James Shay: Grove Studies

November 10 - December 6, 2015

Reception for the artist: November 14, 5:30 - 7:30pm

James Shay Grove Study at Seager Gray Gallery

From his Lucas Valley studio, James Shay finds inspiration in the dramatic rolling hills of the west Marin County California landscape. Stands of trees dot the landscape in the folds of the hills where the rainfall gathers in the wet seasons. It is these clustered “groves” of trees that form the basis of the exhibition, a study of shape and pattern inspired by nature, but clearly abstracted, allowing for rich contrasts of color and patterned separations of space.
