Big River Valley
Returning to familiar and beloved themes, Phil Gross presents “Peaks and Valleys,” a show of new oil paintings at The Artery in downtown Davis.

Phil's work illuminates the regional beauty of California's Central Valley-from the banks of the Sacramento River as it winds through fertile farmlands, to hidden sloughs and irrigation canals, to the winsome cows that graze the fields. His frequent treks in the Sierra Nevada mountains are the inspiration for further compositions that capture the rarified alpine air of the high Sierra. Using a deeply saturated color palette, Phil's work produces vivid imagery that conjures the shimmering heat and scent of lush summer farmland, and the cool, crisp air of mountain peaks.
