Having driven up from San Francisco on a cold, dreary day, it was an absolute pleasure to come into the warmth and color inside Main Street Artists gallery last Saturday.
This was the second day of Sally Yost’s November show, titled “Garden Party”, that will run through November. Sally is joined by Carr Clifton, a well-known nature photographer, who is showing new, abstract work in the small room in the gallery.
Sally’s subjects range from logging trucks, to mountain scenes, to flowers, gardens and fields. All are full of expression, with dramatic colors, and sometimes-quirky details.
I particularly like “Lakes Basin”, as it reminds me of so many High Sierra lakes that I have visited. The piece called “Garden Party” is very sly, with great masses of colorful flowers fronting a group of three ?stuffed animals? ?imaginary friends? You have to see it to appreciate the humor.
The gallery was filled with lively people, including a family with two young children, already interested in art. Sally was having a great time
chatting with friends and interested art lovers.
In addition to Sally’s show, a renowned nature photographer, Carr Clifton, is exhibiting some of his new work in the small room in the gallery.
Learn more about Carr at his website, www.carrclifton.com. You will be amazed at the photographs therein. Carr has won many awards, and all are well deserved.
The works that Carr is exhibiting this month are very different. They are highly abstract, with fluid lines against white space. Well worth spending some time looking them over.
Driving back home to San Francisco, I passed over Donner Pass in whiteout conditions. But I had plenty to think about and remember from my
visit to Sally and Carr’s November show at the gallery.
