When: April 30-May 27, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
Dan Scannell has a marvelous new area of study. His new series is inspired by Japanese screens from the 19th century. Scannell became interested in the highly stylized nature scenes, and thought it would be fascinating to create Japanese style paintings based on Sonoma County flora and fauna. He was further compelled to develop the backgrounds of these paintings using gold and silver leaf as Japanese artists did when making screens.
Dan Scannell, an award winning artist, is the former Visual Director of I. Magnin in San Francisco and was an instructor at the de Young Museum Art School.
Artist Reception: Saturday, May 12th, 2-5.
