DECEMBER EXHIBIT: MERRY AND BRIGHT
EXHIBIT DATES: November 21 – January 1, 2023
RECEPTION/HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE: DECEMBER 3, 2022, 11am to 6pm: Join in to meet the artists and cheer the season and the show. Holiday goodies, small treats and hors d’oeuvres will be served.
Sonoma County artists, Linda Barretta, Beverly Bird, Marsha Connell, Gail Morgan, Jo Tobin-Charleston, Tosya Shore, Ron Sumner, Carolyn Wilson, present Merry and Bright, a collection of works that celebrates the season through joyful colors and iconic themes. The red cardinal in Wilson’s “Winter Messenger” complements the snowy green leaf in “Snowfall,” a monoprint by Gail Morgan. The reds and greens with gold accents in these works, whether a floral display, landscape or a still life, bring a cheery note to the season. Gold accents light up the pasture in Barretta’s “Franz Valley Field.” Blue balls create a jazzy accent to the red flowers in Shore’s watercolor, “Amaryllis On My Mind.” One can’t help but smile at Sumner’s watercolor “Twas Christmas Time in the Vineyard,” where a gnarly old grapevine seems to dance with joy regaled in brightly colored ornaments. What a perfect way to celebrate the holidays in Sonoma wine country.
The Staircase Showcase on the stairway features consignment artist offerings, many under $50.
