Self-taught artist EMILY BIGGS attributes her passion for painting wildlife/nature images to attending a workshop in Montana twelve years ago, led by famed Belgian wildlife painter, Carl Brenders. His painting of wolves inspired her to try to emulate his style. Like Brenders’, Emily’s paintings are very detailed with a strong use of color. Her artwork is now a lifelong passion–always learning from the work of others. For the past five years, Emily has been teaching watercolor classes in Biggs and Yuba City. To sign up, simply contact her. She has had exhibits in Shasta, Chico, and at The Brick in Marysville. Although a resident of Biggs with a surname of “Biggs,” she actually has no relation to the founder of the community. Come and enjoy her elegant paintings and drawings!
The woodworking of RUSS Mc ANULTY is a pleasure to behold — fine furniture, wooden bowls, platters, and carvings. His rocking chairs are exquisite, having learned his craft from Sam Maloof himself, renowned rocking chair builder. Russ enjoys creating one-of-a-kind custom pieces built to last a lifetime or longer. He even makes his own tools, knives, and wood planes. He began learning the wood trade forty years ago from a retired cabinet maker, and then sought further training at the College of the Redwoods. His wood creations have been exhibited in galleries in Ukiah, Mendocino, and Sebastopol. Currently, he is teaching two days a week at the Masterpiece School of Furniture in Marysville. Don’t miss this opportunity to view his magnificent work!
The Theater Gallery is open every week, Wednesday through Saturday, from noon to 5:00 p.m. Come in and enter the drawing to win a jewelry piece each month. An Artist Reception is held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month, complete with complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres. Proceeds from The Theater Gallery benefit the Sutter Performing Arts Association’s effort to renovate the Sutter Theater, turning it into a viable community center.
