July 7: EarthTones Gifts & Gallery
Announcing Art Exhibit: Sacred Light – Sacred Lands” A Journey Thru the Nat’l Parks By Paul J. McCloskey at EarthTones Aspire Gallery, 1319 Park Street in Downtown Paso Robles.
McCloskey presents enduring images of the landscape, wonders and unique landscapes that show why national parks and monuments have been placed in national trust.
Sacred Light-Sacred Lands is a ‘Painting with Light’ collections uniquely McCloskey’s artistic style. National Parks and monuments are depicted including Arcadia, Mesa Verde, The Carrizo Plain and many more.

His work is sold to individuals and has appeared in national and local publications.
