A few of the artists who will exhibit at Union Depot:
Rachael Cain: Photographer
Rachel Cain has been a photographer for over 15 years. Her subject matter is varied, with a special focus on old buildings, texture, architecture, landscapes and birds. A defining, signature quality of Rachael’s work is that she aims to get to the essence of the subject, eliminating distracting details. Rachel enjoys the post-processing part of her work, using it to emphasize essential qualities. For more information or to see samples of work, visit http://cainrachelr.wixsite.com/rachelsphotos.
Juliet M. Parisi: Painter
A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Juliet M. Parisi creates organic, surrealistic images inspired by the natural beauty around her. She graduated from Humboldt State University and has been painting for more than 15 years. Growing up in California exposed her to a wide range of cultures and she was constantly surrounded by all different wonders of nature. Those early experiences influenced her body of work, Juliet M. Parisi Creations, which she describes as, “beauty through chaos.” For more information or to see samples of work, visit http://julietmparisi.wixsite.com/creations.
Lynn Pauly: Watercolor Painter
Lynn Pauly’s watercolor paintings are visual records of the places she loves most, including downtown St.Paul, Paris, and Tuscany. She was an elementary school art teacher for 35 years, before retiring in 2016. The following year, Lynn studied watercolor painting under master artist Majid Modir in the Tuscan village of Volterra. She calls her practice “urban sketching” and she records her travels and everyday life with pen, ink, watercolor paint, and occasionally photography.
