Join us for the Tahoe Art Walk featuring local artist Malcolm Tibbetts. Malcolm assembled his first two pieces of wood together at age five in his grandfather's workshop. In the mid 90’s, after building multiple pieces of furniture and after acquiring a shop full of tools, Malcolm's journey took him to the wonderful world of segmented woodturning. Join us for drinks and hors d'oeuvres to celebrate one of our newer artists, Malcolm Tibbetts, on Saturday, February 8th.
Celebrate the unveiling of Jack's new optical crystal jewelry collection this Valentines Day weekend! Jack Storms glass sculpting begins at the heart of the design, by creating a core of lead crystal which is cut, polished and fused creating reflective mirrors. When wrapped in optical crystal, the refraction of light, as it passes through the glass art, creates rainbows of hypnotic color. The 10-week process of repetitive cutting, grinding and polishing requires intense passion and rigid self-discipline. Join us at the gallery Saturday, February 15th and Sunday, February 16th for refreshments, as Jack dedicates and presents his work.
Help us welcome our newest artist, Sally Maxwell. Sally has helped to define scratchboard as a fine art medium; using similar techniques to etching or engraving, scratchboard originally was used for magazine illustration and for products in catalogs. Working with scratchboard allows Sally to layer up rich, deep colors and capture minute details, and her innovation and experimentation with new tools has given her the ability to produce a softer, less linear technique. Join us at the gallery for refreshments and hors d'oeuvres on February 21st and 22nd as Sally demonstrates and shares her etching process. Something new & exciting at Marcus Ashley Gallery!
Eric Christensen is a celebrated Napa Valley wine artist. He is the only known artist capable of creating a hyper-realistic style using traditional, transparent watercolor. Due to his innate natural talent in painting, of botany and love of gourmet cooking, Christensen exquisitely captures the romance of the wine country in his landscapes and still life’s. Join us at the gallery on Friday, March 13th and Saturday, March 14th as we host Eric Christensen for live painting and dedications.
Come and enjoy a special presentation, “Complicated Spaces" Workshop by Rolinda Stotts. Rolinda Stotts is the creator of an art form known as "Bella Rotta," meaning Beautifully Imperfect, in Italian. Rolinda uses a ten-step, labor-intensive process to achieve the worn and shattered look of her art. Inspired by her love for family, nature and Italy, each piece is deeply connected to Rolinda and no two pieces are alike. Join us at the gallery and come meet Rolinda at the gallery for hors d'oeuvres, live painting and dedications Friday, March 20th and Saturday, March 21st.
*Workshop on Saturday only at 12:30 pm.
Dr. Seuss considered The Lorax his favorite book. His volume stands as a lasting tribute to those who speak up for the environment, and to the numerous personal, corporate, and societal strides being made to safeguard our natural world. Shortly before his death in 1991, Ted was asked if there was anything left unsaid. He pondered the question and finally responded, “The best slogan I can think of to leave with the U.S.A. would be: ‘We can . . . and we’ve got to . . . do better than this.’” Join us to celebrate our first ever Earth day event featuring The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection and a special guest from the Seuss organization! Proceeds benefit our local Sugar Pine Foundation. Come, and like the Lorax, "Speak for the Trees" April 25th.
