Bolinas-based artist Janis Yerington sees the ordinary as a miracle. For this exhibition, she uses old-world techniques and the chiaroscuro study of light and shadow to create vibrant still-life paintings of West Marin produce, from ripe tomatoes to blue eggs, highlighting the abundant raw ingredients from the local farm stand, the natural food store, and the garden. Her compositions are born as she prepares meals for friends and family, conveying prayers of peace and nourishment.  

Yerington, a Bolinas resident, teaches art at Bolinas and Nicasio schools. She graduated cum laude from Brandeis University in Art History and attended Studio Art Center International in Florence, Italy, and Cambridge University. She has worked at the New Yorker Magazine, galleries, and museums. Her work has been presented in solo exhibitions throughout the US and Europe.
