more work by Helen Stanley
Helen Stanley's individual style, keen sense of observation and love of process have long distinguished her work. She has been widely exhibited in many galleries including the prestigious Paula Anglim Gallery and William Sawyer Gallery in San Francisco and the Susan Cummins Gallery in Mill Valley. She received a Life Work award by the Marin Arts council and was given a retrospective show at the Falkirk Cultural Center, San Rafael, California.
In December - January of this year, Helen Stanley and her husband Rodger Jacobsen made an extensive trip to Egypt, traveling down the Nile by boat and visiting all the historic sites. They had no inkling of the unrest that was to come in a matter of a week after their departure. Helen kept with her a llittle drawing book wrapped in leather and made drawings of their adventures in beautiful walnut inks. The original journal will be on display along with a limited edition book of the drawings bound in papyrus. Stay tuned for images of the new book.
