Western Sonoma County’s Art at the Source was founded in 1995, and this year marks its 22nd year.

Every year, Sonoma County residents celebrate local art with an OPEN STUDIOS event, enabling the art-loving public to view and purchase art directly from the artists in their studios. The artists are present to host you, and available to discuss their art and demonstrate their procedures and techniques.

Linda Sorensen - oil paintings
Linda Sorensen

Linda Sorensen has been drawing and painting the world around her as long as she can remember. In her grade school days, teachers would often catch her sketching portraits of her classmates.

(The teachers were less than pleased.) Undaunted, Linda developed her art from drawings, to tempera, and on into oil paintings, and from realism in her early teens, to abstract expressionism in high school and through college and law school, the latter in Berkeley, CA.

These days, Linda is a studio painter of landscapes that blend impressionism and modernism. She is most pleased to call up the exhilarating moods of the natural world, and human story in that world, by paint.

Linda Sorensen Outward Bound
Outward Bound

She records compositional ideas with her own photography, but frequently alters the scenes, combining points of view, changing light and color. She enjoys studying the works of American Regionalist painters, especially the works of Taos' Ernest Martin Hennings, Iowa's Marvin Cone, Missouri's Thomas Hart Benton and California's Ray Strong, and enjoys museum trips to view works by California's painters of the past.

Linda and her husband Dan Rohlfing are owners of Bodega Bay Heritage Gallery, specializing in Early California Art and also featuring Linda's paintings.

Linda's favorite painting locales are the coastal and pastoral scenes of Sonoma and Marin Counties, the beaches and mountains of Hawaii, and whenever possible, the deserts and canyons of the Southwest.

Jean Warren - watercolors

As Jean Warren looks toward her artistic future, she says with confidence that she's never felt she's arrived. With wide bright eyes and an unmistakable smile and an adventurous spirit, she confidently says, "I'm always striving for that 'next,' whatever that next is."

Jean recalls when she was a child, her grandmother would ask, "Jeanie, would you make a picture for me?" Of course Jeanie eagerly agreed and her grandmother displayed her paintings all over the house. Later, Jean's teachers encouraged her more and she came to see herself as a painter. She was always looking at shapes, natural rhythms and colors in the natural world and expressing them in paint. She says, "After a while, I just had to do art, it was part of my life."

Leaves of Time

Today Jean recalls how important encouragement was to her, so she in turn encourages her students that they can do it. Jean believes they too can know the joy of exploring what is around them and "make a picture," just like she did as a child when she was encouraged by her grandmother.

Jean says, "I learned to leave some things unsaid in a painting to let the viewer complete the picture with his or her own experiences."

She says, "Representational images spark the interest in the viewer while the abstract involves their experience and interpretation. It always has been my goal to challenge the static image, to paint more of what's going on, both on the surface and below the surface, drawing on people's different levels of consciousness."

When teaching watercolor, Jean says, "The one thing I love to get through to my students is that watercolor is so versatile, it gives you ideas what to do next, to be able to to respond to what the paint is doing on the paper is a gift watercolor gives us like no other medium seems to do.

All the accidents that happen, things which weren't planned for ... getting my students to see they're not mistakes ... but that's where the art comes in, taking it forward from that point on."

Along the way, Jean has learned from some of California Watercolor's best painters, Millard Sheets, Milford Zornes, Robert E. Wood and George Post.

Molly Lipsher - pastels
Molly LIpsher
Molly Lipsher

Molly Lipsher ... "I believe places have a perceptible soul, imbued by layer upon layer of cultural, physical and historical impact. These aspects of place converge with more temporal elements of light, location and time to capture my imagination. I attempt to interpret this soul, the layering of elements that makes each place and moment unique.

Painting the landscape allows me to ground myself in a particular place and time. It is a moment of connection with the mysterious spirit of light, and the unexplainable incarnation of “things”. To plant oneself in a location is to become like a plant itself, experiencing the passage of the sun, the warmth and cold, the dappling of light and its disappearance.  As an artist, recording this, in the moment of its occurrence, you become a crucial part of the process.

Molly Lipsher Painting
The Invitation
Molly Lipsher Painting
Making a Point

There is a certain comfort in that, that stopping of trying to understand what is not understandable, and a transition occurs to the pure experience of it, the participation in it.  Then I begin to paint, to take it under my skin. "

“I use pastel, because I love the depth and vibrancy of the color,

qualities I have not found in any other medium. The sticks I use are nearly pure pigment, with almost no binder or additives in them, so the color is intensely rich, and since pastel is essentially a compressed powder, when applied to a surface it appears to absorb light rather than reflecting it, giving it a luscious, velvety appearance that I find so seductive.

