||Terry Spehar-Fahey will exhibit a series of watercolors inspired by her trip to Venice, Italy, with California Lutheran University students. “Imagining Venice: Watercolors by Terry Spehar-Fahey” will run from Monday, Aug. 20, through Friday, Sept. 28, in CLU’s Kwan Fong Gallery of Art and Culture. An artist’s reception will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15. When Spehar-Fahey began teaching watercolor at CLU in 2006, the Moorpark resident dreamed of taking a class to Venice to paint in the footsteps of her heroes William Joseph Mallory Turner and John Singer Sargent. She made it happen in 2011, when she and communication professor Dru Pagliassotti led their first two-week travel seminar to the Italian city. After taking a semester-long course in preparation, the students toured, sketched, painted and blogged their way through Venice. Spehar-Fahey and Pagliassotti plan to return with a new group of students in spring 2013. Admission to exhibit and reception is free. The Kwan Fong Gallery is located in Soiland Humanities Center on the south side of Memorial Parkway near Regent Avenue. It is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
