carla Rovetta pastel show at the Mono Lake Committee extended until December 31

“Impressions from the silent sage … Great Basin paintings,” the current show in the Mono Lake Committee Gallery has been extended through the end of the year due to popular demand! Rovetta’s beautiful and very reasonably priced art has been flying off the walls; card sets are available as well. Be sure to stop in and see the show on your next visit to Mono Lake!

The Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore is open from 8am-9pm through Labor Day and 8am-7pm after that.

Ane Carla Rovetta’s formal training was as a zoologist. Like the artisans of the European Renaissance, she is committed to the practice of art and science as kindred disciplines. Ane Carla has spent most of her adult life unifying the two in paintings, handmade art materials, and lively public performances across the United States.

An illustrator since 1978, Ane Carla has produced the artwork in six full books, and countless scientific and educational periodicals. She has had one woman shows at Coyote Point Museum, the Randal Museum, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Point Reyes National Seashore, Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center, Marin County Libraries, the Mono Basin Bird Chautauqua, and has been in group shows at The California Academy of Sciences, the San Francisco Bay Model, the Environmental Action Committee of West Marin, Sonoma County Arts Council, Marin Agricultural Land Trust, and the Bolinas Museum.
