Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery is featuring the works of Christine McClellan during the month of May.

She will be showing her nature inspired watercolor paintings and photography. McClellan is one of the original artists in the gallery that opened in May 2010.

Gallery artists invite everyone to come to a reception for McClellan on Sunday, May 5 from 2 to 5 p.m. This is a great time to meet the artist, have some refreshments, and see her new works and those of the 18 other artists in the gallery.

She has been an artist all her life and growing up in Southern California, was voted “Best Artist” in high school. She graduated from California State University, San Diego with a degree in literature, moved to Berkeley, then went to California State University, Hayward to get her teaching credential.

McClellan taught kindergarten in Richmond and then at Jackson School in the Rescue School Union District until 2000.

Along with her earlier art training, she has continued to take a variety of art classes at Folsom Lake College, El Dorado Center; Placer County Adult School; and from individual artists.

She moved to Garden Valley in 1989.

She said this is where she belongs because she has always liked nature and loves to be among the subjects of her art works: wildflowers, trees, hills and mountains, clouds and water. She loves working in watercolor because of the way the paint lets in the light and how the pigments mix and flow to make surprising new color blends.

Art on the Divide Gallery invites local artists who are interested in joining the cooperative to stop by and pick up an application. The gallery is located at 6295 Main St., between the fire station and the American River Inn. Spring hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday through Sunday.

For more information call 333-2787(ARTS) or visit the Website at artonthedivide.com.
