Maureen McGarry is a watercolor painter who primarily paints local landscapes. Also a teacher, she has offered classes to people of all ages over the past 40 years, primarily teaching art to children in many of the local schools.
Inspired by a visit to the actual site of the infamous three-day concert in Bethel, New York, she will be available to sign prints of two watercolors paintings inspired by her experience there. Cards and a children’s book written and illustrated by the artist are also available at the gallery.
Donvieve is a multi-dimensional artist/educator. She creates masks that challenge our personal barriers and speak to our inner spaces. Another longtime resident of Humboldt County, she is best known as a mask-maker. She has conducted many art workshops, including in other countries.
Primarily made from tanned leather, her masks are molded over a sculpted form and transforms them into a multitude of characters. Masks, cards, and a guidebook for incorporating art into school curriculum are available for sale at the gallery.
