Distinction Gallery will present: June Stratton “Modern Dryads” in an exhibition running February 9 through March 2.
Stratton is a native of Northern California’s Bay Area where she attended the College of Fine Arts and Crafts in Oakland until 1979. She lives and works in both Atlanta and Savannah, Georgia. With a 25-year span of successful exhibitions across the globe, her works have been acquired by many major collections including Bank of America, U.S. Department of State, The Mayo Clinic and Texaco Incorporated.
In the artist’s words: “My paintings are imagined blends of beauty and nature. These paintings are often intentionally idealized representations of emotional impressions from my dreams – entwined with elements of the earth, sky and water that surround my real world. I use symbols and my feminine viewpoint to tell a very loose, abstracted narrative. As in my dreams, my muses cannot see all things, are sometimes unable to speak and frequently appear to be floating.”
Stratton’s exhibition will run from February 9 –March 2. The opening reception with June, live music, ArtHatch open studios, Stone Beer, and BK Cellars wine will be on Saturday February 9 from 6-10 p.m.
Distinction Gallery is located at 317 E Grand Ave Suite A, Escondido. Call them at 760-707-2770.
