In the lobby of the Council Chambers, the City is displaying eleven pieces of new art work by local artists Sher LeGault and Naomi Weston Flowers. The paintings feature northern Nevada wild life and wilderness with popping brilliant colors that make you want to relax and admire with a hot cup of coffee. Come down to City Hall and view all of their paintings now through January 2020.
Naomi Weston Flowers - About the Artist
Grew up in Lassen County, raised on ranch. I took art in high school. I am self taught what I paint now. I have won awards at fairs and art shows.
Sher LeGault - Artist Statement
Most of my artwork is oil on canvas. I may paint oil on wooden panel board or hard board. On occasion I may use acrylic in the background, completing the actual painting with oil paints. Many of my paintings reflect the bright colors of the sky and desert. I employ a realistic style but reserve an artistic license to deviate from the norm on occasion.
I visit different and interesting places around Nevada and California taking photographs, then returning to my studio in Fernley, Nevada (for the past 25 years) for the actual process of painting the picture.
The Nevada desert, old buildings, Fort Churchill, the rivers, birds and animals are of primary interest to me. I have painted a series of "Windows into the Past", which are from photographs taken out at Fort Churchill, which highlight the contrast between the bright sunshine, blue sky's, the dark shadows of the old buildings and the desert.
Most recently I am painting glassware. Canister Sets, Vases and Wine, Old Fashion and Water Glasses, along with Cups, and Plate and Bowl sets. I do take special orders for the glassware.
