The paintings of award-winning artist Sheila Finch have been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and Europe. She has received recognition from the National Arts Appreciation Program, as well as a prestigious show of work at Picasso’s atelier at L’space Bateau Lavior in Paris.
Finch’s success in the fine arts has been documented over the years by Gold River Scene Magazine’s 1997 cover feature entitled, “Art and The Passion for Collecting,” and again in the winter of 1998, “Sheila Finch, An Appreciation.” Her painting, “Strands of Gold,” is featured on the first edition book cover of The Land’s Wild Music: Encounters with Barry Lopez, Peter Matthiessen, Terry Tempest Williams, & James Galvin, by Mark Tredinnick.
“I’ve been painting for over 49 years now, and as I get older, I find that I am drawn more and more to the strength, grace, and serenity of the land and sea–to the rightness. My latest works are captured moments of vast quiet places. My goal is to create a visual memory of a spiritual moment in time… an enduring and timeless connection to the natural world in which we exist.”
Finch’s paintings are in corporate and private collections worldwide and have most recently been acquired for the permanent collection of the Carnegie Foundation at Stanford in Palo Alto, California.
