Second Saturday Gallery Reception: July 11, 5 pm – 8 pm
The “Naga” paintings are inspired by the spirits of great snakes or dragons that live in the land. Nagas are commonly known in Asia to be protectors and balance the natural elements of earth, water, fire, and air.
For centuries, Nagas have been found in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism traditions. Now, Lynn Zachreson has found them in a remote corner of Mendocino County at the headwaters of the Eel River.
The watercolor series, “Mendocino Gardens,” is a continuation of Zachreson’s figurative work inspired by the female form and local gardens over the past 30 years.
Photographs from Zachreson’s 2,650 mile Thru Hike of the Pacific Crest Trail will be presented in a slide show along with the paintings.
