The month of August brings to Main Street Artists Gallery a visual treat in the form of landscapes by two exceptional artists — longtime members Sally Posner and Erik Weber.
Both artists are profoundly skilled in their mediums and in the last 10 years have shown us numerous examples of their personal artistic vision of Plumas County and beyond.
Sally’s current work reflects her travels last year throughout California, including Plumas County, the Pacific Coast, Lassen County and the Mohave Desert.
Her evocative plein air paintings capture the colorful beauty of these areas, featuring their flora and fauna with precision. Also included are small watercolors of desert flowers as well as a 3-foot by 4-foot landscape of a path along the California coast, titled “Beach Walk.”
Erik brings us his first exhibit in 60 years of landscapes in Indian Valley from his unique perspective as an observer of ranch life there. His photos, printed on canvas, capture the essence of that experience which gives us city folk a taste of that life: exciting, dangerous and a continuation of the wild west tradition.
Also appearing as guest artist will be San Francisco photographer and former guest at Main Street Artists Gallery, Tim Isom, who will present a variety of vintage and contemporary rock and roll photos and a series of magnificent Yosemite landscapes.
As a small town, Quincy is supremely fortunate to have so much talent in our midst and such wonderful monthly opportunities to appreciate it in two local galleries.
The opening will take place this Friday, Aug. 2, from 5 to 7 p.m.
Complimentary wine and appetizers will be served. The gallery is located at 436 Main St. in Quincy.
