Many artists are influenced at a young age and Leanne Kelly is no exception. Raised on the Onondaga reservation by her mother who worked in many mediums, including sewing, beading and basket weaving, Kelly learned the skills that she now includes in her work. Early on she began drawing and working with colored pencils, creating drawings of wildlife, botanicals and portraits of French mastiffs, later showing and breeding the dogs. In time she discovered gourds and began applying the skills she previously learned to create pieces ornamented with drawing, carving, wood burning, dying, bead inlay and basket weaving. Combining art with gourds she has found provides endless possibilities.
Kelly’s love of plants and nature was fostered by her mother, a naturalist and avid gardener. The artist’s pieces reflect this and show up in her other creative outlet, growing and propagating cactus and succulents. Kelly owns a small nursery and hybridizes brightly colored flowering cactus and cold hardy succulents. The plants she grows are inspirations for her art and are truly art themselves. In addition to her gourds, necklaces and colored pencil drawings, Kelly will display many of her cacti and enjoys discussing the plants and their properties.
Come meet Leanne Kelly at her reception on Saturday, October 5, beginning at 2 p.m. 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 photography, the gallery offers numerous affordable items including prints, cards, jewelry, pottery, as well as gourd, glass and fiber arts. Framing and layaway 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 firstname.lastname@example.org

Cathleen Berglund is the guest artist at Gallery 10, Sutter Creek, for October, 2019.
Cathleen thinks that she may have been carrying a sketch book and pen when she was born because she has rarely been without them for seven decades. She has filled dozens of sketch books and painted hundreds of uniquely recognizable works.
She studied art primarily with the renowned Maurice Lapp, to whom she owes her pronounced sense of color and balance. She has been a featured artist in shows locally, in Sonoma County, and in Washington State. Twenty five years ago, she joined with fellow artists to form Gallery 10 in Sutter Creek where she will be the featured artist in October. She has painted several new pieces expressly for this show.
Cathleen sketches what catches her eye, and if she likes the sketch, it usually becomes a painting: laundry dancing on the line, sleeping cats, a book left open on a chair, or a simple landscape. Interiors with untold stories are favorite subjects. She has published two small books featuring her Coyote poems, and has printed some of her favorite paintings as greeting cards.
A reception will be held in her honor on Saturday, October 5, 2-5 P.M. All are welcome! For more information, visit Gallery 10's web site at: www.gallery10.org
