Artist's Reception at Sutter Creek Gallery

Artist's Reception at Sutter Creek Gallery

Saturday
February 6th 2016
4pm - 7pm
 
Sutter Creek Gallery invites you to meet Anje Olmstead at the reception in her honor, as part of Amador Arts First Saturday Art Trek.

Anje Olmstead, a multi-faceted artist, has designed needlepoint tapestries, painted with watercolors and colored pencils, and created paper mosaic collages.  The latter medium is her favorite and will be prominently displayed during her show in February as featured artist at Sutter Creek Gallery.  The show, entitled “Up and Over, Down and Under, and Within,” explores how we view the world.  

Olmstead has been exhibiting her varied media works at Sutter Creek Gallery for the past several years.  In her first year there, she presented a series of needlepoint tapestry narrative pieces.  She had discovered “glow-in-the-dark thread” and several of the pieces had flights of birds or butterflies that glowed when the lights were out.   Last year she created a series of watercolor and colored pencil cats and dogs for the Phantom Gallery at Petco in Martell.  Along with her paper mosaics, she has been showing plein air watercolor work from a fall trip to Minnesota. 

The gallery is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Saturday
February 6th
2016
7 p.m.
 
The New Orleans native Aaron Neville began his career in the R&B music industry in 1966 with his first hit “Tell It Like It Is,” a single that was covered by many artists including Kim Davis, Heart, and actor Don Johnson. In 1976, Aaron effortlessly transitioned into a new role and The Neville Brothers were founded. Together with Art, Charles, and Cyril, The Neville Brothers’ music offered Cajun and Creole influences and their debut album, which included their hit “Bird on a Wire,” was released in 1978.
 
Since his time as a solo artist, Aaron Neville has released 16 albums, guest starred in numerous television shows including The Young and the Restless, and is an inductee of the Delta Music Museum Hall of Fame in Louisiana. In 2013, Neville released My True Story, a representation of his incredible career, during which he moved seamlessly back and forth between solo work and his role in the first family of New Orleans music. “These songs helped to mold me into who I am,” says Neville. “They’re all dear to my heart, and they rode with me, in my bones, through all these years.”
 
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m. Beer, food, and wine will be available for purchase.
 
Tickets are on sale now starting at $25 for Dreamcatcher’s Club® members, available only at the Casino Cashier Cage and starting at $30 for non-Dreamcatcher’s Club® members, available at the Casino Cashier Cage or online at JacksonCasino.com.
