St. Helena artist Dinah Cross James’ colorful, large format abstracts will be on exhibition in the Lobby Gallery of the Firehouse Arts Center. In her words, ” My journey and my art are the same. Everything I do is connected whether it is a trip to a remote part of the world, climbing in an active volcano, or enduring the loss of family. Every day on the journey brings a new experience filled with challenge and fulfillment. Even in great pain and loss I find beauty will surface if you allow it. ”
