Amy Ellis Taylor and JD Jeffries
Wine will be poured to benefit EPIC, the Environmental Protection Information Center.
Music by JD Jeffries.
Amy Ellis Taylor has returned to the Trinidad Art Gallery after a year's hiatus, and she has come back with strong, beautiful works concentrating on the life of our Pacific Coast. She grew up along this coastline and has seen the ocean and the trees in every time of day throughout the seasons.
She tells us, "What I love most about describing things that are very familiar to me, through art, is that I feel free to move into the abstract. Sometimes this exploration occurs in the palette I have chosen, and sometimes it happens in design. Either way, falling away from the literal translation of our landscape allows this medium to better interpret a feeling of real beauty."
JD Jeffries Donahue is a long-time musician, singer, and songwriter who has played in bands alongside many top Northern California musicians since 1964. The “folksy” Jeffries plays countless classic mixed covers and originals with a flare and obvious love for his songs, with a smooth and personable delivery.
JD will be playing during the Friday evening Artist Reception.
