More about our guest artists -

Diverse mixed media artist, CATHRYN COFFMAN, has been involved in art for over sixty years. A Fine Arts graduate of UCLA, she excels in oil painting, pastels, pen and ink drawings, charcoal, graphite, and watercolors. Born in Vancouver, Cathryn credits her Canadian grandfather with instilling in her a love of nature.  As a cattle rancher herself, for many years she raised, trained, and showed horses.  Her passion for animals, specifically horses, dogs, and cats, is evidenced in her beguiling artwork.  She also enjoys depicting historic buildings and landscapes.  Some of her award-winning work is displayed in local businesses: Valley Truck and Tractor, Maggie Capitano Insurance, and Jeannie Hawkins Pet Grooming in Marysville.  Cathryn has shown her work in The Brick Coffeehouse in Marysville, Visions Gallery in Yuba City, the Second Saturday Art Show in Sacramento, and has been awarded second place, twice, in Best of Show at the California State Fair.  Her work is now on display at the Marysville Art-O-Culture Gallery. Upon retiring from a teaching career spanning 28 years in Yuba City, Cathryn now travels, finding inspiration for her beautiful, realistic, and occasionally impressionistic, artwork.   

Local potter and gourd artist, DANARAE DOUB-REED, has been creating exquisite home decor and functional pottery pieces for years.  All of her high-fired pottery work is oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe, and many pieces can be used on cooktops, barbecues, and in fire pits.  Danarae’s artwork is simple yet elegant, incorporating natural products, such as deer antlers, cowhide, feathers, and natural stones.  Her rustic pottery and gourd birdhouses are particularly appealing. Danarae has won many awards and has exhibited in a number of galleries.  Notably, these include:  KVIE’s Art Auction Fundraiser for three years, Yuba College, the Davis Pottery Festival, and in Yuba City at Birds Unlimited, Visions Art Gallery, Sunsweet and Stephen's Farmhouse.  Currently, she is exhibiting at the Art-O-Culture Gallery in Marysville. She is also an active member of the Sutter County Fish and Game Commission.

Now Showing in The Theater Gallery


Our exhibit for the month of August will be the distinctive images of photographer ANN  DOUGLASS and the unusual metalworks of VICTOR and TONI HAZELHURST.  Enjoy complimentary wine and appetizers at the Artist Reception on Thursday, August 7 from 6pm to 8pm while you view the work of our guest artists!

Ann Douglass -

Since the late sixties ANN DOUGLASS has been immersed in the world of photography.  As a child in Carmel, she took her first photo of a cormorant perched on a boulder by the sea.  Later, she moved to New York and worked as Production Editor for Progressive Architecture magazine.

Over time, Ann worked with a number of New York magazines, notably Life, Newsweek, and Architectural Forum, and, as a freelance photographer, she traveled to Europe and Egypt. Portraits and architectural sites are of particular interest to her.  With a fine eye for composition and color, she creates enduring photographs, portraying the strength, beauty, and realism of her subjects. Ann is currently exhibiting at the Viewpoint Members Show in Sacramento and at the Yuba Harvest Cafe in Oregon House. In August she will present her recent work involving the portraits of actors shooting a film version of Julius Caesar. A rocky outcropping near Oroville provided the film location, and the surrounding stone formations are as much a part of the play as are the actors themselves.  An outstanding show!

Visit Ann's website.

Victor and Toni Hazelhurst -

For the last ten years, local artists VICTOR and TONI HAZELHURST have been creating spectacular metalworks of art.  Toni has a background in painting and photography, and Victor started out as a welder.  Together they create beautiful, functional art in the metal’s natural patina.  Working with recyclable metals, they make arbors, gates, wind chimes, garden bells, sculptures, and flat silhouettes.  The Hazelhursts won first place at the Yuba-Sutter Fair in the Recyclable Art Contest.  They are also a part of  “2110,” the 2nd Saturday Art Show in Sacramento. Other venues include:  “West Winds Shop” in Grass Valley, “Secret Garden Shop” in Carmel, the Monterey Pier, Sperbeck’s Nursery in Yuba City, and Art-O-Culture in Marysville.

Their unique designs are truly extraordinary!
