GALLERIES:

Corner Gallery

Craig Maize Photography
Craig began using a camera for it’s obvious function – to take photographs.
The more photos he took the more immersed in photography he became. He sought out knowledge in any form that he could find. A practice that still continues today. If his photos have a mission, it is this: to capture the memories of today that you will treasure tomorrow and for the years to come, and present them in a different and interesting way. It may be a vivid sunset, a striking landscape, a beautiful piece of art or a musician expressing his emotion through his instrument. Whatever the subject, it is my hope that these images will stir up unexpected memories and feelings in the viewer. Craig Maize is a photographer specializing in many different forms of photography from portraits to sports to landscapes to real estate and
more. He got his start in photography by taking photos of his friends who were playing in local bands. After booking his first portrait photo shoot he decided to take his hobby to the next level and started Craig Maize Photography. He is dedicated to becoming the best photographer that he can be, spending countless hours learning his trade. His work can be viewed on FaceBook at Craig Maize Photography and on Instagram at cmaizephoto. He can be contacted by phone at 707-367-2006 or by email at cmaizephoto@outlook.com<mailto:cmaizephoto@outlook.com>.

The Corner Gallery will also be hosting Ellen Boulanger, of her show she has this to say: The paintings in this show are diverse and include plein air works as well as those from photos and my imagination. Creativity is my source of of spirituality, a kind of mediation, a way to shut the hasty world outside and enter into a state of complete utter absorption. I paint to bring my love of color and brush stroke to those who enjoy the music it conveys. After a career working with computers, I turned to art. Basically I’m a self taught oil painter, although I have taken a number of painting classes and attended plein air workshops from Bay Area artists. Over the years, I’ve gained a few ribbons from shows I’ve entered and have shown and sold my work in galleries throughout Sonoma, Mendocino and Marin Counties.
