Colleen Clifford and Lisa Landis
Trinidad Art Night Reception: Friday, August 3rd, 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Colleen Clifford's skilled glass work is light and flowing, usually treating subjects in nature. This past year, Clifford has been concentrating on stained glass images inspired by our vast ocean. Her lines create the pattern, and the chosen glass colors create the underlying depths and reflective nature of wate. She creates these wave windows in ever-changing perspectives to express the light and texture found in the endless variety of ocean wave scenes.
Clifford's delight in the ocean's variety is also reflected in her work with glass boxes and small mandala ornaments. The mirrored bottoms of these boxes reflect the rich, luminescent textures and colors of the glass she selects, and a simple wave on top brings a bit of motion to this precious piece of home decor.
Having shown her work locally since 2012, Landis joined Trinidad Art's cooperative gallery last fall. Her landscapes are inspired by and beautifully interpret the overwhelming beauty of our area.
One of her pieces has just been accepted in the 32nd annual International juried exhibition of the Pastel Society of the West Coast. It will be on display in Morro Bay from August 16 -September 16.
