Distinction Gallery Presents: "Quiet Homes Await An Indian Summer" 

A solo exhibition featuring works by Andy Haynes, which runs from September 11, 2010 to October 2, 2010. 

Distinction Gallery retains its ritual of exhibiting highly skilled artists by focusing September's show on Los Angeles based artist, Andy Haynes.  Haynes is a favorite of the gallery and his new works are nothing short of breath taking.  His works presented in "Quiet Homes Await an Indian Summer" evoke ideas of spiritual guidance, innocence, growing, learning, and finding patience all surrounded by contemporary American Traditions.  The artist reveals his dedication to depicting the journey of life and capturing the moments of which life is comprised. 

The opening reception with the artist, as well as, live music will be held on Saturday, September 11th, 2010 from 6-11 PM. Complimentary wine and beer will be provided for those over 21.  In addition our studios featuring the work of 35 local artists will be open as well as over 50 international artists on view in "The Alley".  Distinction Gallery hopes you will join us in celebrating this exceptional show.
