Laurie Shelton’s “Cows”
Laurie Shelton’s “Cows” in the Spotlight Gallery. Painter Laurie Shelton is a longtime Napa Valley resident whose paintings of farm animals are highly prized from St. Helena to Palo Alto to Paris. Having lost her husband to brain cancer, the image of a cow became the vehicle for her to work through her emotions. She paints figures and portraits but it is the cow image where she has found a release. This exhibition will include new works as well as a “cattle roundup” of works from the private collections of her fans. Paintings for sale during the exhibition will benefit the Museum’s arts and education programs.
The Opening Night Celebration on April 13, 2019 at 5 pm will include an auction of a painting generously donated by the artist.
