Laurie Williams is the Featured Artist at Sutter Creek Gallery in June

Those who love art and animals will not want to miss Laurie Williams’ June show at the Sutter Creek Gallery.  The show features paintings and sculptures of a variety of animal figures.  In her acrylic paintings, animals—both wild and domestic—are depicted realistically but often against abstract backgrounds that are vividly colored and patterned.  Williams’ show will open on Saturday, June 3, with an Artists Reception starting at 2 p.m. 

Williams grew up on a ranch where she observed domestic and wild animals, which became the focus of her work.  “Since early childhood I have loved animals,” she said, “and have made them the subject of my paintings and sculptures.”  In college, Williams studied art at Sonoma and Humboldt State Universities as well as the San Francisco Art Institute.  The artists that most inspire her work are the great colorists:  Gauguin, Van Gogh, the Fauves and the German expressionists.  Their influence is evident in her use of bold colors to portray her subjects.

Sutter Creek Gallery invites you to meet Laurie Williams at the June 3 reception in her honor and to view her exciting and unique creations. She is one of the many local artists exhibiting at the cooperative located in the heart of Sutter Creek at 35 Main Street.  Besides original paintings and photographs, Sutter Creek Gallery offers many affordable items including prints, cards, jewelry, ceramics, gourds and fiber arts.

The gallery is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 1 a.m. to 6 p.m.  For additional information, call 209-267-0228, email or visit
