Main Street Artists Gallery presents “A Well-Watered Year,” a collection of juicy paintings by Lucinda Wood. Enjoy her opening reception, with wine and appetizers, on Friday, Nov. 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Main Street Artists Gallery.
Lucinda describes this collection as “a celebration of the bountiful snow and rainfall we were blessed with this year, and the beauty it brought us.” All but four paintings were done on location, most of them close to Quincy.
To find her subjects Lucinda often hikes, carrying her watercolor supplies in a backpack. “I love to paint in wild, beautiful places,” she says. As an outdoor enthusiast, Lucinda has a foot in both the physical, and creative aspect of her terrain. Whether she is skiing through freshly fallen pristine snow or balanced precariously on a high rock painting the tumultuous water below, she is completely immersed.
Lucinda’s show chronicles a year absent of drought. Her collection represents, in her words, “boisterous waterfalls in gorges that are normally quiet by mid-summer, lakes and rivers brimming over with water and life. I painted a blizzard out my dining room window and from the truck I painted cliffs edged with snow. I painted Mountain Quail that only come to our home when the snow is very deep. There were blue skies to paint all summer without smoke! So, this show is a kiss toward heaven, with my thanks!” she said.
Enjoy an evening of gratitude for this year of abundance with Lucinda Wood and Main Street Artists Gallery members. Experience the colors and vibrancy of the natural beauty which surround us in the Lost Sierra. Take home a slice of that to grace your walls as we enter the halls of deep winter.
A wine and appetizers reception will be held to honor Lucinda and other artists at the gallery at 436 Main Street, Quincy. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Contact Main Street Artists Gallery at 530-283-1909.
