Around Town | Local Artist Naomi Young Holding Artist Reception for Newest Exhibit
Local artist Naomi Young will showcase her vibrant and inspiring artwork in a new exhibit entitled “Portals” that features gateways, openings, doors and windows in acrylics, oil, pastel and watercolor. The solo art show will be on display in Canyon Theatre Guild’s Gallery from August 1st to September 21st, 2019. The public is invited to the artist’s reception on Sunday, August 4th from 4:30-6:30 pm. Guests can enjoy wine and refreshments while listening to live music by talented guitarist, Manak.
Naomi was born and raised in Jerusalem and moved to Santa Clarita more than 40 years ago. She loved art and writing from an early age, but didn’t get to fully pursue either one until later in life. Only 18 years ago, when she registered her youngest son to an art class, she decided to sit with him and all the other kids and started painting. She has not stopped since. She’s been a member of the Santa Clarita artist association for many years.
“Portals” will feature more than 50 paintings that feature various gateways that transport us to new places: doorways, gates, windows, stairs, pathways, and rivers. “Portals remind us of faraway time and places, and they instantly transport us there”, says Naomi.
The Portals exhibit is in the gallery at the Canyon Theatre Guild, who has been producing live theater in this valley for over 50 years. They produce 9 full-scale productions each season, entertaining 30,000 guests. The Andrews Brothers, a delightfully funny USO-style musical comedy show, paying tribute to the songs and heroes of WWII, will be performed from August 10 to September 7.
Naomi Young is a multifaceted international artist and a member of the Santa Clarita Artists Association. Her award-winning artwork has been showcased in exhibitions and galleries and can be seen on her website at www.naomiyoung.com. Naomi’s art, art books, and greeting cards will be available for sale during the reception.
