In October Gallery 2110 presents the exhibition “Stages,” works by GayLynn Ribeira and Anne Bradley.
Ribeira explains her project for this show best, saying, “Inspiration for this show came as I pondered the many different stages of a woman’s life from the innocence of childhood, to the wisdom of maturity,” she said. “I started to examine both the beautiful and unpleasant stages of their lives and to see the stories written in their eyes.”
Ribeira has studied with Italian master painters and traveled internationally. Her technique and experience certainly show in her portraits and figurative oil paintings.
In the Loft Gallery Gallery 2110 will have works by Anne Bradley. Bradley has dedicated the theme of stages (as in theater stages) to her late nephew, James Alan Isaac, a well-known director of horror films, puppeteer and special effects maker, whodied earlier this year. Bradley enjoys metalwork after several years as a watercolor and acrylic painter.
“I explore metal work in sculpture and integrate it into my paintings,” she explained. “I have a continuing interest in experimentation, and get excited about finding new materials or new ways of using old materials. I start with words and concepts, then go on to size, color and shapes.”
A Second Saturday reception will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 13 at the gallery, 2110 K St., Sacramento.
In addition to the exhibition, The Sacramento Art Complex also has 26 artist studios rented to some of this area’s finest artists as well as two sculpture gardens and are located centrally in Midtown Sacramento.
