Sharon Crabill

After a long closure due to the Covid virus, the Main Event Gallery, 710 Main Street is again opening its doors Thursday, November 5th. County health safety measures will be provided for the safety of visitors.

            Art lovers can leisurely experience a world of light through the luminous paintings of November's featured artist Sharon Crabill of Redding and works in a variety of styles and mediums by Gallery members. The Gallery gift shop offers many smaller pieces of art.


            Crabill’s interest in art goes back to her early childhood years.  She often jokes that she started painting because as a child she could never stay in the lines.  But it was through her childhood attraction to color and shapes that she developed a lifelong love of art. 


            Sharon studied painting and design at Shasta College, figure drawing in 3-D design at the University of South Alabama, Art Production at Tallahassee Community College, Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.  She has also participating in various artist workshops, currently studying plein air painting with artist coach and mentor Stefan Baumann.


            Crabill strives to create the illusion of a moment in time, capturing the effect of light in nature. “The rich buttery feel of oils brings a luminous quality to my art,” said Cahill. “The light sparkles and dances as it splashes and spills over rocks and sand."  She seeks to capture a sense of feeling in her paintings, “Whether it’s calmness of the water or the sound of a riffle or maybe just the stillness of the air around me,” she said. " It’s through this inspirational approach to my painting that I hope to inspire and touch others.”


                        Although interested in all forms of art Sharon works with acrylics, water mixable oil‘s, oil paints and colored pencils. She uses a combination of imagination and photography infused with reflection and light to producer her works.


            Sharon's works include designing book covers. She received an award through a Women’s Refuge design contest for a book cover and she created the book cover design and art for Bobby G‘s book, “The Choice.”  For more of Crabill’s art, go to her website,


            Crabill’s Art will be on exhibit through November at the Main Event Gallery, 710 Main St., Red Bluff. Gallery hours are 11 AM to 5 PM, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  For information:
