Event to feature work of local artist

An upcoming event will feature the paintings of Grand Junction artist Stacia Baker.

The art opening is set or 5 to 8:30 p.m. May 29 at the former Brink’s Fine Jewelry at 120 N. Fifth St. in Grand Junction.

Baker said the event will serve as a kind of pop-up gallery and feature her paintings in acrylic and mixed media. The event also will offer refreshments.

Baker operates a business she calls Stacia’s Paintings, Truth Be Told.

According to her Web site, Baker is both an artist and family physician.

Baker said she recently went through chemotherapy for breast cancer and found relief from her anxiety through painting. She said painting has become a spiritual practice.
