Sarah Whitecotton will present an exhibit of landscape paintings in the lobby
of the El Cerrito Community Center from Jan. 2 – Feb. 28 during regular business hours.
The paintings represent places Ms. Whitecotton has lived or visited.
“I have always been surrounded by trees, gardens and open spaces which becomes the
focus of many of my paintings,” she says.
Ms. Whitecotton’s work is influenced by the Mexican Muralists, the Impressionists,
the Fauve School of Art and the California Figurative movement. Her images use the
rich, deep earth colors as well as the muted pinks and greens of Mexican artist Rufino
Tamayo, one of her inspirations.
An artist for more than 40 years, Ms. Whitecotton works in many media including
collage and mixed media, watercolor and encaustics. She divides her time between
Tucson, Arizona, where she works in plein air, and her Albany, CA, studio.
