Welcome

July in the Gallery

July 2nd – 28th

Featured Artist – Anji Bartholf

Anji Bartholf is a textile artist who weaves contemporary abstract tapestries on a six foot floor loom. Her primary source of visual expression is rhythmic geometry, a practice that integrates supple fields of color in golden proportions inspired by the patterns and cycles in nature, architectural forms, the vibration of movement and stillness, music and the dream world. The medium of tapestry is a slow, rhythmic and meditative process and this imbues her weavings with a richness, fluidity, and depth unique to this art form.

August in the Gallery

Opening Reception

Friday, August 1st

6 P.M. to 8 P.M.

August Show open from July 30th to September 1st

The Arts Guild of Sonoma is excited to present the artwork of featured artists, K.C. Winston and Lyn Swan as well as many other Guild artists’ work during August’s exhibition with the Opening Reception being held on Friday August 1, from 6 pm to 8 pm in the gallery at 140 East Napa Street in Sonoma. Artists, friends and the whole community are invited to attend this lively social gathering. Local wine and food will be served.

In her paintings, Winston attempts to give physical form to the sensory and emotional experiences of landscape and built environments. She extracts, deconstructs, reconstructs and re-positions the visual and sensory elements by using form, color, texture, transparency, time and symbolic representations to convey her own perception of the subject.

Swan is a master of brilliant color in her porcelain ceramic work, which is at once fun, whimsical and functional. Each piece is hand built one at a time and each seems to inherit it’s own sense of style and personality. The pieces are designed to stand alone or work as a unique grouping of objects with distinct shapes, colors and patterns.
