"THE ART OF JIM STALLINGS"

1919 Where The Wild Zin Grows

 Stallings has always explored the relationship between music and pure color. This has led to his painting live on stage with symphony orchestras, including Maui, Long Beach, San Diego and Honolulu. He painted with the Russian National Orchestra during their visit to Yountville in 2011.

He seeks harmony of music and color and their positive effects on the human spirit. In essence, he collaborates with scientists, conductors and musicians. The musical sweep extends to his painting to live jazz at Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Napa and New York. Stallings has long been associated with the Napa Valley, including a tenure as guest artist at Clos Pegase Winery.

Please join us in welcoming Jim back to Yountville at a reception on Thursday, April 25th at 5:30 PM. The "Art of Jim Stallings" exhibit will extend through Friday, July 26, 2019.

"THE NATURE OF COLOR"

featuring Jean Cullinane

 2


The opening reception for artist Jean Cullinane, “The Nature of Color”, will be Thursday August 1, 5:30-7:00 PM at Gallery at the Yountville Community Center located at 6516 Washington Street in Yountville.  Beverages and light bites will be provided.

Cullinane’s mantra is, “I paint for the sheer joy of it!”  She is a native Californian who grew up in Marin County and moved to Napa fifty years ago.  She draws inspiration from western vistas, coastal tides, the natural light and color around us.  She creates compositions that explore and express love of the natural world and its amazing color.

 At age 50, Cullinane returned to school and earned a BA degree with emphasis in painting and minor in art history.  She paints in oil, glazes and builds layers to create depth and a glow in her work.  Initially looking for proportion and harmony, she sometimes moves from a nature inspired composition to something more abstract.

Cullinane is especially devoted to her garden that also serves as a muse for her painting.  She recently visited Ghost Ranch, the New Mexico homestead and studio of the late Georgia O’Keefe who also shared a similar passion for gardening.  Cullinane shows her work at Riverfront Gallery in Petaluma and Calamity Jane’s Trading Co. on First Street in Napa. 

“The Nature of Color” by artist Jean Cullinane is presented by Yountville Arts.  The exhibit will extend through Friday November 1. For more information about Jean, visit www.jeancullinaneart.com and for more information about Yountville Arts visit 707-944-8712.
