Dewitt reception Saturday at Kaleidoscope

   POINT RICHMOND - A reception for internationally known artist and yachtsman - and Point Richmond resident - Jim Dewitt will be held Saturday at Kaleidoscope Coffee.
     The event is open to the public and runs from 4 to 6 p.m.
     His artwork will remain on display at Kaleidoscope until April 30..
   Among his many awards was being named America's Cup Artist-in-Residence in 2013.
      Dewitt is AOPR's oldest member, having turned 90 in February and his artwork spans decades. But he hasn't slowed down and says he is still happiest with a paintbrush in his hand, immersed in the creative process.
     More information about Jim Dewitt's art is available here: JIM DEWITT.
