Artists Saying it with Flowers at Piante Gallery
This month, Eureka's Piante Gallery presents a group show featuring 29 prominent local artists all exploring a floral theme. Flowers, so often associated with congratulations, caring, and condolences, seem an especially fitting focal point as this show represents the final group exhibition for the gallery, which will be closing its doors at the end of the year.
For nearly two decades, Piante has showcased established and emerging local and out-of-the-area artists with work ranging from traditional to the avant-garde. Owner/curator Sue Natzler opened Piante in 2000. Over time, and with generous support from photographer William Pierson and the Pierson Building Center, Natzler developed the gallery into a principal location for Humboldt County artists and art lovers alike.
"Flowers" will include work by: Carol Andersen, Marilyn Andrews, Robert Benson, Dona Blakely, Willa Briggs, Conrad Calimpong, Regina Case, Kit Davenport, Becky Evans, Judy Evenson, Susanna Gallisdorpher, Joan Gold, Lori Goodman, Ryan Jensen, Joan Katri, Mimi LaPlant, Kelly Leal, Louis Marak, John Motian, Lauris Phillips, William Pierson, Leslie Price, Tina Rousselot, Claire Iris Scheneke, Patty Sennott, Theresa Stanley, Laurie Thomsen, Alicia Tredway, and Joseph Wilhelm.
