Oil, watercolor show on display
June 13, 2017
Gadzooks! Gallery is holding an exhibit and sale of artwork by artist Teri Sweeney from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through June 30.
The show will feature 23 of the artist's oil and watercolor paintings, with a special exhibition of her "From My Window" series. This collection was painted in both mediums by the artist after moving to a home with views of the Sierra Nevada and Jobs Peak from her studio window.
"It was hard to concentrate on other subject matter with the beautiful Sierra right outside my window," she said. "This series helped me to work through the distraction as well as memorializing the beauty of what I see out my window every day."
The show also features other scenes of the Carson Valley and surrounding areas, as well as scenes from her travels to other states. All paintings, as well as a variety of prints and cards, will be for sale.
A reception is set for 4 to 7 p.m. June 23. Gadzooks! Is located at 1411 Highway 395, Gardnerville. For more information, contact the gallery at 782-9665 or gadzooksnv.com. Her work can be seen at tsart.org.
