Brush Lettering with Tony Segale

Brush Lettering With Tony Segale

June 14-16, 2016

Three- day workshop (tues,wed,thurs) from 9:00am-4:00pm

at Tony Segale’s Double Dip Gallery

Located at 222 W. Pine Street, Lodi CA

$250.00 unless you bring a friend and then you both get 10% off!

Participants in this workshop will learn how to handle a brush for lettering, and develop the skills to render the three basic lettering styles – sans serif, roman and script. After practice and understanding of ‘swinging the brush’, we will use that skill in the painting of a watercolor.
Tony will demonstrate and then you can paint, with plenty of time for individual guidance. We will explore color, technique, value and design principals. At the end of our day we will review the finer points of our paintings, and leave the enemies at the gate.

If you have an interest in this workshop or know someone who would benefit from learning the stroke of the hand then please contact us at either or come into the gallery located at 222 W. Pine Street, Lodi CA.

Art & Community


com·mu·ni·ty, kəˈmyo͞onədē/, noun
  1. a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.
       Lodi is know for many things, one of which is our strong sense of community. With about 60,000 people that can get almost anywhere in town on Lodi Avenue, it’s easy to be close with your neighbors. A visitor to the gallery from out of the area had mentioned, “you can’t find places like this anymore”, and that’s something Lodians can really take pride in.
     The definition of community mentions “a sharing of common goals”; some of Lodi’s most evident common goals can be seen all through out the town. Lodi is a beautiful city, and its because of the care of our community. The first thing one will notice upon entering our town is the abundance of greenery. Our fertile landscape is perfectly adorned with all kinds of shapes and colors that mother nature provides. The preservation of our oldest buildings is another characteristic of Lodi. A quick drive through downtown can give you a glimpse into the past.
     Double Dip Gallery’s newest exhibit, “Ten Years After, the Walldogs”, is about the weekend ten years ago where a group of passionate artists gathered in Lodi to paint historically themed murals. This movement was brought to our quaint little town by Double Dip Gallery’s owner and creator, Tony Segale. He knew this was exactly what Lodi needed and used it as an opportunity to illustrate Lodi’s history. These murals brought beauty to our downtown area and strengthened our sense of community.
     It’s good to take pride in an accomplishment. The city of Lodi has accomplished becoming a beautiful, welcoming tourist destination for visitors and a place to call home for its residents.
Double Dip Gallery is located at 222 W. Pine Street in downtown Lodi. We’re open from noon until 9 p.m., everyday. We invite you to come view our newest exhibit, “Ten Years After, the Walldogs”. If you’re already a resident of livable, lovable Lodi, you’ll find a new appreciation for the artwork you pass by everyday. If you’re a visitor to Lodi, we want to welcome you into our community and show you what makes Lodi so great. 

New Hours & New Exhibit (how exciting!)

Double Dip Gallery has the best customers, hands down. You demanded and we listened – we will be open noon to 9 p.m., 7 days a week until September! That means there’s a whole extra hour every day for you to come say hi, enjoy Tony Segale’s fine art, and try some of Gunther’s delicious ice cream, no excuses. 🙂

With the passing of April showers and the beginning of May flowers, we also get to introduce a new art exhibit in the gallery. The new exhibit, “Ten Years After, the Walldogs”, pays homage to the Walldogs, a group of highly skilled sign painters and mural artists from all over the globe. Tony will be showcasing the art he’s done in the form of murals and signs all over Lodi, from concept sketch to finished product. Be sure to stop by for May’s First Friday Art Hop on May 6 to see the new exhibit.

To learn more about the Walldogs and their movement, check out their website, or come in and ask Tony Segale, our resident Walldog.

“It is art that makes life, makes interest, makes importance… and I know of no substitute whatsoever for the force and beauty of its process.” Henry James

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…

Have you ever stopped and just looked around you? Have you noticed the shapes and colors that make up objects you pass by without a second glance? Look at the building you walk by every day, the one with infinite bricks and meticulously placed tiles of complimentary colors, and appreciate the rigid symmetry. Check out a tree – and really examine it – find the nooks and crannies and tiny details mother nature hides all around you. Notice the juxtaposition of man’s creations with the softness of nature. Take the time to see the art you’re surrounded by everyday. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and this world is a masterpiece waiting for you to find it.

Tony Segale Fine Art & Gold Leaf

Double Dip Gallery would not be here with out the inventive and arcane mind of Tony Segale. Tony’s idea has always been to bring his artwork to the public eye, for that is where his passion lies. If you are a follower of Double Dip Gallery’s social media networks, then we ask you to go follow Tony’s fine art and gold leaf social media pages as well. You will receive a better look into the occupied life of Tony as an artist, and get a bird’s eye few on the beginnings to the ends of many of his projects.

” Lodi, Wine Region of the Year”
Wine & Watercolor Paintings
featuring Tony Segale

If you haven’t heard, our glorious little town of Lodi beat out all the big shots when we won “Wine Region of the Year”. Now that we are getting our names on the international map, we thought why not dedicate an art show to the wonders of Lodi’s wine and ALL you can accomplish with it. Tony is proving that art can be whatever it chooses to be, and even with just a glass of wine and a brush you can make yourself a masterpiece.
