Come see our newest art display at the Environmental Education Center in Alviso and learn about some of the native plants, birds and insects in nearby oak woodlands!

Local artist Kathy Kleinsteiber has donated framed prints of her watercolor paintings to the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society to be sold. The entire sale price will go toward the educational programs in Alviso. These high-quality, limited edition giclee prints are framed with archival mats, wood frames and plexiglass glazing.

The artwork will be on display until November 30, 2017. You may purchase any print now, but will need to come back after the exhibit to retrieve your purchase so that the show will remain intact for others to enjoy. Hurry in for the best selection!

Kathy Kleinsteiber is a San Jose nature artist who left the Silicon Valley tech industry to follow her lifelong passion for creating art. She loves to explore nature and to create artwork based on what she sees along the trail. While art is for humans and generally depicts some aspect of the human condition, Kathy likes to remember that life on this Earth is not all about us. She wants to communicate that we are not alone in this world and that other species call this beautiful planet home.

Kathy’s artwork has been exhibited in various locations, including Triton Museum of Art, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Yosemite National Park, Joshua Tree National Park, University of Colorado Museum of Natural History, Filoli Gardens, Berkeley Botanical Gardens, Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History, Pacific Art League, Santa Cruz Art League and the Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum.
