Featured Artist - Barbara Kelley

Once every other month, we install a new exhibition featuring the work of a local artist. Please stop by the shop or join us for one of the artist receptions to see the show.

USHER GALLERY • 1 Petaluma Blvd North in the HEART of Petaluma!

Ink & Oil

This month we are excited to show the artwork of BARBARA KELLEY. Her show "Ink and Oil: Prints & Paintings by Barbara Kelley" will be on view from January 30 through March 24.

Embedded in Barbara’s work is a visual language that is both evocative and straightforward, and creates a sense of meditative inner calm. Her images provide a safe haven to share experiences and memories.

Barbara views paintings and prints using Ink or Oil as metaphors. They represent the shared experiences and memories of our journeys to new environments, through intellectual, psychological and physical development, growth and decline, death and the afterlife. Oftentimes, a vessel, like a canoe, is there for the journey.

OPENING RECEPTION
Saturday, February 10 • 5 to 8pm

CLOSING RECEPTION
Sunday, March 17 • 2 to 5pm
