CYNTHIA BRODIE: ANIMALIA On View: February 27 - April 12 Reception: Wednesday, February 28, 5-7 pm
What do they think? How might the animals, birds and even plants experience the world we share with them? Though science can tell us a lot, Cynthia, as an artist, loves to explore this subject through observation and imagination. She likes to capture the individual personality in animals but often uses some abstraction in her paintings to try and connect with that mysterious realm of “beingness” of creatures in nature. Come and enjoy looking into, and possibly through, the eyes of the creatures we share the world with.
HANSON & BROWNING: TRANSMISSIONS On View: April 17 - June 7, 2018 Reception: Wednesday, April 18, 5-7pm
Dana Hanson and Olivia Browning are both lifelong Sonoma County artists. This exhibit showcases a stimulating and wide variety of mixed-media art techniques, including photography, monoprints, and pen and ink drawings. Dana's work includes dark and hypnotic landscape imagery inspired by dreams and imagined places, as well as animal and human studies, and abstracted depictions of personal life events. Olivia's works showcase her photographic skills capturing tender human moments, insight into the human soul, as well as her explorations of photographic manipulation to create dynamic abstract prints. Both artist's draw on their many years of learned skill, and also see this show as an opportunity to reveal through their work an ongoing processes of experimentation and growth through art.
