Gardens of the World- Carole Caccavo Watercolor Art Exhibit


Carole Caccavo Art Exhibit

Tuesday, August 12 – Sunday, September 21 
Having a warm love for sketching, drawing, and painting, Carole Caccavo, a longtime resident of Thousand Oaks, has been a devoted artist for many years. Initially, Carole concentrated on floral arrangements using oil paints. She gradually transitioned to teaching cloth doll making, and selling Tole painted items that she created. In the past few years, she expanded her interest in art, by painting still life scenes using watercolors. Her passion is painting countryside panoramas, rustic buildings and bridges, old world canals and street scenes. Shades of warm browns, soft beiges, light grays and mellow greens are prevalent in her paintings. She is currently enrolled at Studio 316, Thousand Oaks where she is perfecting techniques in detailing, depicting perspectives, and developing color contrasts. Carole Caccavo has exhibited her art work at the Ventura County Fair where she was awarded several First Place and Second Place ribbons.
