ArtBeat Owner Kait Matthews said, “We were pleased to receive enthusiastic compliments from City officials, staff, and guests. Many expressed their pleasure in learning that ‘their little city’ of Vista offers such a vibrant arts and cultural community.” She continued, “Vista is a thriving economic beacon; a marvelous place for residents such as I to live, work, and recreate as well as create. The City’s commitment to supporting and showcasing quality-of-life amenities such as parks and arts is apparent and growing.” The show features work from 16 ArtBeat artists and can be viewed during Civic Center business hours through Oct. 20.
