Mother’s Day is arriving quickly and we know that many of us have such busy life’s that sometimes we can forget what is really important, letting our loved ones know that..we love them. What makes your mother feel special? Is it something a bit fancy like their very own gorgeous piece of artwork? Would they prefer to wear their gift? Could it be something as simple as a comforting tasty treat? Maybe she just needs to hear a appreciative word, but we all know a little gift on the side never hurt anything! Double Dip Gallery is open 7 days a week starting at Noon, we will be available on Mother’s Day for your viewing & tasting pleasure.
Jeannie Vodden will be in her element at Double Dip Gallery, bringing you the chance to see how she works up the elegant watercolors everyone admires. Jeannie has a certain romance to her paintings that leaves everyone at awe thinking, “How did she do that?” Now you have the chance to pick her brain and sit back to watch the development of what she does best. We have the pleasure of having Jeannie in the gallery from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, do not miss out on the fantastic opportunity. Double Dip Gallery is located at 222 W. Pine Street, across from city hall.
You can venture into the world of an artist while they are releasing their gifted talents onto their canvas. Our first Open Studio Saturday will be held this weekend, featuring Tony Segale. As he demonstrates what it is like to go through the creative process, you will be able to be a fly on the wall learning techniques and witnessing the birth of a painting of Tony’s choosing. Feel free to wander the gallery choosing your own favorite paintings from our Hypothetically Speaking Exhibit, while checking in on our artist as he opens his mind and let’s the depths of within fall out onto his paper.
Double Dip Gallery was lucky enough to get on the map for Lodi’s “Wine In Bloom” Wine Stroll coming up this weekend April 18th from 6pm-9pm. How did an Art & Ice Cream Gallery become a part of a wine tasting stroll? We had a clever trick up our sleeve, by teaming up with local Michael David Winery and Gunthers we were able to bring you Petite Petit Sorbet. It is a refreshing take on wine, here to help you keep that stamina up for all the walking you will be doing around downtown Lodi. Double Dip Gallery will also have a table set up on School Street where you can sign up for our Wine Stroll Raffle.
A fun class for beginners to intermediate students interested in watercolor media. Basic exercises will begin our adventure, the same technique you will use to create an entire painting. Tony will demonstrate and then you can paint, with plenty of time for individual guidance. We will explore color, technique, value and design principles. The three-day workshop will be held from 9am-4pm.
$250.00 for three day workshop, 10% discount for you and your friend that you bring.
For more information or to sign up contact Tony at

Did you know Double Dip Gallery offers art workshops taught by are gallery artists? You have the chance to learn from scratch or brush up on your already talented skills with these multi-day classes. Coming up on April 21st is Tony Segale’s Abstract Watercolor Workshop, starting with a sense of design, you will create a composition for your painting. Then you can challenge your feelings and render your emotions with shapes, texture, color, values, line and direction. Abstract painting is a journey, sometimes lost, and then found again. “For me, abstracts have a way of making the foreseeable that which never happens, and the unforeseeable that which your painting becomes”, Tony Segale. Class starts at 9am, ending at 4pm with a 45-60min lunch in between. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 209-642-0009 for more information or to sign up.
