Inspired, Imagined, Inquiring. Work From Paula Christen, Marcy Stamper & Linda Wick
May 31-July 24; Reception, Jun 3, 5-7pm, 2017
In June and July, three members of the Winthrop Gallery artists cooperative will show a selection of their work that demonstrates how they are inspired by the world around them. “Inspiration comes easy here,” says watercolor artist Paula Christen. “We all have experienced that instant love affair with the surrounding landscape but after time we don’t really “see” it anymore. It becomes the framework for our daily lives. This collection is about remembering to see and celebrate the everyday beauty found in our backyards and along those backroads.”
Photographer Marcy Stamper says, “I have always been interested in the intersection between the beauty of the natural world and human expression, seen both in intentional acts of creativity and in inadvertent imprints on the landscape. This work continues that exploration.”
“Fossils are my favorite stones to play with,” says jewelry artist Linda Wick. “I feel it’s unique that fossils are found in many high desert areas which were once oceans. Using silver, fossils, carved faces and colorful stones my desire is to invite people to explore my jewelry as a mode of satisfied expression. Jewelry is quiet, demanding, bold, supportive, amazing …..and great fun!”
