Bread & Butter: Mixed Media Sculpture and Installation by Lush Newton
Originally from Missouri, Lush Newton settled on California’s North Coast in 2001. Here, she melds her experience at Hallmark Cards and her work as a character artist at the Walt Disney Company with her over-the-top cartoon-sculptural inventions—informed by affectionate send-ups of the "Hillbilly Culture" of her native Ozark home and references to the tradition of boisterous cartoons, circa mid-Twentieth Century America.

Location: First Street Gallery (Eureka)
Cost: Free

My Heart's a Little Fast, but Otherwise, Everything's Fine: New paintings by Susanna Bluhm
Susanna Bluhm's work blends abstraction and representation to create landscape environments that engage the viewer's imagination and emotions. Bluhm utilizes many art materials, including, oil, acrylic, gouache, pencil, and colored pencil to create her drawings and paintings. Her style is painterly, incorporating a variety of painting techniques that selectively flatten and expand the depth of her environments.
