No stranger to the Fine Arts and the intricacies of art galleries, JACK CHRISTIE is one of our region’s most recognized artists. For many years he owned and operated the upstairs art gallery in Yuba City’s Hillcrest Plaza known as “Christie’s Fine Art and Framing.” As a ten year old, he began drawing and painting and later honed his skills at the California College of Arts and Crafts. His late wife Diana encouraged him to seriously start painting again in his forties. Since then he has sold over 160 paintings and prints, and has shown work in local galleries, art shows, fairs, and Sacramento art clubs. Many of his oil paintings and watercolors depict rural farm buildings and tractors. He especially likes painting things that spark joy in his life. Recently, his focus has been painting watercolors of owners and their pets. Attention to detail comes through in all his sublime paintings.
Self-taught fused glass artist Tim Darrough goes by his artist name of T. ROBERT DARROUGH. He was born in Marysville and has been a Yuba-Sutter resident all his life. Ever since he wandered into a glass shop as a young man, he knew then and there that he would someday create beautiful glass designs. The intense desire he felt at the time led to his passion to create art stemming from his love of vivid colors, blending them to bring joy and pleasure to others. A recipient of many awards for his exquisite glasswork, including KVIE’s 2017 Art Auction award of Best in Class, Tim has exhibited his work in Sacramento art galleries and in galleries here in the Yuba-Sutter area. Be sure to view his stunning creations during the month of June.
