By From page B3 | October 11, 2013

Art on the Divide Gallery is pleased to announce that Sonja Hamilton, award winning watercolorist will be the guest artist for the month of October.

The public is invited to a reception on Sunday, Oct. 13 from 1 to 4 p.m. to meet the artist and enjoy art and refreshments. Hamilton will have a selection of watercolors, without mats, specially priced, available for this day only.

San Francisco-born artist, teacher and calligrapher, Hamilton, SWA, is noted for her fluid, concise watercolors — whether landscapes, seascapes or flowers. Her paintings are in private collections worldwide and she has had more than 100 solo exhibits.

Hamilton has taught in adult education since 1967, most recently at Placer School for Adults in Auburn. She has conducted workshops in many countries, with her most recent in France. As a signature member of the Society of Western Artist, Hamilton has served as a juror for numerous art groups throughout California.

“Although I draw and paint in many media, I find watercolor the most exciting, spontaneous and challenging. When I paint, my cares leave and I become totally immersed in what I am doing. Watercolor is exhilarating, yet most relaxing for me — a great joy. It’s who I am,” Hamilton said.

Hamilton will soon publish her first watercolor book.

Stop by the gallery at 6295 Main St. in Georgetown, during October to view the art of this amazing artist and the art of the other 14 local artists.

Gallery hours during October are Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
