Three artists are showing their work during the month of June:
Mark Roller is a San Francisco artist showing his work, Spinal Column. His formidable drawing skills, honed by the many drawings of his wife, Colette Crutcher (also wonderfully accomplished artist), on a weekly, sometimes daily basis for almost thirty years, are the base on which he builds work in a variety of media.
Eva Strauss-Rosen has recently morphed her artistic direction from many years of crafting Judaic jewelry to the basics of graphite on paper. When viewing her large, detailed drawings of people, trees and architecture; carved bas-relief of the entire city of Jerusalem on a tiny gold necklace, it is hard to believe she has been doing this work for only a few years.
Robert Ross, who has been teaching figure drawing at the Mendocino Art Center for a number of years, completes the trio of talent in "Drawn to Perfection". While the human form is at the core of much of his work, he goes far beyond mere observation and recording, allowing glimpses into the worlds his models inhabit.
Meet featured quilt artist Laura Fogg at the Corner Gallery Ukiah reception.
Laura will have new work on display through June 30th. Her development of style and imagination continues to astound artists and quilters alike.
Laura has been a mural painter and seamstress for many years. The combination of these two media gives us her wonderful art quilting. She uses a "painterly" collage style in her art, with landscapes as her primary focus. Much of her inspiration comes from the beauty she enjoys on a daily basis in Mendocino County.
Laura's work has been shown both locally and nationally. Many pieces have been juried into major shows, and a number have been prizewinners. She recently won a grand prize for her entry into the Arts For The Parks Exhibit. Her work has been published in calendars, magazines, and books. She lectures and teaches art quilting classes throughout northern California.
