Please join us at Sofie Contemporary Arts in Calistoga for an Artists’ Talk on Friday, August 10th at 5:30 pm about the current exhibition, New Naturals: Jann Nunn, Bill Russell, Jonah Ward. Meet the three artists and hear each of them discuss their work, including their choice of media, approach, process and inherent concepts. There will also be a Q&A and a Reception will follow.
Using natural, recycled, common and unexpected media, these three Bay Area artists create images that simultaneously evoke a sense of the known and unknown, the real and imagined. Dedicated to innovation of materials and excellence of technique, Nunn, Russell and Ward reveal the source of their intermingled media and crafting in surprising ways. Raw wood, molten glass-burned surfaces, stacks of archival microprint paper, and even paper wasp nests, are fused into works that at first defy comprehension of their origin. With an understated, almost neutral palette, a unique perspective on early 21st Century art-making is evident in this exceptional and unusual collection of paintings, collages and sculptures that range conceptually from the playful to the mythological and inspirational.
The gallery is located at 1407 Lincoln Ave., Calistoga. For more information contact us at 707-942-4231 or by email: Gallery Manager, Scott Sofie: firstname.lastname@example.org Gallery Director, Jan Sofie: email@example.com
