More about our Featured Artists:
Originally from Los Angeles, MARILYN WARMEE has lived in Yuba-Sutter for thirty-five years. For fifteen of those, she taught seventh and eighth grade art at Tierra Buena School in Yuba City. A graduate of UC Berkeley with a degree in history and a minor in art history, she first became a full-time artist in the late 1980’s. She has a keen interest in architecture and was, for a time, an interior designer. As a volunteer with the Sutter Buttes Regional Land Trust Education Group, Marilyn has spent many hours guiding in, exploring and photographing the interior terrain of the Sutter Buttes, using her photographs to create marvelous oil pastel paintings of the landscapes in different seasons and weather conditions. Viewers will appreciate her surprising use of color and the way she conveys the feeling of the locale, giving her work a semi-impressionistic appeal. Concurrently with this show, she is one of thirteen artists participating in the “Our Good Earth: Art and Ag in the Valley” exhibit on view from September 12 - November 15 at the Sutter County Community Memorial Museum on Butte House Road in Yuba City. The Theater Gallery is delighted to exhibit her extraordinary show, “Into the Buttes: Scenes and Seasons” throughout October.
Marysville artist JANET TODD has been sculpting clay virtually all her life. In San Luis Obispo and San Jose she entered both county fairs several times and has won multiple awards for her work. In San Jose schools she presented workshops in art and music to children. Their creativity and eagerness to learn made the experience extremely worthwhile. After a career of forty years with the US Post Office, she now fills her free time creating mixed media sculptures. She prefers working with polymer clay, which allows her to insert found pieces, such as electronic spare parts and jewelry items, to desired effect in her work. Janet says that making art and being creative “keeps her sane.” To make her sculptures, she often uses geometry to help her increase the size of her pieces. As an artist, for inspiration she is open to everything and has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. She welcomes constructive criticism, and uses it as a vehicle to grow as an artist. In October she will exhibit a wide variety of pieces. Her work is also on display in the Marysville Art-O-Culture gallery. Don’t miss her whimsical and unique “Art with Attitude!”
