Phyllis Shafer: Stremmel Gallery

Stremmel Gallery
1400 South Virginia Street

Artist Reception: Thursday, October 20, 5:30 - 7:30pm

Cerulean Days, an exhibition of recent paintings by Phyllis Shafer, will open at Stremmel Gallery in Reno on Thursday, October 20th and run through Saturday, November 19th. The gallery will host a reception for the artist on Thursday, October 20, 5:30 - 7:30pm.

For the past two years, Phyllis Shafer has explored, through plein air painting, the landscape of northern Nevada. From the expansive, sagebrush-filled tablelands of the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge and the Smoke Creek desert to the lush, alpine beauty of the Ruby Mountains and the Snake Range, Phyllis Shafer's paintings celebrate the color, forms, and innate rhythms unique to the Great Basin. This series of paintings continues to explore the relationship between the intimate details of foreground flora and the calming allure of deep space.
