Patti Fulton and Ginni Murray will be sharing the Featured Artist show at Gallery 10 during the month of June. Both artists are currently exhibiting their work at the gallery, and as friends, chose to combine their talents and create a blockbuster presentation for all to see.
Patti Fulton uses graphite and colored pencil to create her magnificent drawings. Drawing has always been Patti’s epithet in art. Her background is in medical illustration for UCSD and Scripps Research in La Jolla, CA, for 25 years. When Patti moved to the foothills in 2018, she became a graphic designer in the local wine industry. With the onset of Covid, Patti found herself with time to pursue her interest in drawing, and developed the technique she now shows in her drawings of faces and animals. She’s always been fascinated by the story the lines in someone’s face tell, from the inside out.
Ginni Murray Shotwell is a formally trained psychotherapist who took up watercolors during a particularly stressful time in her life. Ginni has discovered that the words of Thomas Merton resonate with her: “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” In Ginni’s work as a psychotherapist, she has been immersed in the inner work of individuals emotionally, physically and spiritually. In her work with watercolor, she has found the medium that bridges her personal enthusiasm for living and playing in nature with her work as a psychotherapist.
Gallery 10 is proud to introduce these two artists to our foothill community. Come say hello and share a bite to eat with Patti and Ginni at the reception being held on Saturday, June 4, 2-5 P.M. at Gallery 10, 15 Eureka St., Sutter Creek. The show will hang throughout the month of June.
