Known for his dynamically colorful landscape paintings, Sonoma County artist Jack Stuppin is getting a career-spanning solo show, ‘Past Tense, Present Tense,’
through Aug. 22. Stuppin, who spent many years as part of the Sonoma Four, a group of plein air landscape painters, hasn’t shown in the North Bay for five years. This new exhibit assembles work from throughout his career, all of which practically leaps off the canvas with exceptionally vibrant and engaging scenes of forests, meadows and coastlines. The show’s reception happens on Saturday, July 23, at IceHouse Gallery, 405 East D St., Petaluma. 5pm to 8pm. 707.778.2238.
