Willits Center for the Arts presents Sandy Strong's Watercolors and Photographs and Robert Rhoades’ Paper Constructions

Sandy Strong: “For this show I decided to feature my photographs and watercolors of flowers and their companions, birds and butterflies. I find that their range of colors, size and form present an endless variety of combinations that fascinate me. I have lived in Willits for the past 35 years and have taken photos and painted with watercolor all of this time. I am a member of the Willits Photography Club and I have served on the Board of Directors of the Willits Center for the Arts for the past 5 years. I love color and the contrasts of light against dark and finding just the right light for my photographs. I usually paint from these photos, trying to capture the beauty that I see and feel.”

Bob Rhodes earned his Master of Fine Arts degree in 1980 at the University of New Mexico. He assumed the position of art department coordinator for the College of the Redwood, Mendocino Coast in 1982. Bob Rhoades has studied eastern papermaking in Kochi, Japan and non-toxic printmaking techniques in Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada. At CR he has taught Painting, Color and Design, Printmaking, Paper-making, Sculpture, Drawing, Illustration and Art Appreciation. He has exhibited extensively in the U.S. and lectured in London at the Chelsea School of Art and in Miasa Japan at the Bunka Center. In recent years he has lectured to small groups in major museums throughout western Europe.
