Deviant Design Group (DDG) owner, Mark Barata, and Long Beach watercolor artist, Debbie Lewis, have teamed up to present “Long Beach Soul: Now and Then” on April 14 at DDG’s new flagship store in downtown Long Beach’s Arts District. From 8-11 pm, they will celebrate all that is best about Long Beach by presenting new Long Beach-themed jewelry, as well as a new painting which contains 10 Long Beach icons from the past and present. The public are cordially invited.
The evening will include a ribbon-cutting event and champagne toast, a silent auction for the new painting and new jewelry piece, as well as a raffle for a print of the painting.
Ms. Lewis has been painting Long Beach scenes for the past 3 years, concentrating on historic buildings, including the Villa Riviera, Queen Mary and historic homes, and will have many of her original works, as well as prints, on display and available for purchase.
