Stop by Serenidad Gallery to see the watercolors of Harriet Young Priska and Rachel Dowd Bentley. Harriet is “painting the town” and preserving the pioneer charm of Escalante with her work. She also offers drawing lessons in this studio. Her 2017 calendar of “Escalante’s National Historic District” will be available along with cards with her paintings and drawings. Rachel painted homes, historic buildings, and schools in northern California and Gold Rush Nevada for 45 years until she passed in 1991. Many of her paintings are for sale.
David and Brigitte moved to Escalante in 1996 from Berlin, Germany. David’s Sculptured Furniture echoes the organic forms of the Red Rock Country while Brigitte’s Primitive Pottery is inspired by prehistoric cultures of the Colorado Plateau. Their work can be seen both at the Festival Vendor Hall as well as in their studio during this open studio.
