“Figurative and atmospheric expressions emerge in gouache, pastel, powdered pigment, ink and oil, as monotype and painting. The form and content are neither abstractions nor representations, not ornamental nor a likeness, but rather exist as reality unto themselves, providing perhaps a glimpse into that vital inner world of unrealizable dreams, Chimera.”

Craig Kincaid & Karen Peterson—Featured Artists

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artists for November 2013: “Land, Sea, Sky”

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

Craig Kincaid
Craig Kincaid has been looking through a lens since he was 20 years old. Throughout his photography career, he has always tried to capture the light, find the contrasts, and make the ordinary obvious and the perspective unique. Landscapes, shadows, sunrises and sunsets, cloud formations and people provide him with ideas for photographs. Dry vernal pools, lichen, seaweed on a beach, waves breaking on the sand are all wonders that interest him. He marvels at how light creates impressions to delight us all.

Craig specializes in getting into position and choosing the right exposure and lens to expose what he believes is the unique look at the subject. He graduated from USC with a degree in business. He plays music in a band. He travels, hikes, skis, surfs and plays golf. He teaches a film class at the Palm Theatre. He writes songs. If there is art there he is. Craig says, “Make art. Make art. Enjoy art.”



Karen Peterson
Karen Peterson
received her first camera on her ninth birthday and enjoyed taking snapshots of her family on vacations and of friends around her neighborhood. She didn’t consider the artistic aspects of photography until her Dad gave her his old Zeiss Contaflex 35mm SLR when Karen was in her twenties. She began taking the occasional weekend photography seminar (Point Reyes Field Seminars was her favorite location) and joined the Palo Alto Camera Club. Showing and sharing her images with other photographers encouraged her to take her photography in new directions.

Karen began experimenting with Polaroid films, eventually teaching short seminars on Polaroid Image and Emulsion Transfers using Polacolor film. Karen studied traditional black and white darkroom techniques at UC Berkley Extension in San Francisco and hand coloring using Marshall’s Photo Oils. Since moving to the Central Coast in 1999 Karen has been actively involved in the Central Coast Photographic Society and the San Luis Obispo Camera Club, serving terms as President of both organizations. Karen is currently experimenting with various digital techniques including High Dynamic Range (HDR).

Robert Taylor—Featured Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artist Exhibit for October 2013: “Origins of Light: The Central Concepts”

A Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, October 11th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Robert Taylor
My earliest recollections of photography are of my grandfather taking me on photo shoots at the age of four. He let me shoot my own images while all along teaching me about cameras, light and composition.
In school, my studies were always centered around art and light, earning me degrees and certificates in B&W/Color Photography, Graphic Art/Design, Medical Imaging, Radiography and Landscape Design/Installation.

One of my earliest jobs was Forest-Land-Structure restoration along the coast and mountains. While there, I developed a great appreciation of nature and an everlasting love for nature/landscape photography.

Some of my ongoing projects are landscape and nature photography of Tulare, Kern and San Luis Obispo Counties, the 2011 Wildflower Season and Farm and Ranch images.

Friday Life Group—Guest Artists

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for October 2013: “Clothing Optional”

A Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, October 11th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square
 
Every artist who is trained in the classical style begins with drawing the nude figure. This includes people you don*t think of such as de Kooning and Picasso. It also includes da Vinci who dissected corpses to understand anatomy, despite the threat of death if the Catholic Church caught him. It takes a great deal of practice and skill to be able to draw the human form convincingly. Without this skill and continual practice, paintings of the figure will not be believable. Many artists draw the figure throughout their lives.

The Friday Life Group began in 1981 in the studio of an artist in Morro Bay. Within few weeks the group moved to the Morro Bay Recreation Center and the group has been drawing every Friday at the Morro Bay Community Center since it was built. The artists who were there at the beginning include Susan Sears, Rosie and Barbara Rosenthal, Louise DeMore, Frederique Rostofsky Nancy Graham, John Barnard, Gordon Long and Jeff O’Dell. George Gibson, Stephen Rodinoff. Dorla Brebes, Mace Taylor, Walt Wedlock, Phyllis Dorn were also “charter members” but are no longer with us.

