Debi Basile considers herself a colorist and painter. Fine art collage is a delightful medium. Her work incorporates small watercolors, acrylics and scrapes of found papers. She begins with a color idea, a vision and the work evolves into a composition with color as the primary subject. The ideas are fantasy, visions and remembrances from travel both domestic and overseas. While traveling, she paints on location and many of the paintings serve as inspiration for future work. She believes we as humans are symbolic beings and her paintings are the way she views the world using symbols, icons and humor. Debi is a self taught artist and teacher, celebrating magic and the love of life.

Debi Basile’s exhibition can be viewed at the Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month from March 1st through the 29th.

In 2002, Sue O'Connor, painted while residing in Provence, France, for six months, as an artist in residence at the Fourwinds Ateliers (studio), located between Arles and Aix en Provence. This is the area where Van Gogh and Gauguin completed plein air artworks. A studio once owned by Cezanne, located in Aix en Provence, can still be visited by the public.
Sue O'Connor instructs art to children. Not surprisingly, her paintings of children capture the very innocence and beauty of every subject and her landscapes are rich in color.

A special Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, March 11th from 5-8 pm in the Gallery at Marina Square, on the Embarcadero in Morro Bay.

Sue O’Connor’s exhibition “Colorscapes” can be viewed at the Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month of March, from the 1st through the 29th.
