Name: Art Exhibit: Marble-ous

Event Description:
RECEPTION: JULY 8, 4 -7 PM: Meet the artists, Laura Roney and Carolyn Wilson, to learn about their inspiration, background and stylistic approaches. Sonoma County artist, Laura Roney, presents Marbel-ous, a collection of works in oil that focuses on marbles. Roney transforms these fun colorful balls of glass and paint into swirling designs of symmetry and structure. The artist is attracted to subject matter that is generally overlooked, often making them larger than life so all the delicate and intricate detail is available for all to see. Most of the artist’s still lifes explore reflective surfaces, like metal or glass, which adds dimension, creating a picture within a picture. “I like the idea that these paintings take simple marbles and turn them into large colorful orbs, raising them into art, “ enthused Roney. Viewing these paintings, one comes away with a renewed appreciation for those small objects in our world we often do not take the time to actually see. Roney has been in love with art her entire life, turning to serious painting in 1993. Alter losing her house to the 2017 wildfire, Roney misses most the momentos that made up their lives, those little objects collected that reflected their life experiences. This led to her heightened focus on still life subject matter. Roney received her Masters Degree from the Academy of Art University, San Francisco. Meet the Artist: Laura Roney will be hosting the gallery Saturday July 2 and Sunday, July 31, 11-6.
