The Gift: Small Works of Art by Valerie Powell

Sunday, December 9, 2007, 15 pm

The Quicksilver Mine Co. will present a very special exhibition of exquisite small works of art by Valerie Powell on Sunday afternoon, December 9th. This will be a rare opportunity to meet Valerie and spend an art-filled afternoon with family, friends, and fellow art lovers sharing her intimate small paintings, drawings, and collages.

Originally from England, and now living in the hills above the Russian River, Powell has spent her entire lifetime painting and drawing in very small scale. For this afternoon Show, pen and ink drawings, rich landscapes suggestive of color experience, abstract and still-life paintings, and rich textural collages will fill baskets of all sizes and shapes in the Gallery.
