8B Wednesday, July 15, 2009 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter "Special Place" and "Special Faces" now on display at museum A watercolor of the Polka Dot Drive-in by Gary Barlow. Barlow and his wife attended Quincy High School in the "60s and said they still go to the drive-in for lunch like they did then. "As always, it is good people serving good food, thanks to the Perkins family." Photos by Traci Bue Traci Bue Staff Writer Now showing at the Plumas County Museum through August are paintings by Gary Barlow and his sis- ter-in-law Elissa Barlow, artists from Reno, Nev., and Portola. The his and her collections, titled "Special Places" and "Special Faces" respectively, are a series of mostly water- color and gouache works cap- turing the unique identity of local landmarks and the characteristics of personality in a moment in time. Gary Barlow: Special Places The museum has special significance to Barlow who grew up in Quincy and, as a young laborer, helped his contractor father construct the building in 1967 that now shows his art. Barlow said of his work, "Northern California and Nevada have been home for almost half my life, and in the last couple of years I started to paint landmarks or institutions that every- body in the region knows about. They are used for navigation--'it's just west of Moon's' or 'across the highway from Wiggins.' "People like these spots for emotional, esthetic, his- toric and various other reasons; they provide an- chors while things around them continually change. "Communities nowadays, because of technology, chain stores, traffic control and in- frastructure, look more and more alike. Special Places gives some unique identity. "My hope is that the viewers of these paintings will feel as though they would like to visit these special places." Barlow's style is clear and precise, not diffuse in the style of some watercolor artists. This clarity is further exemplified by the composi- tion of happy, familiar land- marks, frozen in time and dappled by shadow and light of perfect summer days. The nostalgic scene offers a com- forting slice of life in simpler days. Most of the landmarks in his series are still around today. Barlow said light is an im- portant factor in his paint- ings, which can take two or three weeks to complete be- cause of his full-time job as a registered nurse at Renown Hospital in Reno. He is currently a member of the Sierra Watercolor Soci- ety, but has worked in vari- ous mediums during his life- time interest in art. Elissa Barlow: Special Faces Elissa Barlow captures the essence of personality in her Watercolor by Gary Barlow titled "Downtown Sattley." The Sattley store on the corner of A-23 and Highway 89 was once the commercial center of Sattley, home to some of Sierra County's 3,500 residents. gouache on paper collection of portraits and horses. The vibrant colors, atten- tion to detail and ability to capture personality and emotion on the faces of her subjects are her strengths. "Disability distilled, physi- cal and emotional torment condenses, each element of suffering extracted; exquisite essence becomes my palette's vibrant cues," she said. "While multiple sclerosis has rendered my body nearly useless, an artist's life experi- ences, heart and spirit remain. So as you view this collection, you witness light and shadow, color in motion, the special faces of my life." View the artists' work at the Plumas County Museum in Quincy now through August. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For more information, call 283-6320. "Dewy Williams." Gouache on paper by Elissa Barlow.
