Water in Art

Ukiah Daily Journal: Ukiah Corner Gallery: ‘Visions of Water’ show featured in front windows, 8/2/23

“Water is on all of our minds, thanks to the past year of abundant rainfall following one of the most severe droughts most of us can remember. A group of inland Mendocino County artists, the Seven Sisters, has decided to literally dive into the theme of “Water” for their upcoming show in the front windows of the Corner Gallery for the month of August.

“The Seven Sisters formed as a group in 2017. Several women reached out to other artists they knew with the idea to do a show at the Willits Center for the Arts. Some of the women knew each other, but some did not. As women do, they decided to get together for coffee before hanging the show, just to get acquainted. They forged an instant connection. Over the ensuing years the group has celebrated their vastly divergent backgrounds, styles and techniques to explore both their differences and similarities with at least three group art shows.”
