Original oil paintings by local artists Diana Troxell and Bruce Davidson will be on view at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area’s Visitor Center until February 14, 2009.

The imagery in their works depicts scenes of Whiskeytown. Diana has two pieces on display - a Whiskeytown autumn scene, and a second entitled “Summer of Smoke” depicting Whiskeytown ablaze last summer. One of Davidson’s pieces is his interpretation of autumn in the park and the second one is titled “Sentinel of the Lake” which shows a ponderosa pine standing guard over Whiskeytown Lake.

Troxell and Davidson are both north state artists. Within their work they both express the importance of “creation of light." “I paint on a white background which reflects light through many layers of transparent paint, so my paintings glow," stated Troxell.

The Whiskeytown Visitor Center is located on the corner of Highway 299 and Kennedy Memorial Drive and is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
