Phil Egan exhibits paintings in oil and drawings in conte crayon. These works, done almost entirely from life or still-life, represent a continuum of his art created before and after 2003, when he retired after 32 years of teaching studio art at Cañòada College.
An opening reception for “Phil Egan presents Paintings and Drawings” will be from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Friday; the show is on display through Feb. 29 at Avenue 25 Gallery, which formerly was known as ARTshare 25 Gallery. Peninsula Library System took over administration of the site; Leigh Toldi remains as curator.
The gallery is on the second floor at 32 W. 25th Ave. in San Mateo. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free. Call (650) 349-5538.
