How can a lifelong career in art make a difference? This is the question that was on the mind of Nevada City fine artist LeeAnn Brook over two years ago. With nearly 40 years in the field of graphic design, photography and fine art, Brook felt a strong desire to utilize her skills in a form that could not only leave a legacy, but also offer a vision. The result is her new book called “Points of Inspiration: An Artist’s Journey With Painting and Photography,” which will be featured at a show at Nevada City Winery opening on August 1st. Brook’s newest collage paintings will also be in the show, including several that are highlighted in the book.
Brook will be taking orders for the book, offering signed, limited editions at a discounted pre-sale price at her opening on Nevada City’s First Friday Artwalk at the Nevada City Winery on August 1st, from 4 to 6 p.m. She will also be on hand to show preliminary galley proofs of the ambitious project, with the printed book available by December 1st. The pre-sale offer will be available through November 15. Her opening will be on August 1st from 4 to 6 p.m. For more information on her work, visit www.leeannbrookfineart.com or contact her at 265-6817.
