Hawthorne Staff Writer shawthor As summer foliage changes color and children head back to school, artists at the Back Room Art Gallery are reliving their moments of fun in the sun with a reception featuring some of their favorite places. On Saturday, Sept. 6, three local artists who kept their cameras, canvases and brushes nearby throughout the,summer are sharing what came of their season of inspiration. This month, the gallery will feature Sally Posner, Mary Jane Bagshaw and Kate Rondon. Posner is a watercolor and oils artist from Lake Almanor East Shore. She is well-known for her plein air watercolors and sketches. She will be showcasing several new oil paintings, including "Almanor Summer" and "Hat Creek." Bagshaw is an oils and pastels artist living on the Lake Almanor Peninsula. Her love of the outdoors has taken her traveling and hiking through the backcountry of the Western United States. Her travels taught her how to appreciate and connect with the changing patterns and color in the land. Bagshaw will be sharing oil paintings she created along her summer journey, including "Sierra Gold," which was inspired by Hope Valley; and "Columbia River Gorge." Rondon, a photographer from Almanor West, will be showcasing her memories through still-life photography. She said, "Travel exciting spirit of adv~l~ture and discovery for me." Her travels have taken her to many of the state and national parks as well as Austria and Italy. Included in this exhibit will be photos of "Vernazza Color" and "Portofino," both taken in Italy. The gallery reception, located inside Books & Beyond in Chester, is open to all who wish to join.
