Gallery in Arnold during the month of May.

Arts of Bear Valley is proud to announce the opening of an exciting new exhibition featuring the works of local artists Phoebe and Gene Bryan. The exhibition, entitled “Whimsy in Clay and Nature”, will showcase the duo’s unique and captivating collection of ceramic sculptures and nature photography during the month of May at the Window Gallery in the Meadowmont Shopping Center in Arnold.

Phoebe Bryan’s “Sunflower House” is a whimsical and imaginative creation that invites
viewers into a world of enchantment. This fantasy house is a celebration of, texture, and
playful design.As an artist with a background in art history and psychology, Phoebe stirs an emotional response in the viewer with her work. She enjoys the freedom clay offers to create expressive and fluid structures. Whether it’s inventing a mythical creature, an imaginary building, or an abstract sculpture, her goal is to evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity in those who see her work.

Gene Bryan is holding his “Golden Meadow” photograph that perfectly captures the
beauty of the June Lake area in the fall, where the golden meadow, clear water, and
towering mountains create a stunning and awe-inspiring landscape.Gene is an artist who wears two hats – as a nature photographer and a ceramicist. While he has been doing photography for many years, ceramics is a more recent passion. His inspiration comes from nature, particularly from his time spent in the Sierras, and he strives to tell a story through his photography and express whimsy in his ceramic creations.