Pastels accommodate both sketching and painting, allowing the variation in stroke and technique which can be seen in my works. They can be applied thickly, or in a sketchy, abstract manner, allowing me to respond to the mood of a specific scene or circumstance.

Pastels allow for a fresh and spontaneous application, so relevant for outdoor painting. When conditions are shifting quickly, I can lay in large blocks of color with the sides of the sticks, allowing a fast and immediate responsiveness to the

ever changing conditions of light and shadow.

I often camp on location, to experience the transitional character of a place under different light conditions and different times of day, exploring the unique light, shapes, and colors, and the mood that can be expressed in their various manifestations.”

LA's Autry Museum & the
Gardena High School Collection of Art
Gardena High School

Beginning in the 1920's, graduating classes from Gardena High School in Los Angeles gave the school a work of art created by one of Southern California's then-contemporary artists. Over the years, the tradition continued, resulting in an astonishingly stunning art collection.

LA's Autry National Museum exhibition of the Gardena High School Art collection runs through October, and includes nine paintings, with works by Maynard Dixon, James Swinnerton, Jean Mannheim, Franz Bischoff, John Frost, Joe Duncan Gleason, Edgar Payne, and Jack Wilkerson Smith, among others.

Gardena High School Exhibition at the Autry Museum

Nearly a century ago in 1919, Principal John Whitely suggested that the graduating class of Gardena High School create a class project of raising funds to purchase a work of art for the school. From his simple idea, great things began to happen. In 1928, LA artist Hanson Puthuff suggested that the Gardena High School students organize a "Purchase-Prize Art Exhibit." At the exhibit approximately one hundred California artists of note were invited to display one painting each. From the pictures exhibited,  an art jury composed of seven artists and critics selected ten paintings. The senior class of 1928 then chose the two they wanted for their gifts  and awarded two purchase prizes of $400 and $300 respectively  to the artists. The exhibit was so successful in attracting artists and stimulating interest among Southern California art lovers that the venture was  repeated in 1929 and every year until 1956!

For 37 years, the tradition grew, and included events such as exhibitions, teas, studio talks and dinners, where artists, students, faculty and alumni all participated.

The program was most successful. Not only did the school gain an extraordinary collection of California Art, but it provided an excellent learning opportunity for students and teachers, parents, alumni.

Everyone involved enjoyed learning directly from many of California's best artists. A few students were inspired to become artists, while many became art lovers, enthusiasts and collectors.

Gift of the Summer Class of 1927

Two of the most stunning paintings on display at the Autry are James Swinnerton's Betatakin Ruins and Maynard Dixon's Men of the Red Earth.

In the Navajo language, Betatakin means "house built on a ledge." The Anasazi people built these cliff dwellings inside this enormous alcove, 452 feet high and

370 feet across. Swinnerton's composition of Betatakin Ruins uses the graceful curve of the natural arch as a frame for the Anasazi dwellings within. He captures both the geological and human history of this very sacred place. The Betatakin Ruins are located in the Navajo National Monument near Kayenta, in north east Arizona.

Dixon's Men of the Red Earth was inspired by a trip to Taos, New Mexico. The folds in the blankets worn by the two figures reflect the folds in the landscape which is their home.

Jean Mannheim was among the first to establish a studio in Pasadena, where he held an annual exhibition of his work. These became, according to one critic, a cause for genuine pilgrimages by art lovers, including some who would make the trip from Gardena.

Gift of the Class of 1934

(From a catalogue published by Gardena HS in 1956) "When the class of 1923 visited the studio of Jack Wilkerson Smith, he was painting a High Sierra scene of dazzling lights and melting snow. The students were so interested in the picture that the artist promised it to them and some months later, Lingering Snows was unveiled in the auditorium by Mr. Smith. It has since become one of the most admired pictures in the collection."

Gift of the Winter Class of 1928

John Frost made frequent trips to Palm Springs during the winter months, and truly loved the spirit embodied in the quiet simplicity of the desert landscape. A well-known image in its day, his painting was featured on the cover of several tourist magazines, including California Southland and National Motorist.

The Gardena High School collection is much larger than the the nine paintings currently on exhibit at the Autry National Museum in Griffith Park. Also represented in the collection are works by Ralph Davidson Miller, Hanson Putuff, Orrin White, John Hubbard Rich, William Wendt, Paul Lauritz, Elmer Wachtel, Dana Bartlett, Carl Oscar Borg, Clarence Hinkle, Maurice Braun, George R. Shariff, Robert Clunie, Frank Tenney Johnson, Alson Clark, Carl Runguis, Clyde Scott, Armin Hanson, Peter Nielsen, Agnes Pelton, Emil Kosa Jr., Clyde Forsythe, Jessie Arms Botke, Millard Sheets, Milford Zornes, and Sam Hyde Harris. The website has a slide show that is more extensive.
