Four other paintings reflect her personal and very recognizable 'architectural' style.  New pottery from Marilyn Baldwin spotlights a crystallizing glaze which adds luminosity to the surface of her slabwork pieces.  Bruce Peccianti has brought in more of his intriguing "zen doodles" drawings, highly-likable pen and ink works of tea pots or natural subjects, and a larger collage piece as well.  Gallery hours areFridaySaturday, and Sunday from 10-5.

Sutter Creek Gallery -  Janice Freischlag is the featured artist for April, who says, “My passion is to bring life to my art with color, style and textures that stimulate all the senses.”  She began her fascination with art in 1989 while living in Wiesbaden, Germany,  when she learned Bauernmalerei, a German folk art.  Upon returning to the U.S., she expanded her skills and took up oil painting and was soon getting commissions for pet portraits and more.  She is now accomplished in a wide range of painting media in which she creates images of florals, animals, and seascapes at her Lake Comanche home.  A reception in her honor will be held on Saturday, April 5, from 4 to 7 p.m.  Spend some time with Jan Freischlag at her reception which is part of the First Saturday Art Trek.  She is one of 30 local artists exhibiting at the cooperative located in the heart of Sutter Creek at 35 Main Street.  Sutter Creek Gallery is open SundayMondayWednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  For additional information, call 209-267-0228 or email suttercreekgallery@gmail.com

Both artists have looked to our environment to observe the quality and function of light.  71 Main St., Sutter Creek, CA 95685. Gallery Hours: 11:00am – 5:30pm daily. www.fineeye.com  or call209-267-0571.

Petroglyphe Gallery  - Raku Ceramics of Harry Nakamoto  His works are fired using processes adapted from historic and prehistoric times.  One process, Raku, first used in sixteenth century Japan to fire tea ceremony vessels, involves extreme and very rapid temperature changes that would shatter ordinary pottery.  Another process, the Anagama... "cave kiln" in Japanese, is an ancient design that was abandoned about three hundred years ago and revived in the early part of the last century.  The firing process involves stoking firewood in to the kiln for seventeen hours each of the five consecutive days required to complete the cycle.
