Whiskeytown National Recreation Area 2010 Artist-in-Residence Jacqueline Moses will present an informal lecture this Saturday, September 11th, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at Vintage Wine Bar & Restaurant Conference Room, 1790 Market Street in Redding.  This free presentation is supported by Hawkman Studios as part of the 2nd Saturday ArtHop.

Jacqueline has participated in multiple national parks’ artist residencies, including Acadia National Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park. Jacqueline’s large landscapes often border on the surreal, with the juxtaposition of objects incorporated into the scenes. This unique technique adds an additional layer of meaning for the viewer. “Art is my mode of expression, the way I communicate my ideas and feelings to others,” stated Moses. On the heels of a recent exhibition at the Illinois State Museum, Moses will stay at Whiskeytown from September 10 through September 24.

Those in attendance will also have an opportunity to meet and talk to artist Mary Ellen Croteau.  From Chicago, Croteau’s art is strongly influenced by issues that affect women.  She has exhibited extensively in the United States as well as in Europe, Korea, and South America.  She has been reviewed in the New York Times, the Village Voice, and the Sacramento Bee, and has had her work appear in Ms. Magazine and The Artpaper.

The Artist-in-Residence Program at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area is sponsored by the Friends of Whiskeytown.

Mary Ellen Croteau is from Chicago, Illinois and in addition to her many exhibits and lectures she runs a non-profit inner city gallery.
