ACAA July Meeting: Painter Kathy Souza - Wed July 10

Kathy Souza Will Demonstrate at July Meeting
Wednesday, July 10
Amador Senior Center
229 New York Ranch Road
Jackson, CA

Painter Kathy Souza is relatively new to painting but has found a technique and style that makes her work very popular. She will demonstrate this technique and show examples of her work at the next meeting on July 10th, held at the Amador Senior Center, after the regular business meeting which starts at 7pm, and the public is invited to attend.

Kathy considers herself a contemporary modernist artist creating impressionist landscapes and floral work using pastels, oils, and acrylics, often in combination. More of her work may be seen at the Sutter Creek Gallery.

July at Sutter Creek Gallery: Mixed Media Artist Wendy Ward

Wendy Ward, Sutter Creek Gallery’s featured artist for July, will be exhibiting a range of work at one of her last shows as her life heads in a new direction. Although she will remain at the gallery for a few more months, now is the time to view and possibly acquire one of her pieces.

Most of Ward’s paintings or mixed media pieces have several layers of colors and symbols that transform as the piece progresses. “Peace,” “sensuality” and “love” are some of the concepts she has worked with along with playful encounters with faeries and mermaids. She practices listening and allowing her connection to the image to continually direct the process.

At this exhibition, Ward will include original paintings along with mixed media collage and photography. Also on hand will be tote bags and purses created by Mary Nahhas, incorporating Ward’s designs. Prints of her work will also be available. Sutter Creek Gallery invites you to meet the artist at the Saturday, July 6 reception, starting at 2 p.m., to view her artwork exemplifying the theme “The soul speaks in images.”

Wendy Ward 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 photography, the gallery offers numerous affordable items including prints, cards, jewelry, pottery, as well as gourd, glass and fiber arts.  Framing services are also available.

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