Mark Weidman & Nancy Kay Art Reception

August 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Each month, join us for a free artist’s reception with our featured artists. The Paquette and Diesslin Galleries will be open from 5-7 pm with free hors d’oeuvres, wine, and beer.

Mark Weidman, Salida Ink

Mark Weidman brings a passion for the Great Outdoors to his photography, whether shooting fine art landscapes or outdoor advertising assignments. His images appear in many books and magazines, including Outside, Audubon and National Geographic Traveler.

Mark’s work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian and featured in two PBS documentaries: “Faces of the North” and “Pennsylvania.” His photo essay, “Pennsylvania,” was applauded by James Michener as “brilliantly evocative.”

When not on location, Mark divides his time between studios in Colorado and Pennsylvania. His photographs from around the world are held in many private and corporate collections.

Nancy Kay, watercolorist

Nancy Kay enjoys painting old rusty trucks, landscapes, architecture and unique perspectives of objects.  Painting watercolors has been her hobby for over a decade, and she is now enjoying the freedom to her pursue her creative passion.

“This collection of watercolors includes scenes that spark my creative spirit,” said Kay. “The joy of painting rust and peaceful places is obvious.”

A retired engineer, Nancy spent her career in mechanical design focused on very precise drawings.  Spending more time in the studio experimenting with color and shapes as well as studying in watercolor workshops has helped Nancy ‘loosen’ her painting style. 

Originally from Northern California, Nancy has called Salida home for five years.
