Welcome

November in the Gallery

Opening Reception

Friday, November 7th,  6 to 8 P.M.

Featured Artist:  Dee Dushkes

In her high school yearbook, one classmate wrote: “Keep up the way you are and they’re bound to put you away sooner or later.”  She’s kept up with her off beat look at the world and is still free on her own recognizance.

She uses portraiture not to define the individual but to create more of a mystique, drawing the viewer in from the many subtleties derived from a subject’s face.

Using vintage and old family photos, she pieces together a thoughtful world of social commentary by the use of additional elements within the composition.

October in The Gallery

Featured Artist:  Ruby Newman

The Arts Guild of Sonoma is excited to showcase the artwork of featured artist Ruby Newman as well as works by Guild artists during October’s exhibition. Please join us at the reception on October 5th, 6:00 to 8:00 pm in the gallery at 140 East Napa Street in Sonoma. Artists, friends and the community are invited to attend this lively social gathering. Local wine and snacks will be served. The show runs the entire month of October.

Newman works in a variety of mediums on canvas, paper and prepared panels. She approaches her work with a vibrant color palette, energetic rhythm, and an intuitive response to the subject through he combination of brush strokes and composition. Whether the inspiration comes from her inner mind, the landscape, or people, the work takes on it’s own spirit and life. The intent is to transmit a sense of harmonious energy and peace to its viewers. Her work can be viewed at www.rubynewman.com.
