Tombaugh Gallery features artist Cheryl Lynn Nelson in November


The Tombaugh Gallery will host “YUPO Watercolor Abstracts,” an exhibit by artist Cheryl Lynn Nelson that opens with an artist reception 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 7, at the gallery, 2000 S. Solano Drive. The show continues through Sunday, Nov. 28.

Tombaugh Gallery, which is part of Unitarian Universalist Church, is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

Nelson’s paintings are Yupo watercolor abstracts, “a compelling and unique alternative to traditional art papers,” the gallery said in a news release.

Yupo is a waterproof synthetic, machine made of 100 percent polypropylene. Due to the extra smooth surface, a fair amount of water is applied, followed by the watercolors, which then float freely across the surface and mix in a random fashion. The artist then moves the paper itself, and unique designs begin to emerge and act as the catalyst for the painting, the gallery said.

“Every painting is a delightful new experience, as well as an incredible amount of fun … as is sharing them,” the gallery said.
