Every Sunday, the 80 or so members of the Burlingame Art Society exhibit their work in a makeshift studio in the Burlingame Recreation Center, and, as July rolls in, artists can expect more viewers for their pieces.
Now that the summer Music in the Park concert series has kicked off, concert goers in Washington Park are also stopping in to view (and perhaps purchase) the work of art society members.
"We get a lot of people coming in during Music in the Park," said McMorrow.
In the month of July, the society, established in 1957, also lets non-member artists display their work. Throughout the year, members pay dues in order to take advantage of that exhibition perk.
The Burlingame Art Society also hosts artist networking events and an annual Spring Art Show.
In a way of giving back to the local art community, the society volunteers its time to the San Mateo County Fair. At this year's fair, the society helped to set-up about 700 exhibition pieces of art.
Members also took home awards for entering their own work into the fair's contests; McMorrow was awarded first place in the pastel category.
A new member since February of this year, Katrina Danilenko took advantage of sunny weather and tunes from the Music in the Park event one Sunday to set up a canvas in Washington Park.
"Its like heaven [in the park]. Its a wonderful community, and this event gets everyone out in the fresh air," said Danilenko, just before adding a stroke of green paint to her canvas.
The Burlingame Art Society meets the first Wednesday of every month, September through June, at Burlingame Lions Club Hall (990 Burlingame Ave.) at 7 p.m.
