Art Works Gallery artist Michelle Jewett has entered her work in this years Wild & Scenic Film Festival. Her piece, “Pristine Wilderness” is an acrylic/mixed media painting. “It is a product of my imagination, although it could easily have been inspired by the jagged awe inspiring peaks of the Eastern Sierra.“

She created the mountain range using pieces of magazines with intriguing colors and textures then used acrylic paint to blend the shapes into a cohesive image. The light and dark pieces suggest sun lit and shadowed mountain faces. A restful sky and richly colored foreground complete the painting.

“To me this work reflects a beautiful, peaceful and untouched wilderness,” said Jewett. A short video about her piece can be viewed on Youtube

Casey and Marisa Etheredge opened Ether’s Edge in mid-November, and already the business has been a hit among downtown shoppers.

The shop feels like a high-end art gallery and looks like it would be right at home in a big city, with its bright walls and tall ceilings. Instead of the paintings and sculptures you’d find in a more traditional gallery, the mainstays at Ether’s Edge are rocks and minerals and crystals in nearly every color you can imagine.

The gallery feel of the shop isn’t an accident either. Casey said they want people to feel comfortable coming into the shop without feeling the pressure to buy anything.
