Join us for an Artist's Reception featuring the works of Assemblage Artist Rebeca Trevino and Oil Painter Jeff Watts.
“. . . . Creatures Big and Small” through January 27 at the Sebastopol Gallery celebrating a decade of art and community. Artist's Reception for ". . . Creatures Big and Small,” will be Saturday, December 9th, from 4–6PM at Sebastopol Gallery, 150 N Main Street, Sebastopol, CA 95472 Rebeca is an assemblage artist who combines objects in unexpected ways. “I think of myself as a whisperer of inanimate objects,” she says. “I often feel true compassion for things that are damaged or thrown away. I see potential in things that are broken, and find beauty in rust and corrosion.” In her work, Rebeca takes a narrative path: “I use these found objects to tell a story, much like a writer uses words. The finished art piece becomes the storyteller, the dream interpreter and memory prod.”
Jeff is a self-taught painter who works in oils. His subjects are frequently animals, and, he notes, “Whether it’s an animal, person or a flower, I consider all of my works to be portraits.” Jeff takes a classical approach to painting, as well: “I’m inspired by the techniques of the old masters and like to take advantage of the movement of the paint and the visible brush marks. While I strive for a sense of realism in my paintings, I always want the viewer to know they are looking at a painting.
