California Institute of Massage and Spa Services

California Institute of Massage & Spa Services is proud to Showcase the Portraits and Paintings of
Tatiana Yelina-McWethy

An opening Reception is set for Friday, December 5th
from 5 to 7p.m. at 772 W. Napa St., Sonoma

Tatiana, a student of the Art College of Russia since the age of 14, found her niche in restoring classic works of art. She worked under Sergey Kisilev, leading restoration artist for the world famous Hermitage Museum.
Tatiana excelled at restoring religious icons from Russian Orthodox churches all across the country. Eventually, she became a restoration artist of the Peter and Paul Fortress, which includes the Peter and Paul Cathedral where all of Russia’s emperors and empresses have been buried, from Peter the Great to Alexander III.
In her spare time, McWethy still pursued her own artwork.
She uses rich colors to create portraits, still-life and landscapes in the traditional European style.

Please join us for the reception Friday, Dec. 5th!

David La Chappelle has been a regular gift to the
Sonoma community for
nearly 10 years. During his visits, he brings his
wisdom and teaching
through workshops and his ‘story nights’ where his
spontaneous stories of
a particular soul’s journey begins with the
strumming of his guitar
bringing magical healing to many.

these challenges
are the critical initiation portals of our spiritual
