Mowen Solinsky Gallery

Nevada City’s Mowen Solinisky Gallery lost one of its owners over the weekend, John Mowen.  When searching for the words to honor his life and art I decided the best way to convey my thoughts was to share some photos of his work.  If you’re not familiar with John’s sculptures stop into the gallery, open seven days a week at 225 Broad Street.  For more information about John’s passion for art click here and here.  John’s messages were always peace, beauty and art, so let us celebrate those in remembering his life. Mowen Solinisky Gallery, Nevada City

    I was so sorry to hear of John’s death. His gallery and his art gave this artists’ community a hub, and a sense of continuity in a place of seasonal changes and disruptions. I really admired his ability to promote artists and make art and hope that his legacy will live on in whatever way seems right. Rest in peace.

    We were so sorry to hear about John. He was an extremely talented artist and a wonderful, gentle man. His passing is a loss for the whole community. We are fortunate to have one of his metal sculptures. We really treasure it.

    I will miss John. He was an extraordinary artist and his continuing search for artists to represent at Mowen Solinsky Gallery was an ongoing endeavor. I respected him as a man, artist and Gallery owner. Always his integrity was at the forefront and he was a “believer” in the artist’s continuing quest for authenticity and originality. I believed in him as he believed in me. Peace to him and his family!
