ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens is delighted to bring you, Falling From The Sky, a showcase of Adam Shaw’s latest works. Falling From The Sky interlaces a series inspired by last year’s total eclipse and heavenly bodies, and a yearlong meditation on the fires in wine country which occurred last October.
A resident of Sonoma County for 17 years, Shaw’s paintings are anchored by wine country. His open-air studio looks out to the Mayacamas Mountains, allowing him to work in tandem with the landscape. From intensely colored layered forms to evening rainwater reacting on steel surfaces and dried roses placed in between wires, the wine country’s presence is embedded within Shaw’s surfaces.
Join us for an afternoon at our Healdsburg Gallery with Adam Shaw in celebration of his artist showcase. In tandem with Shaw's participation in the exhibition From the Fire: A Community Reflects and Rebuilds, we will be hosting an artist conversation with painter, Adam Shaw and Jeff Nathansan, Executive Director of The Museums of Sonoma County.
