Aleta Wynn Yarrow

Aleta Wynn Yarrow, Guardians
Acrylic; 18" x 36"

This month, West End Gallery showcases Aleta Wynn Yarrow. At first glance, our work may not seem to have a lot in common- For starters, Aleta’s is often bold and colorful; mine, well, not so much. But our work shares, I think, some essential themes: An appreciation of nature’s beauty, of the value of quiet places, quiet times, and the importance of mysteries and dreams. Aleta’s work has always seemed to me to be both uncompromisingly personal and consistently positive, and I Dream of Ordinary Things continues to reflect these qualities, too. The show will be up through January 10. For more, visit Aleta’s website.

More on quiet places, time alone at G. C. Myers’ Redtree Times.

I have always considered Aleta as maybe the purist artist I know and remember over the years being consistently humbled by her work and its truth.
