Sculpture, Eric Saint Georges March 1, 2019 - April 24, 2019
Eric Saint Georges was born in Paris, France, and moved to the U.S. in 1994. A workshop with the sculptor Petrus in 1978 triggered his passion for sculpture, but he pursued a career in electrical engineering for 35 years before deciding to devote himself to art full-time. His main focus is on figurative sculpture and drawing. He creates most of his sculptures in clay, either from life or from life drawings, then casts them in bronze. He now spends time between his studio in Los Gatos, CA, various life drawing sessions in the Bay Area, the West Valley College foundry, and teaching life drawing and sculpture.
Chinese Brush Paintings, Janny Xiaoqin Huang March 1, 2019 - April 29, 2019
A native of Nanjing, China, Janny Huang graduated from the Jiangsu Academy of Traditional Chinese Painting in 1982 and has been working as a professional painter and teacher since then. Her artwork focuses primarily on subjects from nature in the traditional category of “bird and flower painting,” which also includes fish and insects. Through the simple means of color and ink, she strives to capture the tranquility that nature offers us, to evoke a sense of effortlessness, peace and harmony with the natural world. She pairs much of her work with calligraphed poems and sayings. Huang has exhibited her work both in California and internationally.
