Los Olivos Cafe
Conversations with Nature
Art on View at Los Olivos Cafe
July 7th - September 1st
A new art exhibit in Los Olivos! Experience the essence of the California Central Coast with its rolling hills, vineyards and olive farms in this romantic little town. Enjoy Laurel Sherrie's paintings that capture her conversations with the nature of the Central Coast while partaking in the ambience & gourmet food of Los Olivos Cafe. This is her 3rd annual exhibit at the Cafe - come see her new pieces! About her work, the artist says, “I paint interpretive landscapes in oils, focusing on rural, coastal and wild California. I love lots of color, and California is amazing with its unique light and variety of scenery. Painting outdoors is a great inspiration, and I find the dramatic shadows of early-morning and late-afternoon light especially intriguing. As a plein-air painter, there’s an intense involvement with the environment.” “Fostering passion for and inspiring people to preserve our treasured rural and wild areas is one of my top goals for painting. I love these areas and feel a need to share my passion and vision, which I do best with brush and canvas.” Laurel forwards these goals as an active member of S.L.O.P.E. (San Luis Outdoor Painters for the Environment), who use their art to draw public attention and generate funds for preserving local lands.
This exhibit is one of a continuing series of shows made possible by the commitment of the Los Olivos Café to showcase local art and artists. The Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley, a nonprofit arts organization with over thirty years of history in the area, coordinates and manages the “art without borders” installation in cooperation with the Café. A portion of art sales benefits AGSYV and these collaborative efforts - a way to keep art alive and accessible in the Santa Ynez Valley.
