The gallery’s Summer Show features work by 3 Sonoma County artists who are new to the gallery, Terry Holleman, Bernadette Howard, and Bambi Waterman. While their works have little in common in terms of medium, style or subject matter, they all share a sensibility of revering and preserving the natural world or natural ways of being human.
Bambi’s exquisite porcelain depictions of coral polyps, while delighting the eye, call attention to the fact that they are seriously endangered. Bernadette’s polar bear has a similar impact, and her abstractions also suggest wonder at the cosmos. Terry’s atmospheric depictions of country dances are contemporary, yet appear deceptively retro and nostalgic due to the fact that this type of timeless sharing of the human spirit is also somewhat endangered.
Recent acquisitions to our collection of vintage works will also be on display as well as our usual eclectic selection from gallery artists. An opening reception was held on Saturday, July 16th from 4-7pm.
Artists include Douglas Ballou, Paul Beattie, Warren Bellows, Dorr Bothwell, Holly Downing, Faralla, Morris Graves, Luke Park, Terry Holleman, Bernadette Howard, John Langley Howard, Robert P. McChesney, Yoshio Minomura, Nathan Oliveira, Isabelle Proust, Michael Ramos, Alejandro Salazar, Jim Spitzer, Inna Talantova, Seymour Tubis, Bambi Waterman, and many more..
