OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, July 16th 4-7pm // EXHIBITION DATES: July 16th – October 15th, 2016

Our new 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. Please join us for an opening reception on Saturday, July 16th from 4-7pm. Refreshments and light bites will be served for your enjoyment. We hope to see you there!
