REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - The Caldwell Gallery presents “Figures in a Landscape” watercolors by Diane Lee Moomey
is a painter, sculptor and writer living in Half Moon Bay, California.
She has shown claywork in Ontario and Quebec, Canada, and since moving
to California in the eighties has exhibited cut-paper sculptures, brush
drawing and hand-made books. For the past decade she has worked almost
exclusively in watercolor. Diane is also a poet, and that work informs,
and is informed by, her art.
Artist’s Statement about her current body of work:
large series of watercolors depicts, in color and form, the invisible
portions of our world: the way in which different combinations of the
five elements creates distinct layers of phenomena; the portals or
doorways that open between one stratum and the next; the pathways that
the inquiring mind might take to visit these alternate spaces and
return intact. It also portrays the visible spectrum: as feminine
energy in the forms of goddesses, dryads, dakinis and
everyday women; as the energy of the natural world in the forms of water and plants, birds and bears.
imagery is a fusion of both Asian and Western mythological and
philosophical thought: the archetypes and symbols made visible in the
many renditions of the Tarot, those that stem from the Goddess
religions, those appearing in the traditions of Northern Buddhism and
the ancient Bon religion, some from the Judeo-Christian traditions. All
these elements have nourished my own spiritual journey and appear in
personalized form in this series.
I have compiled these images
into a deck of Journey Cards to be used for intuitive readings, with a
companion book containing information about each image, explaining how
it might be used in both traditional and non-traditional spreads.”

The Community Gallery, located on the lower level of the Hall of Justice building will be showing
“Inflection Points” by Redwood City artist Laurel Bergman from July 1 to September 28.
“Inflection Points” collection of Laurel Bergman’s work embodies
several different turning points. She first began to notice nature’s
examples in the garden this spring seen in the iris series. Things can
reach a certain point then turn sharply in another direction.
local artist, Laurel has been working with watercolor and acrylic for
over 15 years. Water medium allows the fluid movement, luminosity, and
balance that characterize her paintings. Many paintings in this exhibit
embody inflection points in her artistic development as she continues
Ongoing study with masters of water media forms
Laurel’s solid background. Stephen Quiller, internationally recognized
for use of water media and color, has been Laurel’s inspiration for
many years. Mike Bailey provided grounding in composition and tehnique.
She is grateful to these and many other teachers for encouraging her to
experiment and trust her own vision.
Laurel is a member of the
Santa Clara Watercolor Society (SCVWS), the Sequoia Art Group and
several art critique groups. Her paintings have been exhibited at the
SCVWS Annual Shows, The San Mateo County Fair Fine Arts Galleria, the
Pacific Art League, Redwood City Library and City Hall, and the Redwood
City Annual Show, where they have consistently won awards. Many
paintings have been purchased by clients and friends across the country.
