The Southern Oregon Guild & Bridgeview Winery proudly present, ART IN THE VINEYARD, a *new* Guild Member exclusive art gallery at Bridgeview’s newly renovated Tasting Room in Cave Junction! Kicking off our new gallery, Sheila Mason will be displaying a solo collection of her landscape paintings and sculpture. Join us on Saturday April 15 from 5-8pm for a FREE opening celebration as Sheila will be available to discuss her artwork, inspiration, and answer any questions. Light appetizers will be provided along with a variety of Bridgeview wines available for tasting and purchase. Bridgeview specializes in German varietals such as Pinot Noir and Riesling. They currently have a gold medal award winning Oregon Pinot Noir that has received a 89 point rating with Wine Spectator and is a great value!
Sheila Mason is a self-taught artist who lives in the mountains of the Illinois Valley of Southern Oregon. Her textured landscape paintings celebrate the flora and fauna of the Siskiyou & Kalomiopsis Wilderness, specifically the Pacific Coast Redwoods. Painting to her is about allowing the mind’s eye to stand among the trees away from the hustle and bustle of life’s minutiae. With each piece, Mason invites the viewer to join her in smelling the forest and hearing the sounds that abound there. She incorporates 3D textural elements into many of her 2D works. Tree bark comes alive and extends off the canvas through her unique application of thick gesso and plaster. She seeks to refresh the viewer and touch the soul, reveling in the glory among the calm and wonder of the trees. Sheila Mason’s work is currently on display at the Southern Oregon Guild Gallery in Kerby, Oregon.
