Venetian Gourd”
clay painting,

Jennifer Alpaugh paints large abstract flowers, landscapes, and portraits of friends and family. In 2003, she received an Award of Excellence from the Art Guild of Pacifica.

Annie Margaret Arrasmith draws inspiration from ancient textiles, especially Persian kilims and Turkish rugs. She works primarily in a clay monotype process in which the paint is applied to the surface of an unfired leather-hard stoneware plate and then lifted by hand onto an archival spun-fiber matrix.

Susan Bistline explores everyday connections to the sacred through art and writing. Using found objects and color, she creates altars and boxes that reflect universal spirituality. Susan’s work draws from several influences including a childhood spent among the vivid colors of Mexico, a Buddhist philosophy, a love of words, and a freedom that comes to a woman in the afternoon of her life.

Tama Blough produces work that studies natural forms. Her work is often whimsical, with a darker humor beneath the surface.

Kathy Dybeck combines monotype and collographic printmaking with mixed media. She uses handmade paper, transparencies, and cyanotypes, along with textiles, wire, and thread. Kathy was an artist at the Bioregional Residency at U.C. Davis where she made over 100 monotypes of plants from Cobb Mountain in Lake County, many on paper made from regional plants.

Melinda Lightfoot’s background is in language, literature, and psychology. She uses color both symbolically and emotionally, often painting from dreams.

Gallery hours are 1:00pm to 5:00pm Friday, Saturday & Sunday. The Sanchez Art Center is always free and open to the public. For more information call 650.355.1894.
