Priscilla Beadle, a jewelry artist, conveys that it is the hunt for beads that compels her to keep designing bead jewelry. Chunky, eclectic, unafraid of color, often ethnic, her necklaces are bold displays of adornment. She creates centerpieces that are antique, odd, or textural, that lead the eye through an array of beads anchored by a unique clasp.

Jan Walker, an award winning watercolor artist, has been painting since the 1990's. She loves to layer her watercolor paint and watch the colors blend together on the paper. Jan loves the spontaneity of the process and becomes totally immersed in the journey. The result is a brilliant, colorful work of art, painted with a loose stroke, that washes bright light across her subjects.

“If endowed, the secret workings of my mind and soul find expression from within, content inspired by that inner vision through light and darkness, color and form, suggested and delineated, illuminated by that inner vision.

After the nightingale song, under the curve of the milky moon, before the spread of the ivory fan: the Nocturnes.”

Her use of color and dimension are reflective of realism. An award winning artist, Patricia Newton has always been intrigued by the essence of light, luminous color, expression of a face, warm gentle breezes, the smell of citrus or salty air.

Etty Klinger—Guest Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for August 2010: “Coastal Dreams”

A Special Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, August 13th, from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square


Etty Klinger is opening her exhibition of watercolors in her show, “Coastal Dream.”

Etty has been painting all her life, but her relocation from New York to California several years ago triggered her love affair with landscape painting. Etty photographs constantly, but generally will use a reference photo as a guide, or a “springboard,” allowing it to remind her of a soft sunset, the rustle of dried grasses, the earthy smell of rain, a quickening breeze. Etty delights in the ever changing skies and rugged coastlines, the majestic hills and vast open spaces... the wild splendor of California’s Central Coast. Her ethereal landscapes are sometimes peaceful, sometimes passionate, but all evoke an emotional response from art and nature enthusiast alike.
