ARTS VISALIA May Meet-the-Artist Reception
Joy Collier, California's Giant Sequoias, Found Nowhere Else on Earth
Arts Visalia is pleased to host a Porterville local artist, Joy Collier, with a show entitled "California's Giant Sequoias: Found Nowhere Else on Earth." Joy paints in a post-impressionistic style and works from her own original photography and research in her studio. Her large canvasses of our local Sierra's giant sequoias will fill the gallery space.
Joy states, "The giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) is the world's largest tree. It grows naturally only in a narrow 160-mile band of mixed conifer forest on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California." To celebrate these "very special trees," she presents an "all Sequoia Show featuring some of the most well known trees and groves in Yosemite and Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, as well as a variety of well known National Forest groves, such as the Trail of 100 Giants."
