First Tuesday Artwalk heads into March with Fawn Bailey, a mixed media artist in the SF Bay Area, working from studio 101 in Sausalito’s historic Industrial Center Building.

Bailey’s work is evolving as her bold, saturated abstracts transition to earthy expressionism while using lines and pattern to convey the natural boldness that earth bestows.  

A common thread throughout her work is the use of shapes derived from the natural world, including fungi, lichens, plants, and geological formations, inspired by her youth in the NY Catskills and her studies in the sciences.

Bailey’s use of multiple media and varying techniques including monoprinting, collage, layering, and unique mark-making in her art imbue a feeling of sensual depth and a visually tactile experience that draw the viewer in for a closer look.

Bailey currently resides in Mill Valley with her husband, two sons, dog and cat. Her work can be viewed during open studios or by appointment at her Sausalito studio.

Bailey will be showcasing her ”Landlines’ work on the walls of the Mill Valley Chamber’s space at 85 Throckmorton Ave., including a reception on Tuesday, March 5, as part of the Mill Valley Arts Commission’s First Tuesday Artwalk (5:30-7:30pm).
Aside from the First Tuesday Artwalk, the Chamber’s office is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 12-4pm.
