Willits Center for the Arts presents paintings and Jewelry
The Willits Center for the Arts (WCA) presents paintings by Salvador Andrade and Nancy Collins.
Salvador’s show was in March of 2020 and had to be closed because of the pandemic. He is back two years later with new works and new looks. His portraits of women range in size from 48” to an incredible six feet. His remarkable lines and colors combine to make thought-provoking faces of women in different and curious expressions.
Nancy Collins’s stunning watercolors are usually painted with warm colors toward the center of the painting and cooler colors around the parameters, giving the illusion of a glow. Nancy teaches her technique around Mendocino, and she will be holding classes at the WCA in June this year.
Collin’s work and Andrades’ will be on view at the Art Center from the 29th of April through May 22nd. Join them for the opening reception for the artists Saturday, April 30th, between 6 and 9 pm.
This May the Willits Center for the Arts Gift Shop Gallery is featuring the Steampunk Jewelry of coastal resident Annette Jarvie. Annette describes her unique work this way:
“My work is a mash-up of the Victorian Age of Invention, Futuristic Punk Rock, and Steampunk. My pieces incorporate fine metals, salvage, Victorian antiques and found objects, rolling up American culture into a tiny package.”
