“Moments of Peace: A Family Show” Featuring artists Jane Belden, John Stewart, and Kira Young
With cool mornings and changing leaves, September brings opportunities for restful reflection and family connection. “Moments of Peace: A Family Show” features siblings Jane Belden and John Stewart with Jane’s granddaughter Kira Young. With over 100 collective years in professional art between them; Jane, John, and Kira display artistry through the decades with professionalism and refinement.
Jane is an artist and teacher, former gallery owner, published author, and freelance writer. She was born in Southern CA but has been involved in the arts community of Trinity County for over 35 years. She serves on the board of directors for both the Highland Art Center and The Trinity Players Inc.
John Stewart studied at the Famous Artists School in 1956; received a scholarship to Chouinard Art Institute of Los Angeles in 1958; and later attended the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, CA. John’s 25 year career as a Scenic Artist for the entertainment industry included projects for television, motion picture, and stage productions at Disneyland, Disney World, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom. In his retirement John still enjoys creating fine art using many mediums, and also composes music. He plays piano regularly at the Gaia/ Woodside Grill and at the Oak River rehab home in Anderson once a month.
Kira Young received a bachelor’s degree from San Diego State in Marketing and Art. Her work was recently shown at the Vintage Wine Bar in Redding and at the La Bodega Gallery in an all-female Art Exhibition entitled “VENUS.” While Kira’s subject matter varies, elements of playfulness and whimsy are prevalent throughout her work. Her personal mantra emanates from her paintings: “Do something to make the world a better, brighter place; and help others find happiness and beauty in the hardships of their life.”
Join us for this heartwarming exhibit from 5 – 8 p.m. Sept. 1. The show will be on display during normal business hours through Sept. 30.
