A third generation artist, Willow began exhibiting her paintings when she was 12 years old at the New York Art Expo and in Nevada City, California. She is a highly collected wine-country artist who loves to paint reflections from glassware in the bold, wine themed paintings that she is known for.
Artist Reception: Sunday, September 9th, 2 - 5pm
The show runs September 3rd - 30th.
Consignment Artists, Naomi Lasley and Karen Norton, are new to Upstairs art gallery.
Naomi Lasley - Naomi taught ceramics for 25 years in Santa Rosa City Schools. Since her retirement she works in her Sebastopol art studio and she formed Clayamity, a group of former art students and professional artists. Her work at UAG is pit-fired pots and raku ceramics.
Karen Norton, a potter for over 40 years uses a variety of clays, glazes and firing methods to create her hand built platters. She says her designs are land, sea and sky scapes that take the viewer to unimagined places where tranquility and vitality merge into cohesive wholeness.
Also featured in September is Bill Gittins, a consummate and prolific oil painter of Sonoma County landmarks, vineyards and places of quiet beauty. Bill’s paintings are widely exhibited in private and permanent collections, including Sutter Hospital. Both Bill and Willow are participating artists in the Art Trails open studios coming up in October.
