Double Gold Award winning winery Avanguardia introduces emerging artist Jeff Pleadwell
Local artist Jeff Pleadwell has produced a diverse photographic portfolio of inspiring and emotional images. Jeff uses photography as a means of self-expression and has found that photography has opened the door for him to fulfill the artistic balance in his life. Jeff’s vision eliminates distractions within the image and allows the viewer to see nature as he saw it in the same moment the shutter clicks.
Jeff’s new photo exhibit is of images he has captured of the Deer Creek and Wild and Scenic Yuba River areas.
Capturing nature with photography has been his life’s greatest joy. “ For me, inspiration happens from within when a scene unfolds before my eyes. Viewing it through the camera lens and eliminating the chaos that clutters the image helps me engage more deeply where I am and how I want my viewers’ eyes to move through the image. For me, this is the Magic. I hope these images help others see nature as more inspiring than ever before.”
Jeff’s photography will be on display at the Avanguardia wine tasting room located at 163 Mill St. location in Grass Valley beginning on October 17th. Viewing and wine tasting is available Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday 12-5 pm. Saturday and Sundays from 12-6 pm.
