Sutter Creek Gallery hosts Watercolor Artist Judy Day as August's Featured Artist

Watercolor is the favorite medium of artist and teacher Judy Day, having explored a variety of media throughout her career. Most of the time she paints on traditional watercolor paper. More recently, Day has rendered paintings on newer surfaces such as Yupo and Aquabord, which provide a more fluid look. Her artwork, using all these surfaces, will be featured during the month of August at the Sutter Creek Gallery.

The artist loves the outdoors and has hiked and sketched in the high Sierras most of her life. “My paintings are inspired by my trips into the Sierras, vacations around the world, majestic landscapes, historical sites and almost everything in my neighborhood,” she explained. “I never know what will catch my eye and inspire me.” Often she paints on site in order to capture the light and shadows in the landscapes.

Day teaches art locally to both children and adults. During the summer she returns to her former Southern California home to direct a week-long children’s art camp. She has illustrated three educational children’s books as well as numerous posters and brochures. Each Christmas season, Day creates a three- by twelve-foot cut-paper banner for a church in No. Hollywood. She is the current president of the Amador County Artist Association.

Sutter Creek Gallery invites you to spend some time with Judy Day at a reception in her honor on Saturday, August 6, from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., as part of the region’s First Saturday Art Trek. She is one of 25 artists exhibiting at the gallery located in the heart of Sutter Creek at 35 Main Street. The gallery is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For additional information, call 209-267- 0228 or email
