Sutter Creek Gallery presents Fiddletown artist Wendy Rogers in January

Fiddletown artist Wendy Rogers will be featured in January at Sutter Creek Gallery. Rogers will be displaying her landscape work in watercolor and acrylic. Many of the newest pieces are acrylic.

“It has been fun using what I have learned through the years painting almost exclusively in watercolors to explore a ‘new’ medium," Rogers says. "I love the textures and colors. The hardest part has been getting used to new brushes!"

Rogers is now working from a studio space under the Sutter Creek Gallery. "It is a nice-sized space, next to Sutter Creek. When the windows are open, you can hear the creek, the birds and wildlife that call it home. It a peace-filled place to paint." Creekside Studio is also used for art classes and workshops. More information is available at Sutter Creek Gallery.

The artist is exploring new ways to express her love for the beauty of Nature. "I want to share art that is soul-filling.  I want people to feel the goodness and light of it—to feel the joy I felt while creating it!"  What is next for her in 2017? "Larger landscapes. I have wanted to paint some very large pieces, and some large abstract watercolors. 2017 is going to be FUN!"

More of Rogers' work can be viewed on her webpage www.fiddlesongstudio.com.

Come and meet the artist at the reception on January 7 from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. Wine and delicious refreshments will be served. Sutter Creek Gallery is a cooperative of local artists located in the heart of Sutter Creek at 35 Main Street. With the change in the season, the gallery will have new hours and be open daily, except Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  For additional information, call 209-267-0228, email suttercreekgallery@gmail.com, or visit www.suttercreekgallery.com.
