What’s love got to do with it?

North Coast Artists Guild in a special showing of Mixed Media.

Love in all its various forms is undoubtedly the most driving force in human behavior. And Love is one of the most common themes in the creative arts – countless poems, operas, songs, sculptures, paintings, have been created throughout human history in every era and culture.

The focus of this show is to present artists’ interpretations of what Love is to them in whatever way individual artists wishes to approach it: personally, emotionally, intellectually, religiously, figuratively, conceptually, literally, abstractly, subconsciously, comically, tragically, satirically or even absurdly.

The Gualala Arts Center, located at 46501 Old State Highway in Gualala, CA, is open weekdays 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and weekends from noon to 4:00 p.m., and serves the coastal communities of Northern Sonoma & Southern Mendocino Counties.

BEYOND THE SELFIE - GUALALA ARTS CENTER

Opening Reception Friday, April 1, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.; Exhibit remains through April 24, 2016

By now, most of us are familiar with the term “selfie” — the self-portrait typically taken with an iPhone, Smartphone or other multifunctional digital device.

The availability, affordability, and multi-functionality of these digital devices has shifted the direction of photography. iPhoneography, SmartPhone Photgraphy or Mobigraphy — the terms used for photographs taken with digital devices — is now responsible for an estimated 48% of photographs produced. Coupled with the availability of “Photoshopping” applications, the artistic expression of stunning imagery has taken us well “Beyond the Selfie.” For this show artists are challenged to create fine art starting with a photograph taken with an iPhone, Smartphone or other multifunctional digital device.

Barbara Sapienza Painting & Susan Shaddick Sculpture & Clay

Barbara Sapienza and Susan Shaddick

Dolphin Gallery Exhibit

 

Opening Reception Saturday, February 6, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Exhibit remains through March 2

Barbara Sapienza

For Barbara Sapienza, creating a painting is about movement that communicates a deeper understanding for the viewer. She says, “Each brush stroke is an expression of being in the present moment.” One stroke informs the next until the final product appears, an image that bonds the viewer and artist in a single experience.

Susan Shaddick

 The Japanese concept of wabi-sabi is a focus for the exhibition by artist Susan Shaddick at the Dolphin Gallery, opening in February 2016. The term wabi-sabi developed from Buddhism and essentially states that nothing is perfect, nothing is complete and nothing is permanent. As a long-time student of meditation and an artist who has worked with natural materials and minimal processes, Susan feels that this concept describes her work most clearly.

Dolphin Gallery is located at:
39225 Highway 1 in downtown Gualala, CA,
behind the post office on the south side.

Open Thursday – Monday (closed Tuesday – Wednesday)
10am – 5pm (closes at 4pm January-March).

SURREALISM - GUALALA ARTS CENTER

Opening Reception: Friday, February 5, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Exhibit remains through February 28, 2016

Surrealism, meta-realism, beyond-realism, these all mean about the same thing. The idea is to start with reality, look into our minds and go beyond it. In concrete terms, the objective is to take visual images beyond reality, maybe into the subconscious mind, maybe to a possible future.
