Additional Art in the City Galleries:
James Phillips received his degree in art from Humboldt State University followed by five years as an art educator at the high school level. Working primarily as a sculpture for many years, he now concentrates on large public installations, adding painting and low relief multi-media pieces to his studio activities. Exploring the balance between control and spontaneity continues to be the focus of his work.
Long-time Redding resident David Cook pursued early career interests in portrait, wedding, and commercial photography. These days, he enjoys photography purely as a creative endeavor. His wide-ranging images often capture familiar local places or subjects in the north state while making use of the digital darkroom for expressive interpretations.
Photography has been a passion of Tony’s since his family surprised him with a simple point-and-shoot camera for his birthday in 2006. He has since graduated to a Canon DSLR. Tony has always had an eye for composition. When he sees something he wants to capture, he tries to think of interesting alternatives to how most people would shoot it.
Shasta Union High School District
Artwork by advanced art students from the three SUHSD comprehensive high school sites, EHS, FHS, and SHS were selected by the art faculty at each site. Students are primarily upper classmen with at least two years of experience in the art departments at their high school. Teachers based their selection criteria on technical quality, range of subject matter, and a clear individual voice as demonstrated in the work.
