Winfield Gallery

Carmel-by-the-Sea, California

Farraday Newsome is pleased to be newly represented by Winfield Gallery, located in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.  http://winfieldgallery.com


From the gallery’s website:

Winfield Gallery was founded in 1989 by Christopher Winfield. Our principal focus is the representation of contemporary art by established, mid-career and emerging artists whose diverse practices include painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics and photography.

The gallery hosts multiple exhibitions a year and maintains a deep commitment to promote our artists’ careers. We collaborate with museum curators, produce catalogs and books, establish relationships with the press and continue collector education and development. We work to create an atmosphere that builds bridges between the creative work, collectors and art enthusiasts at all levels.

Winfield Gallery also specializes the resale of select works of art from the 20th century by artists and offers an effective and confidential alternative for the resale of important works of art from and on behalf of private individuals and institutions.

We were delighted to spot these street banners near the Tempe Arts Center in Tempe, Arizona. The sculptural bird torso by Farraday Newsome was in the Gallery at Tempe Arts Center 2015 exhibition Birds of a Feather.

Street Banners in Tempe, Arizona

Above: This is a mature, flowering weeping Santa Rosa Plum. We hope ours looks like this some day!

We’ve added a few more fruit trees to our desert garden: a Weeping Santa Rosa Plum and two Big Jim Loquats. They are in the young “edible forest/mixed use” area of our yard where we’ve planted a variety of fruit trees among native Sonoran trees like ironwoods and mesquites. The taller, native trees will provide filtered light and relief from the intense summer sun.


We were inspired to plant this way by the mixed-use, edible forest at nearby Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park where there is an orchard planted in the creekside forest across from the Clevenger Cabin, once home to Robert Clevenger and his family in the early 1900‘s. The Clevengers attempted to make a living there by truck farming, but left in the early 1920‘s. A variety of citrus, figs, jujubes, and other fruit trees are still growing in a loose, seemingly random plan among cottonwoods and other tall Arizona natives.

Our two young loquat trees are the short plants with long, dark green leaves. Their watering basins are obscured by the large amounts of woody mulch.

Above: Our newly planted Santa Rosa Weeping Plum has a bermed, 6-foot wide watering basin filled with approximately 6” of woody mulch. The tree is still short and stick-like, lining up with a  larger, background mesquite in this photo. We bought our tree from Greg Peterson’s Urban Farm program, a local source for fruit trees and education on growing fruit trees in the  desert. https://www.urbanfarm.org

Farraday Newsome, with her mother Barbara Newsome, is holding a catalog of Christopher Winfield’s paintings. Christopher Winfield, owner of Winfield Gallery, is a painter as well as a gallerist. To see examples of his work, click http://winfieldgallery.com/artists/chris-winfield/
