We are thrilled to welcome Connie Rodriguez to our gallery! Connie’s background is in Art and Psychology, and her art is heavily influenced by dreams and the imagery from them. As a contemporary artist, Connie is inspired by nature, dreams, and the mysteries of both. “My attention and passion continues to be captured by the surprises that occur once the paint begins to inform me of what will happen next. Just like the night time dream, painting is a waking dream and just as we are receivers of the dream and its imagery, the story on canvas is told not by me, but by the images themelves.”
Connie works mostly with acrylics with mixed media, exploring bold colors and different textures and dimensions. We hope you come visit the gallery soon to see Connie’s beautiful and fascinating paintings!

Our gallery members are always up to something! Sonja Hamilton has been teaching free plein air classes in Yosemite Valley for many years. She just finished her weeklong class in May. What a bonus for Yosemite Valley visitors!
New to our gallery is painter and Interior Designer, Priscilla Alden Roach. Priscilla has taken these two skills and combined them into a love for resurrecting discarded furniture pieces. The creative process starts the minute she comes across that old dresser, chair, stool, bowl, etc. and doesn’t stop until she finishes designing and painting it. Each piece she creates requires many, many hours of preparation, designing, and painting. Each piece is unique. Inspiration for her art comes from flowers, fruit, vegetables, animals, fish, insects, American Folk Art, and ethnic patterns from around the world as well as her surroundings in the beautiful foothills of Northern California.
Priscilla graduated from Stanford University with a B.A. in Fine Arts. She has won awards at the state and local levels, and her work can be found as far away as India and Ireland. Come to the gallery and see her extraordinary artwork!
On June 15, 2017, our gallery will be hosting the Auburn Chamber of Commerce Mixer from 5:30 to 7:30 in the parking lot adjacent to the Auburn Old Town Gallery. This is a fun way for local business owners to network. Or come and meet some local business owners. There will be finger foods and the gallery will be open right next door!!
