Noted Humboldt County Artists Show Work at Main Street Gallery in September

A triad of artists from Humboldt County will exhibit their diverse art work at the Main Street Gallery during September. Each artist has a unique style, medium, and range expressing an abundant flow of creativity and a vivid sensory experience for all viewers. The Gallery is privileged to present Elizabeth Berrien, (wire art), Regina Case (oil paintings of animals in various settings), and Rachel Schlueter (oil abstracts and figures). All three artists have exhibited their work at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka.

Elizabeth Barrien

Elizabeth Berrien has created amazing wire sculptures and illustrations for more than 40 years. While her expertise is especially sharp with animals and humans, she adds the same energy to inanimate objects, from architectural elements to spacecraft. Berrien's striking wire ad series for the BBC, "Cables, Guns, Food", swept the 2008 international awards circuit with an array of prestigious awards including a Clio, Cannes Gold Lion, One Show Gold Pencils, two Gold Andy's, two Grands from London International, and the Obie Best of Show culminating with the honor of the Big Won, "Best Innovative/Alternative Media" worldwide. She received the D&AD Awards 2008 nomination for a Yellow Pencil Award for Outstanding Achievement.

Regina Case

Regina Case paints what’s around her every day--the cup of coffee, animals, the river--by using unlikely combinations of elements or points of view. The images are shifted beyond everyday reality, infusing it with heightened significance. She pulls nature inside in her paintings and fills the rooms with sunlight and color, all things interwoven to transport the mind and bring life into quiet places. A resident of Northern California, Case has had solo exhibitions at Robert Allen Fine Art Gallery in Sausalito, Convergence Gallery in Santa Fe, the Desert Art Collection in Palm Springs, D’Adamo/Woltz Gallery in Seattle, the Rodger LaPelle Galleries in Philadelphia, and the Erlich Gallery in Marblehead.  


Rachel Schlueter

Rachel Schlueter’s paintings manifest from a desire to experience spontaneous creativity. This desire is a fascination with melding abstract gesture with representational form. Intuition and imagination has been key in her personal and professional life, it’s a sense that has been present from her earliest memories, and most significantly represented in her paintings. The exhibition will feature new portraits in oil of varying sizes. Her work is currently on exhibit at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka.
