The Artist's Studio in the Foothills Gallery & Visual Arts Center is proud to present its Winter Resident Artist Show, featuring twenty five artists, February 5th - March 5th, with an opening reception on February 12th from 5-8pm.
Now home to an astounding forty resident artists, each with private or shared studio spaces, residents create works in a range of mediums... painting, drawing, printmaking, bronze, concrete and ceramic sculpture, pottery, mosaics, and various forms of multimedia.
The center is proud to announce fifteen new residents joining in just the past two months! New artists... Roseanne Burke, an oil painter best known for her sensitive colorful paintings of local scenes, Lily Russo, a new to the area mosaic artist, known for her dazzling two dimensional pictorial works, Denise Wey and Claudia Jeffers, from the locally known women ceramic artists group - The Clay Babes, John Hughes, a local ceramicist, and ten painters from the Plein-Air Painters of Nevada County - Odette Brush, Sandra Delong, Elizabeth Donnelly, Jan Flemming, Warren Knox, Penelope Partch, Daniel Peck, Jim Stettler, Richard Stone, and Patricia Sussberg... most of whom will be participating in the Winter Resident Show, along with several of the center's long time residents.
Come experience the buzz, and collective creative spirit, of this very special community of artists in their very own gallery and visual arts center! This show exemplifies the natural synergy and momentum created when artists come together to inspire and be inspired! The gallery shows alone are such a huge motivator for the artists here. That, combined with the daily inspiration and support provided by each of the residents, is what brings about the spirited energy of this art haven!
