Artists get in on the ground floor
The artists invite everyone to come visit the new gallery, have some refreshments and meet the artists who are part of this gallery.
See Claudine Granthem’s wall sculptures, which are made by manipulating various materials such as handmade paper, cloth, twine, metal and painted wood.
These pieces are layered from the inside out, showing both internal and external parts — as references to the human figure and states of being.
Victoria Perez Mott, glass and semiprecious stone jewelry artist, has relocated her studio from the Upstairs Gallery to this new space. She creates glass beads by using glass rods and a torch and works with plate glass — cutting, grinding, firing, tumbling and drilling to make art forms.
Tim Davies is a photographer who especially loves landscapes, old buildings and barns. He is currently working on his California Mission Series, which is on display at the gallery.
He has photographed 16 of the 21 missions and is working on a book about the missions.
The clay vessels that Kay de Lange is displaying in the gallery are sculptural in feeling, using various finishing techniques to enhance the shape of the piece.
Many are burnished before firing. Different firing techniques, including sawdust firings are used to get the effects she wants.
The Gallery At The End Of The Hall is located at 419 Main St. in Placerville, near the Bell Tower.
For more information call Perez Mott at 530-417-1866. Other galleries will be open on the 18th for the Third Saturday Art Walk making for an enjoyable stroll downtown.
