Name: Art Exhibit: For the Love of Nature

Event Description:
RECEPTION: Saturday, May 4, 2024: 2 - 5 PM: Join artists Ron Sumner and Willow LaLand to celebrate the show. Refreshments will be served. Sonoma County artist, Ron Sumner, presents For the Love of Nature, a collection of paintings that highlight the phenomenal flora and fauna found in nature. From the glory of Yosemite to the majestic “king of the jungle,” these paintings elicit a sense of awe. Painted in oil, “Lion” sets his gaze on us, boldly asserting his all powerful presence. “Yosemite,” also in oil, sets forth an expansive scene of the valley’s iconic rock formations, framed by the forest evergreens. Circling back to the home front, Sumner presents a new watercolor, “Pasture Pastime,” a young cow resting in a field. The exhibit will also feature some of the artist’s favorite subject matter – birds. “For an artist, nature is always fascinating and an never ending source of inspiration,” noted Sumner. A lifelong Northern Californian, Sumner began his art training in school. After earning a BFA from the CA College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, he was a technical illustrator for a number of years before becoming a full-time fine arts painter. He is award-winning and has exhibited widely. His awards include Best of Show at the Society of Western Artists; his portrait of John F. Kennedy is part of the permanent collection in the Kennedy Library; his painting, “Red Tail Hawk” was selected for Splash 15, Best of Watercolor. Last year Sumner participated in the Veterans Art Show for CA veterans in Petaluma. Meet the Artist: Sumner will be hosting the Gallery May 11, 11 am to 6 pm and May 19 & 24, 2:30 – 6 pm.
