June 1, 2023 through July 31, 2023

Virtual ZOOM reception: Sunday, June 11 at 5pm PDT

JUROR:  Nancy Roberts. Nancy is known for her bold color, dynamic design and inventive, slightly quirky style. Thinking of reality as just a jumping-off point, she loves allowing each new painting to emerge and transform, revealing hidden secrets with its own language. Her crisp lines and joyful color put a fresh new spin on the landscape tradition.

Nancy is an avid plein air painter, art instructor, art event organizer and retired architect based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work has garnered many awards and is included in public and private collections across the country.  https://www.nancyrobertsstudio.com/

I met this woman in a small village in China near The Great Wall. She was sitting on the walkway outside her home & gestured to me to sit & visit with her. She offered me her cushion, making herself much less comfortable. Here, she is a figure of reverence, possessing the strength & righteousness.

Symbiosis

Paper on canvas

30 in x 48 in x 1.5 in

Trees and humans are interconnected on a deep level. The definition of Symbiosis is an interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both. One side of the relationship has skewed the balance dramatically. We must correct it.

Looking For The Yes

HONORABLE MENTION

Paper on canvas

20 in x 20 in x 1.5 in

Has anyone noticed that yes seems further away on the horizon than no? No is so much bigger and louder. Yes is much harder to find and so quiet. But, once it IS found, the gratification is profound. I create my images by drawing with paper. I keep my work graphic and simple.
