Holli Harmon

I find myself to be a contrarian at times, so as a painter, the description of a “contemporary traditionalist” is fitting. It reflects my effort to use imagery that is clearly current while honoring the tradition of painting.

Nina Warner

As a native Californian, I have enjoyed exploring the state, spending time in southern and northern California and particularly in the Sierras. The diversity of landscape and bountiful natural beauty has informed my work on many levels.

Nicole Strasburg

Water is such a prevalent topic in the Tri-Counties, its abundance or dearth. Water and all of its sources will guide the investigation of Rose Compass as we create an exhibition of intimate gouache paintings for the Wildling Museum in Solvang, Febraury 2018. We invite you to follow our journey along the watershed of the Santa Ynez River, the life source that feeds our communities.
