Dawn Evans’ Art Literally Can Fill A Room! You’re invited To A Special Reception At Cafe Toscano

Dawn Evans has transformed Cafe Toscano with five murals to make you feel like you are dining in Tuscany while enjoying a glass of wine and dinner!  As you enter, the “Wine Cellar” beckons you to sit and relax. The middle dining room is given special attention by a large golden mirror accented by two floral and vase murals. “The Vineyard” creates an ambiance, as you look out from a balcony onto an expansive vineyard, villa, then to the distant mountains and sky. These Impressionistic landscapes bring Italy to Cafe Toscano – and to you!  Cafe Toscano invites you to a Free Opening Reception to celebrate Dawn’s achievements.  The Rickie Report shares the details and urges you to RSVP. Free refreshments and food will be served.

Wine Cellar” 23′ x10′, mural

In this wine, dessert and coffee cafe area it feels as if you are looking into a wine cellar in the next room. From viewing the wall straight on, in the center you will see the exact location of the wine barrels. The illusion created is that from entering from either side, the angle turns towards you …and you can walk right in!






An Impressionistic landscape artist, Dawn Evans has painted exteriors of buildings, interior walls, niches, ceilings and entire rooms for businesses and residences. Her passion to paint is to capture the crisp, bright colors and light of nature: from tropical beaches and oceans, to vineyards in Tuscany, to a field of flowers or to a mountain peak.

“Toscano Vineyard”, 28′ x 10′ mural


The concept is to create an atmosphere that you are on a balcony overlooking a villa and vineyard. The distant mountains, the rolling hills, a villa, the contrast of the white balusters and red poppy fields are typical of Tuscany.
