We are very pleased to present Liana Stienmetz, The Generous Hours: Contemporary Landscape Paintings from the California Coast.
Liana Steinmetz’s passion is taking her paints outside and capturing a moment in time that expresses the drama of expansive landscapes. A native of Marin County, she grew up where the redwoods meet the sea and miles of grassy hills touch the bay.
In 2002, after graduating with a BA in Anthropology, Liana was feeling lost in our current fast-paced culture. She found relief, and a sense of belonging, by spending time in nature; the more time she spent, the better she felt. She began documenting her strong connection with nature, through painting. She continued furthering her education in Studio Art and Oil Painting at the College of Marin and Marin Art School from 2007-2012.
Liana is the recipient of several awards and honors, including a number of Artist in Residency Scholarships in Missouri, South Dakota and New Mexico. She has been painting professionally for ten years, having work exhibited in both select group and solo exhibitions throughout the bay area. This is her first solo exhibit an Inclusions Gallery.
