"Shasta Sojourn" exhibit.
For six years, a group of North Coast artists has gathered to spend a week together in nature and create, bonded by a shared loss and the joy of discovery.
The group's new show, “Shasta Sojourn: Paintings, Drawings and Photographs by Six Women Artists,” is on exhibit this month at the Upstairs Art Gallery in Arcata.
A public reception for the artists will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday during Arts! Arcata at 1063 G St. inside Umpqua Bank. A trunk show for Eureka weaver Nancy Kennedy, who makes handwoven rugs and scarves, will also take place that evening.
Included in the exhibit are plein air paintings and photographs by Becky Evans, Judy Evenson, Carrie Grant, Linda Mitchell, Kathy O'Leary and Theresa Oats.
In June, the women gathered for a week-long trip to Mount Shasta where they captured lavender fields, lupine prairies, alpine lakes, rivers and, of course, mountains."
