Now showing in The Theater Gallery throughout April - 


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 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 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.


Coming to The Theater Gallery in May -


Visit the Gallery for our Artist Reception on Thursday, May 7th from 6:00 to 8:00pm.  Meet the artists, view the new exhibition and enjoy complimentary beverages and hors d’oeuvres.

May brings “Bliss” to The Theater Gallery in Yuba City all month long.

The gallery proudly presents the talents of father, mother, and daughter in this unique and diverse art exhibit. RICK BLISS is an outdoor photographer. ROZ BLISS is the gallery jewelry artist. Daughter LIZ BLISS is a trained artist specializing in drawing, acrylic and oil painting. Come and see what this creative family has on view this month!

A gifted photographer, influenced by America’s great landscape artists, RICK BLISS is rarely without his camera. He concentrates on capturing the light in his work, making his landscape photography truly spectacular to view. Some of his work has an “other-worldly” aspect to it, while still appearing extremely realistic. With an eye for natural beauty and structure, Rick’s compositions are dramatic and breathtaking. He has been taking photographs for over fifty years, keeping up with the latest technology, and printing his own images of varying sizes. It is his passion. Last November his wildlife photography was featured in the gallery’s exhibition during the Swan Festival. 

By comparison, his wife ROZ BLISS has been making jewelry for a relatively short time, about eight years. Although a relative newcomer to the arts, she strives to create wearable art that is unique yet has a quality of simple elegance. Her brand is called “Stelle” which in Italian means “stars.” Being of Italian descent and having lived and traveled in Italy many times, she plans to showcase pieces with Murano glass from Venice and other creations with a distinctive European flair. Roz has been one of The Theater Gallery’s five Resident Artists for over a year. She enjoys making one of a kind pieces and custom jewelry.

LIZ BLISS became interested in art at a young age, seeking to capture reality in her drawings. While at Sutter High School, she was greatly influenced and encouraged by art instructor, Drew Sallee (next month’s featured artist.) Over time, Liz’s talent progressed to creating images of places accessible only in her imagination. She enjoys constructing them in such a way as to transport the viewer inside her work. Another artistic goal of hers is to convey a particular feeling or idea through her art. She achieves this using bold, bright colors and contrasts as tools to transmit messages and to spirit away viewers to imaginative, never-before-seen places. A UC Davis graduate with a degree in Art Studio, Liz has received many honors and awards for her impressive and captivating artwork.
