In August 2017, Venture Gallery proudly presents our featured artist, Tamara Selyangina. Tamara is a Russian-born watercolor artist who grew up in Eastern Siberia near Lake Baikal and has been living in Monterey for more than ten years.
Tamara Selyangina says working in watercolor suits her personality, and she loves it because of the subtle nuances that can't be achieved in any other medium. The spontaneity, speed of execution, and happy accidents with this medium make the process magical and exciting. Being inspired by the beauty of nature, she is compelled to try to recreate it on paper. The Monterey County scenery contributes to her inexhaustible excitement and enthusiasm for painting.
The focus of Tamara's work now shown at Venture Gallery is the breathtaking coastal scenery of Monterey County, beautiful and dramatic local nature, street scenes of Monterey, and the wharfs. We invite you to visit Venture Gallery at 260 Alvarado Street (next to the Portola Hotel & Spa) and view her work and the work of other local artists. We're open seven days a week.
