The Center for the Arts presents Denise Wey – A Retrospective. Denise has been painting rivers in acrylic for 20 years. This exhibit is a chronicle of these waters and her work. Her paintings will be on display in the Granucci Gallery from November 6 through December 23, 2020.
Denise Wey is a painter, known for her large-format contemporary acrylic paintings of the local Yuba River that grace many homes throughout Nevada County. She also teaches disciplines including painting and drawing, and is now teaching art live online in Zoom. She is a member of both Art Works Gallery and ASiF Studios in Grass Valley.
“Painting for me is like breathing…I have no choice but to paint wild, beautiful Nature! My Native American soul finds refuge in the flowing water, rock sculpture and lush foliage. The Yuba River is a continuous source of inspiration for me. The lush trees and the rock sculpture, the reflections of cobalt, turquoise, emerald and ember of the waters, are all imbued with the joyful spirit of the river. I’ve decided that my path is to immerse myself in the dazzling beauty and transcribe it’s living presence onto canvas for generations to come,” Denise Wey.
