About Philippe Gandiol:

Philippe Gandiol, an award winning Northern California painter, was born and raised in France and moved to California in his early 20’s. He has painted with oils for over 30 years. He pursued an independent program of study taking classes in France, San Francisco and Sacramento and with several renowned West Coast painters. Philippe likes to paint a variety of subjects like landscapes, cityscapes, still life and figures “en plein air” or in the studio. He works as much as possible from life, believing that only in life can he find the full range of light and color he wants in his paintings and the spirit and mood of his subject matter. He is actively involved with the California artist community, art events and fundraisers. He also participated in juried art festivals in Easton, Sonoma, Carmel, Napa and Los Gatos to name a few. He teaches privately out of his studio or in the outdoor and also offers painting workshops. As an instructor, Philippe is appreciated as a thorough, supportive and inspiring mentor.

June at Gallery 10: "Creativity Celebration"

Gallery 10 is open! Hurrah! We are celebrating our return to Life with a show of work done by our artists during the Stay-at-Home order.  The quarantine gave the artists time, a commodity often lacking in our busy lives, to develop new work, new paintings, new pottery, new jewelry.

Celebrate with us by visiting the gallery on 15 Eureka Street, Sutter Creek,  Thursday-Monday, 11-4.   We are following the guidelines to keep us all safe, so grab a squirt of hand sanitizer outside our door, limit yourselves to four at a time in the gallery, and if you visit after May 27, we will have our new collection in place. The show will hang all of June. Celebrate with us!

Sutter Creek Gallery Grand Opening Celebration - Sat Mar 28

Sutter Creek Gallery is celebrating! We’ve left behind our former location and are starting something new at 51 Main Street, Sutter Creek.  Saturday, March 28, will bring a Grand Opening celebration, but we expect to be open for business in mid-March. Our first show will feature a group exhibition entitled, appropriately enough, “New Beginnings,” which will continue through the month of April.

Members of the cooperative have submitted artwork on this theme, resulting in an eclectic mix of subjects, media and styles. Included are baby animals from photographer Michael Maloney and watercolorist JoAnn Ogburn.  Sunrises are represented by photographer Nancy Robinson and pastelist Sandra Campbell, with Vickie Chew adding to the landscapes with her depiction of a spring oak.  Sandy Morgan will show a necklace and earring set repurposed from a discarded silver-plate and copper tray.  Ceramic artist Marcus Tikotsky fashions clay into Raku using unexpected substances, such as dung, salt, and copper wire, to fire his pieces.  And that’s just a sampling of what will be displayed in our new gallery.

We invite you to our Grand Opening festivities on the 28th beginning at 1 p.m.  We’ll have bubbly drinks and other refreshments as well as live music by Gordon Rowland.  Besides original paintings and photography, the gallery offers many affordable items including prints, cards, jewelry, pottery, and gourd, glass and fiber arts.  Framing and matting services are also available. The gallery is open daily, except Tuesday, from 10 a.m. to 5 pm.  For additional information, call 209-267-0228, email suttercreekgallery@gmail.com or visit www.suttercreekgallery.com.  

Here's to new beginnings!
