Fiber Art, Monika Ellis
January 3, 2020 - February 28, 2020 

Monika Ellis is a Bay Area self-taught fiber artist.  Originally from Canada, she enjoyed working with all forms of artistic mediums from a young age.  After arriving in the Bay Area and starting a family, she wanted to express her new motherhood experiences through art, and fiber was the perfect medium in both form and function. The pieces are inspired by the beauty of the Western coastline, with themes of growth, evolution, and rebirth.  Her work combines traditional woven art patterns, organic shapes, and at times, whimsical elements.  Instagram: @loomerystudios

Paintings, Tom Brooks
January 10, 2020 - February 27, 2020

Tom Brooks began his formal art education in Florence, Italy, studying with Dottore Umberto Brandigi and continued by earning a B.A., M.A. and M.F.A., with an emphasis on landscape.  Tom believes “My art offers the opportunity to enrich, expand, and experience – to come to Self.  I look, listen and react to what is going on in the painting and what I am feeling – letting go, seeking, clarifying, discovering.  I began by learning how to draw and paint realistically from Nature – the landscape, the figure and still life – my grounding.”
