Opening Reception – Saturday, June 28 • 5–7pm

Linda Clayton translates her imaginal visions into highly creative images using oil sticks. Driven by color and shape, she creates images that are “thrilling, joyful and full of whimsy.”

Charles Steinhacker is a former National Geographic and Life Magazine photographer whose work spans 50 years. His photographs range from ethereal photos of natural phenomena to bold saturated images to pure abstractions. His artistic vision has remained stubbornly and distinctly his own.

Linda Clayton

Having started life as a professional photographer, Linda has come as far from that as the imagination can stretch. Linda Clayton’s painting life began late. Her mother, a portrait painter, died and left Linda her paints and she followed the thread that led her past oil paints, brushes and realism to her own vision using oil bars. Linda became quickly hooked by the colors and by the oil sticks in particular. She finds working with these bars thrilling, joyful and full of serendipity.
