Natural Rhythm will feature the paintings of Adele Shaw and is a show exploring the emotions, energy, and spirit of water. The show opens February 3 at YoloArts’ Gallery 625 in Woodland.
Shaw has an extensive resumé and has been an exhibitor in numerous group and solo exhibitions on the east and west coasts. A native of New Jersey, Shaw has lived in California since 1989. She has been a selected artist in residence at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in 2003, and has twice been a guest artist (2005 and 2009) there.
In her artist statement for this exhibition, Shaw explains that she “looks to connect the observer to water; to transport them to a place of spirituality and sublimity.” Her work uses a full palette of colors to illustrate water in its many constructs.
“Paradoxically, it is hard to say anything new about water, even though water appears new every time I look at it,” Shaw stated. “By creating stirring, emotional paintings of water I hope to emphasize our collective awareness of the importance of water, one painting at a time.”
The exhibition opens February 3 and continues through February 28. A meet the artist reception is planned 6 – 8 p.m., Friday, February 3, during the downtown Woodland First Friday Art Walk. A special YoloArts member preview will be held from 5-6 p.m. and will include a presentation by Shaw.
