About the Exhibition
Sally Sargent solo exhibition
Sally Sargent's painted subjects range widely, from architecture reminiscent of Escher, to sailboats, the California coastline, and iconic, colorful figures. The Californian works in acrylics, watercolor, pen and ink, and multi-media collages, and has a thirty year history of teaching art, and an eighteen year history of showing.
Some of Sally's most prized works celebrate California lifestyle. Harbor Reflections is a master watercolor of the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor before it suffered severe damage, March 11, 2011, when the tsunami that struck Japan reached shore there. The realistic scene is peaceful, and beautifully colored, with sleepy sailboats rocking gently in their slips.
Sally says that she's traded paintbrush for scissors in retirement. One of her striking collages is, Enter that Golden Gate, a portrait of San Francisco, made of cut paper, watercolor, and India ink. The work is a magnet for those who appreciate Abstract Impressionism, with its lithesome shapes and cool hues, charged with the red bridge.
