The Essence of Spirit - Artist Reception
In February and March, Sebastopol Gallery’s featured member artists are jeweler Michelle Hoting and painter Susan St. Thomas. Their exhibit, “The Essence of Spirit,” will be on display Jan. 29 through March 25.
The artists each have a unique way of expressing how nature speaks to them.
Michelle Hoting finds her inspiration in the forms of trees and leaves, flowers and buds. Giving their spirit and shape permanence by sculpting in recycled silver, copper and steel and utilizing various metalsmithing techniques, Hoting works to impart a feeling of movement and life.
The divinely inspired collection of mixed-media works by Susan St. Thomas is comprised of diverse abstract interpretations of the unseen realms of nature. Moved by the vast space beyond earth and the beauty of the unexplored, Susan creates layered acrylic and watercolor paintings to represent our multi-dimensional world.
Meet the artists at a reception on Saturday, Feb. 10, featuring classical guitar by Zachary Seifert-Ponce. See the fine art and crafts by 15 local artists at Sebastopol Gallery, open daily 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
