Opening Reception:  November 7th 5:30 PM

Show will be on display through November 29th 

91 year-old Cardone was born in Brooklyn, New York.  Her Italian parents had immigrated through Ellis Island.  Marilyn moved to California in 1954 and after living in several cities, including Saint Helena, moved to Yountville in 2010.  

Her art training began with clay sculpture in Santa Cruz where her work was featured in the newspaper.  She began taking classes in 1988 in a variety of media at Napa Valley College with instructors such as Theo Fabian Becker.  “The thread running through my art is mirroring an inner vision with the outer vision” says Cardone.  Her work has been shown in many locations including a group show in Yountville in 2010 and a miniatures show at the Napa Valley Museum in 2012.

“The Art of Gloria Cardone” is presented by Yountville Arts.  The exhibition will extend through November 29. The Gallery at Community Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM – 5 PM and evenings and weekends by appointment. Please call (707) 944-8712 or email yountvillearts@yville.com for more information.

Pathless (1)UPCOMING SHOW

Featuring

SHARON CRARY

OPENING RECEPTION

THURSDAY, JANUARY 16th  5:30 - 7 PM

 

 

 

Sharon's goal is to make art that is dimensional and colorful. She accomplishes this through weaving. This unique exhibit will feature 18 works of woven art that begin hours before Sharon sits down at the loom. Her process can begin with color blending on paper where colors express the idea, mood or emotion that she is looking for. Then Sharon then chooses a weaving technique. 

Life Yarn

"This mid-west born "girl" has always had the creative urge whether living in Ohio, Louisiana or California.  It seems like I've been weaving all my life but it's only been a short 40+ years.  In between weaving and working in public schools with communicatively challenged children I've been married to my middle school sweet heart for over 50 years and have two talented and successful daughters, who along with their husbands, have given us delightful granddaughters.  Now from my Napa Valley studio I continue to weave an occasional scarf or necklace, many tapestries and weft face rugs using the shaft switching technique.  I'm primarily self taught but have benefited greatly from the excellent teachers in classes and workshops and the textile books that focused on color, design and technique.  I am a happy and willing student in the "What if" continuing education school. "
