Having lived overseas in France, England, Germany, and Japan as a child, MICOLA HOUSTON found that experiencing life in different cultures enhanced his gift of keen observation. A graduate of WheatlandHigh School, Micola attended UC Davis, earning a degree in Studio Art. From there he attended graduate school in Interdisciplinary Art at San Francisco State University. He spent twenty years in Maui, Hawaii, where his interest spread from pen and ink watercolor drawings and acrylic painting to clay sculpture. His artwork has a dynamic quality, inspiring viewers to look beyond the colors and into the rhythmic patterns for meaning. He employs bold colors and abstract images which make his work interesting and visually pleasing. Micola’s latest passion is endeavoring to understand the culture of indigenous people, using their symbols and colors for inspiration. In describing his art, Micola muses that he is “in tune with nature and the spirit of life.” Come see for yourself and enjoy his captivating show in March.
