Gay Summer Rick

“Drawn to the urban coast, my work describes the quiet vibration, energy and movement that I feel as I travel through neighborhoods and along the highways. I have a strong aesthetic identity and connection with sky, water, city, and the roads I travel. Through my chosen medium, primarily oil paint, I convey the moments that leave an impression along my journey. Through my paintings, join me on a misty beach just off the bike path, a lifeguard tower on the sand, waves crashing on the shore, a surfer in the distance, or, driving on a busy freeway with colorful taillights and road signs in front of us, and a glowing sunset in the distance.”

 

 

Marisa Murrow

“I paint and collect visual information on site; producing intimate portraits of California. Inspired by my frequent visits to the coast, my subject matter revolves around densely built housing communities, calm waters, lush hillsides, and boats moving away from urban captivity.  The aerial perspective I work from explores a state of transition; a place existing somewhere between memory and reality.  These isolated moments of time celebrate the adventures of escape and human connectivity. I paint the things people want to omit from their oceanfront properties; other peoples’ homes, skateboarders, trees and telephone wires. The homes depicted in this body of work face the Pacific Ocean like a captive audience, worshipping the waves and the sun as they squeeze their way to the coast.”

 
 
 

Osceola Refetoff

“Osceola Refetoff’s interest is in documenting humanity’s impact on the world – both the intersection of nature and industry, and the narratives of the people living at those crossroads. His current focus, High & Dry, is a collaboration with writer/historian Christopher Langley surveying the human presence in the deserts of the American West and syndicated on KCET’s Artbound.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Theodore Svenningsen

 
“The Railroad Series involves depictions of the works of mankind in the overwhelming, monumental forces of nature where they are dominated by vastness and emptiness.  There is a prevailing loneliness, but the aspect of hope and fullness is always present.”
