Jay Bonestell & Mary Velasquez—Featured Artists

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artists’ Exhibit for May 2011

A Featured Artist Reception will be held Friday, May 13th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square


















Mary Velasquez creates the appearance of oil paintings from photographic images taken of the Central Coast. These images are generally deeper in tone and texture, representing a more formal interpretation. Each image is made into a giclee reproduction on canvas. Each of these giclees on canvas are textured and five coats of UV varnish are applied to ensure archival quality with the look of an oil painting. Mary’s gourds are grown outside her studio. Each gourd is a unique canvas and shape with variation in design. Mary often utilizes reeds, pine needles old jewelry and car parts to embellish these wonderful gourds!
