Paintings by Judy Shelton and sketches by Tina Nelson.
Judy Shelton works primarily with gouache and bases her paintings on what she sees on walks and drives through town. "The Berkeley that I strive to portray is quirky, creative, and beautiful," she says. "There is the unexpected house in an alley that is surrounded by heavy industry, a fence assembled out of used glass and wood doors, or the eerie loveliness of a ruined, graffiti-covered industrial building. Along with the eccentric, I want to convey the beauty of everyday scenes we may pass without noticing:"
Tina Nelson’s work is done in graphite on paper. She specializes in images of people and animals. “I’ve lived and worked in the Bay Area for many years where my art has been shown and sold. I have an art education background, teaching both children and adults. I like to draw those people and animals that evoke a personal connection for me.”
