Historic Percha Bank & Gallery, 42 Main Street, Kingston
Hillsboro artist Melody Sears is inspired by the many moods of the natural world, finding endless variety within the eastern foothills of the Black Range in Sierra County. Her new show of landscapes in pastel at the Historic Percha Bank in Kingston reflects “the moments I try to capture, out doing plein air painting… and the moods I emphasize in my studio work.” Last year’s Silver Fire, which raged through the Gila National Forest and came within a quarter mile of Kingston, inspired her with the terrible beauty of the destructive power of nature, as well as nature’s regenerative forces.
Visit the Historic Percha Bank for an artist’s reception, 5-7pm, Friday, September 5, 2014. As you drive the nine miles west from Hillsboro up to Kingston, following Percha Creek, you may observe these awesome forces at work: how nature moves mountains, recycles rainwater, and regenerates the landscape. And, in the work of Melody Sears, you can experience some of the moods of the watershed on the eastern slope of the Continental Divide. Music & refreshments.
