Friday November 3rd from 5 – 7pm at the Bay City Arts Center, November Artist of the Month upstairs gallery will feature work by local watercolor artist, Vlada Clooten. The main floor gallery will feature a diverse range of artwork from the collection of John and Janet Stahl. This monthly event is free and open to the public.

Vlada Clooten was born and raised in a small rural and remote area in Russia half a century ago and was surrounded by quiet and colorful meadows and rolling hills that caught her eye from a young age. She has been drawing, doodling and painting since six years old on almost everything that had a flat hard surface. In 2021, life took Vlada to the Oregon coast. She was completely blown away by the vivid beauty of the Pacific ocean and breathtaking mountains! The inspiration and unlimited desire to paint again after a long break took over, especially this summer of 2023. Watercolor became her almost everyday companion. “I would like to share my work with you, my unknown audience, and I very much hope you will enjoy my watercolor in November this year.”
