Plumas Arts cultivating culture & community

Amy Rose Moore to Exhibit at Plumas Arts Gallery in April

The Plumas Arts Gallery, located at 525 Main Street in Quincy, will host a reception Friday, April 1, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm for artist Amy Rose Moore, a gifted painter with a local connection.

Amy Rose Moore was born and raised in Westwood, California. The bulk of her artistic education took place at Westwood Jr. Sr. High, where she graduated in 2001. She currently lives and works in San Francisco, California.

Skillfully rendered in pencil, ink, and watercolor, Moore's work is playful and lighthearted. Photorealistic birds emit visual warbles of hearts and fish, while a wolf is circled by ethereal pale green butterflies. Threads of Moore's love of nature and her childhood in Plumas County run through all of her work. She says, "I am primarily influenced by the vast forests and mountains of my childhood. To grow up here is to have your heart and mind forever connected to these mountains. Home will always be felt and remembered by the sound of wind in the pines and the steady stream of birds’ songs wafting on a warm summer breeze up from the lake."

Moore is excited to show her work locally in Plumas County. She comments, "The portraits and personalities that take shape under my pen and paintbrush evoke a sense of nostalgia, not just of my youth, but of a commonality-- of universally shared emotional spaces and fondly remembered narratives."

In addition to her original pieces done on handmade tonal watercolor paper, Moore will bring a selection of matted prints and her wonderfully whimsical greeting cards. More of her work can be viewed on her website at

Moore's work will hang at the gallery for the month of April, 2016. The Plumas Arts Gallery and office hours are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 11am to 5pm, and Saturday from 11am to 3pm.
