Event Description:
RECEPTION: Saturday, April 6, 2024: 4 - 6 PM: Join artists Tosya Shore and Carolyn Wilson to celebrate the show. Refreshments will be served. Sonoma County artist, Tosya Shore, presents People Who Need People, a collection of watercolor paintings that capture the meaningful moments in a person’s life. Each painting elicits a visceral response as the artist’s subjects show a range of emotions from peaceful contemplation to solemnity to happy abandon. Bold color, abstract shapes and intriguing textures interact to heighten the intensity of each work. Wildly swirling her flowing skirts, “Lady in Red,” expresses joyful excitement. We share in a more peaceful moment In “Watching the Tide Roll In.” Mid sequence “Balancing Act” calls the viewer to join the flow of the dance. Explaining the focus of this collection, Shore commented: “I am a people person and love connecting with them.” Not just boring portraits, Shore’s works connect with the viewer like vignettes of the human condition. Over twenty years ago, Shore took up watercolor painting and it became her passion. Her work is uniquely colorful and bold, which she highlights by sealing her pieces, so they do not have to be framed under glass. A quarter of Shore’s profit from sale of her work in contributed to charity – this year she has chosen the Women’s Recovery Center. Shore has been a member of the Upstairs Art Gallery for four years and exhibited in the region, including participation in the Sebastopol Center for the Arts Open Studio program. Meet the Artist: Shore will be hosting the Gallery April 3 and 16, 2024 11 am to 6 pm.
