Silver Lining

SILVER LINING
James Armstrong
January 15th to February 15th

Embrace the serenity of local Sonoma County painter James Armstrong, as we are proud to unveil his premier exhibition with ÆRENA Galleries & Gardens.  Armstrong’s incredible use of metal and canvas to create his iconic Sonoma and Napa landscape scenes are full of magic and sure to transport you right back to your favorite trip to wine country.

Using a limited palette, Armstrong’s skillful use of color creates stunning scenes of cobalt blue mountains, lush emerald hills, and mustard fields, all with a striking contemporary feel.  Utilizing upcycled road signs or aluminum and copper sheet metal, Armstrong will create a full realized composition. The layers of paint are then scraped, sanded, and etched down to reveal the reflective metal underneath, giving light and movement to his work.  The unique material used creates wonderfully dynamic compositions with rivers, ponds, and skies that shimmer and interact with their surroundings.

Throughout his paintings, whether on canvas or metal, Armstrong adds abstraction to his work, distressing and modernizing the traditional landscape, creating scenes that will without a doubt become an instant statement in your home.

James Armstrong has been widely collected, including being featured at the newest Charlie Palmer restaurant at the recently opened Archer Hotel in downtown Napa.  We hope you are just as excited to collect our newest gallery artist as we are to showcase his work.  Please inquire through your art consultant for more information, or visit any of our galleries or view our website to see a complete collections list.
