March brings EMILY BROWN’s vibrant watercolor and acrylic portraits, and amazing painted mannequin heads by 3D artist, KRISSY PAULUCCI. A truly unusual show!


EMILY BROWN is a young, up-and-coming local artist, and a recent graduate of the San Francisco Academy of Art University. Previously, she attended Sutter Union High School and Yuba College. While at Yuba College she was greatly influenced by her art teachers, Sara Sealander and Glenn Husted. An artist all her life, Emily was first introduced to art and taught by her grandmother, artist Gloria Walchesky. Using bright colors in her washes and waterpainting, Emily creates lifelike portraits of people, animals, and pets. She is currently open to doing portrait commission work. While her passion is to become a children’s book illustrator, she also enjoys fine art painting. In 2011, she received a summer art scholarship to study at AAU. She now has several paintings at the Children’s Creativity Museum in San Francisco. To see her children’s book illustrations and fine art, visit her website at www.emilybrownillustrations.com


KRISSY PAULUCCI's  3D mannequin heads are colorful and exotic in their own right but her pieces “come to life” when viewed through 3D glasses (provided to attendees). Krissy observes, “You’ve never seen anything like it! It’s new, funky, cool, and innovative.” Having taught art to lots of different grade levels and, most recently, at Marysville Charter Academy of the Arts, Krissy is continually open to new and intriguing ideas. First, she investigates the idea, does research, and then puts her own artistic spin on it. Voila! 3D Mannequin Head Painting. The process, in her mind, derives from “pointillism” paintings created by using many tiny dots. When viewed from different angles and distances, some colors become predominant and others recede into the background. It’s like a 3D effect, and that is what she achieves, as well, in her painted figures. She is fond of using quotations or sayings, and then matching her artwork to their meanings. She begins by painting a black background, and then introduces a series of dots in the primary colors of red, yellow, and blue. Just as in pointillism, these colors work best in achieving the desired 3D effect. The result is quite remarkable. Krissy’s award-winning work has been shown at past Yuba-Sutter Fair events. Recently, her striking exhibit was on view at the Yuba-Sutter Art Gallery in Marysville.


Also on exhibit will be the work of local artists:
Luisa G. Leger, Jan Frink, D.Ellen Day, Paul Spoto, and Rosalynd Bliss. 


Exhibits change every month, and visitors are invited to enter a free drawing for a custom jewelry item.



 

Coming to The Theater Gallery in April - 


alt

Visit the Gallery for our Artist Reception on Thursday, April 2nd from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  Meet the artists, view the new exhibition and enjoy complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres.


Enter the world of your own imagination as you view The Theater Gallery's April exhibit. Featured are intricate and enchanting “heart-full” paintings by YANNA BAT ADAM and light-hearted yet thought-provoking sculptures by MICHAEL E. ANGELL. Truly an eye-pleasing visual delight!


Originally trained as a classical flautist in Israel, YANNA  BAT ADAM has been involved in mixed media art for the last thirty years, often combining her musical talent with her beguiling artwork. An author as well, she has published a book entitled Consciously Loving My Neighbor As I Love Myself, available on Amazon. She paints colorful, intriguing, mixed media images that are three-dimensional and layered. She also uses phosphorescent paint in some pieces which glow in the dark, leaving a lingering image of the main message. Yanna calls herself a “Heartist,” a person who follows her Heart. But there is more to it than that. It is a way of creating art that inspires people to reach a higher nourishing emotional state--Heart appeal, perhaps. This is difficult to do, so she has founded a School for Conscious art at www.TheSchooloftheHeartist.com. Yanna endeavors to support artists from all disciplines to find their authentic emotional creative source, inspiring humanity to experience the highest potential, which is still dormant.


Multi-talented MICHAEL E. ANGELL will amaze you with his intricate sculptures of a magical fairytale world. His unique, imaginative work involves a lot of symbolism and mythology. He begins by sculpting a character--never seen before--and then writes a story about it, in a sense, authenticating its existence. The result is to arouse a sense of wonder and curiosity in the viewer. Writing is another of Michael’s talents. He has published two books online, a poetry collection, and a novel on LuLu. His website is www.michaelangell.com. Accompanying his smaller fairyland creatures will be his classical bronzes, “Zeus” and “Child Neptune.” Trained in Fine Arts, with a B.F.A. from Virginia Commonwealth University and an M.F.A. from Tulane University, Michael asserts that “art is a symbol of timelessness.” It brings a sense of culture with it, and endures and pleases the viewer without regard to time or place. His playful and inspiring figures appeal to the child in all of us and remind us that magic is still alive and well in the world.


Also on exhibit will be the work of local artists:
Luisa G. Leger, Jan Frink, D.Ellen Day, Paul Spoto, and Rosalynd Bliss. 


Exhibits change every month, and visitors are invited to enter a free drawing for a custom jewelry item.
