Nature’s Symphony: Landscapes and Birds in Concert
Paintings by Reta Rickmers and Jamie Albertie
July 9 - August 13, 2023
Artists Reception: Friday, July 21, 5-7PM
Rickmers' work is a contrast of realistic images juxtaposed against abstract backgrounds of color, patterns, and textures. Subjects are closely observed and draw from her personal experiences and travels. They include birds, doors from Yucatan and Europe, guitars, and empty landscapes adorned with birds on wires, sometimes a feeling of nostalgia.
Working from his photos, Albertie's background as a photographer directly influences his approach to his art. His aim is to capture the landscape in different times of day and seasons. In this way, he is influenced by the Impressionists. His work showcases the beauty of northern California.
