A reception for a show of work by students of LeeAnn Brook’s 2016 Painting Workshop Retreats will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday at Nevada City Winery, 321 Spring St., Nevada City.

Featuring paintings that explore the various techniques taught in Brook’s workshops, this show covers a range of styles from representational to abstract and mixed media, including work from students who have followed Brook’s workshops for consecutive years. Several student drawings from Brook’s drawing class will also be featured for the first time.

“I never imagined that I would love teaching as much as I do when I started over 12 years ago,” Brook said.”I not only love inspiring students to reach their goals in becoming better painters, but I also enjoy encouraging and supporting them at any level. It’s extremely gratifying at the end of a year to see work produced in the class hanging in a final show, as this is the first time showing for many students.”

Owner of LeeAnn Brook Fine Art gallery and studio in downtown Nevada City, Brook has painted in acrylics for over 40 years and has taught workshops for the past 12 years. Her experience as a professional painter brings a unique opportunity for students to learn firsthand. Her demonstrations and one-on-one coaching focus on learning the basics of working in acrylics while covering materials, color, design and technique.

Brook has recently been contracted by the Jackson Art Association in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and will be a featured Visiting Artist Workshop presenter. She will be giving a two day workshop called “Inspired Painting” held on September 12 & 13 at the art association’s facilities. For more information visit http://www.artassociation.org

Her next Painting Workshop Retreat in Nevada City will be focused on abstract and mixed media painting, held at the Nevada City Veterans Hall on Sept. 24 and 25, from 10 to 3 p.m. each day. For reservations or information on her 2017 workshops visit http://www.leeannbrookfineart.com/workshops
