The October opening reception at the Coast Highway Art Collective in Point Arena features the works of local artist, Andrea Allen, Chinese Brush artist, and Peter Bailey, jewelry artist. The opening reception is on Saturday, Oct. 2 from noon to 5 p.m. Guests and staff are required to wear face masks during the event.
“Ancient Chinese symbolism and philosophy influence my work,” explains Allen “enhancing the feeling of vital energy and serenity. The inherent effect is for the viewer to be effortlessly invited into each painting, to experience a peaceful balance and harmony in a timeless continuum.
Bailey says he loves to emphasize the sculptural and sensual aspects of jewelry making while at the same time creating a balance between a beautiful gemstone and a complimentary design. Much of his work incorporates images from nature that inspires him and gives him a sense of wonder.
