Rod Steelman—Guest Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for August 2012: “A Question of Balance”

A Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, August 10th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Rod Steelman

Rod has always been fascinated by geology, rock formations, shells and beach combings.

Out of Rod’s dreams come colorful images of these shapes and forms, at once real, and yet unreal, held together in the most delicate balance, reflecting the uncertainty of life’s passages.

Rod’s life on the Central Coast offers endless inspiration and an overflowing vessel for his explorations of oil, watercolor, sculpture, mixed media jewelry, even whimsical drawings… each seems to hold its own piece of this puzzle of balance.

There is a moment of tension...
a not quite touching...
when the world stands still
and all things are possible.

In that moment exists the question...
collapse and chaos
or balance and growth?

Rod Steelman’s exhibition “A Question of Balace” can be viewed at Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month of August, from the 1st through the 29th.
