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.”
