The 2nd Story Gallery is the ‘Best Kept Secret in Town’ and has had ongoing shows since 2009.
This month, two local artists will be showing their work: Julie Stokes and Diane Yglecias. The Festival suggests you make it a party evening with wine and hors d’oeuvres (no charge) and dinner at Lucabella restaurant in the Walker House, 121 N. San Dimas Ave. For more information call the Festival of Arts at (909) 599-5374.
Julie Stokes was born in Arcadia and moved to Glendora, California, where she raised her family. Her love of art was developed at an early age and now she teaches painting using the ‘wet-on-wet’ technique to her students. While Julie teaches she always enjoys making a difference and creates an atmosphere of success while on one’s journey.
Julie enjoys capturing the essence of nature by painting in a realistic style. Currently, her paintings are featured at Artists’ Boutique Gallery. They can also be seen on the popular website Fine Art America as well as in many California homes.
Diane Yglecias was born and raised in Southern California. Her gifted artist mother first introduced Diane to art at an early age. But it was not until many years later that she was able to focus on art and develop a deep love for painting.
Essentially self-taught, Diane works traditionally but sometimes blends realism with a touch of an impressionistic stroke. She especially enjoys painting wildlife and nature, Western and Native American Art. Diane seeks out images of the old west, abandoned trucks, horses, people, and pets. She is also a member of the Associated Artists of the Inland Empire and the Pomona Valley Art Association.