We are grateful for all the talented people who pose for our drawings. The sessions last for 3 hours. We begin with five 2 minute poses, three 5 minutes poses and one 10 minute pose. Most of the poses last for 20 minutes. None of them lasts for more than 30 minutes.

De Kooning said that classical training frees you for creating abstraction and non-objective art. All art is dependant on being able to draw well.

The Friday Life Drawing Group’s exhibition “Clothing Optional” can be viewed at Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month of October, from the 1st through the 29th.

Linda Loebs—Featured Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artist Exhibit for September 2013: “The Color in Life”

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

Linda Loebs
Living in California I’ve become intrigued as an artist with the sea and rolling hills of this area. Now my art reflects the landscape of the area, but still retains my deep appreciation for the ever changing sky and the effect of sunlight on clouds that I acquired while growing up in the Northwest. Trying to capture the atmospheric wonder that I see is a large part of my art.

A Thunderous Spring
I’ve used many mediums, but I enjoy working with watercolor and acrylic paints the most. While some find watercolor a difficult medium to work in, I love watercolor’s versatility. It can be very controlled or very loose. When using watercolor I can choose to see what the paint will do, and I think it is this potential for the unplanned that makes it ideal for painting clouds.

Sometimes I combine watercolor with acrylic paint. I can achieve the loose feel of watercolor along with the dense vibrancy of acrylic paint. I love the brilliance of acrylic, as color is what drives most of my art. I don’t have a favorite color, but rather get excited by the interaction of colors. To me colors are like people. Life and art would be plain if we were all alike and there was only one color. It’s the mixing of different personalities like the mixing of different colors that gives interest and meaning to life and art.

Color is such a wonderful tool for creating mood; it can be quiet and subtle or loud and spectacularly intense as it blazes nature’s beauty at the viewer. As an artist I’m forever trying to capture the impact of nature on me, and I hope to share those feelings with others through my art.

Linda Loebs’ exhibition “The Color in Life” can be viewed at Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month of September, from the 1st through the 29th.

Silk Painters International—Guest Artists

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for September 2013: “Sensational Silks II”

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

Silk Painters International (SPIN) is a group that promotes silk painting as a fine art around the world. It has the responsibility of designating artists as Master Silk Painters after they submit an application, complete some rather rigid requirements, and pass a committee of their peers. It is a prestigious honor.

In January of 2011, Stephany Andrews, a local artist who was on the SPIN Board of Directors, met with a group of artists to see if there was sufficient interest in having a local chapter. The response has been overwhelming and we now have 35 members who meet monthly to share ideas, techniques, offer support, and promote our local silk artists. We are now the largest chapter in the world.

Our mission statement: “To promote silk painting as an art form. It is our purpose to encourage artists through the sharing of information and techniques.”

Cat Evans—Featured Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artist Exhibit for August 2013: “Thru Catz Eyes”

A Featured Artist Reception will be held Friday, August 9th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Cat Evans
I remember taking pictures as a young girl, drawn to capture and preserve the moment. I see art in everyday life and photography allows me to capture what I see.

I have attended classes and lectures from gifted photographers and artists, and studied extensively on my own. The knowledge I acquired and continue to seek gives me the tools to make my creative vision a photographic reality. Each of my photos has a story and comes from my heart.

The Magic Is Still There © Cat Evans

From my first Kodak with a cube flash to digital SLR’s of today - technology allows me to capture art in the world around me. I continue to be amazed at what life has to offer.  See MY world…Thru Catz Eyes...

Lani Briceland—Guest Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for August 2013: “Seeking Solace, Finding Joy”

A Guest Artist Reception will be held Friday, August 9th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Lani Briceland
Lani is a California native and resident of the Central Coast since 1996. Her interest in drawing and painting goes as far back as she can remember. Her love of nature has always been her inspiration. Like many of us, her interest in art took a back burner to family and career for a time. In 1996 Lani had the opportunity to take a six-week road trip through the Western States and many of their National and State Parks. The incredible beauty of the landscapes compelled her to dive back into painting. Pastels seemed an obvious and convenient choice for a medium. Since then she has refined her skill as a pastelist. Her landscape paintings are a tribute to nature’s beauty. Also known for her portraits of pets, Lani enjoys capturing the personality and attitude of these special companions. She also creates jewelry and other artisan crafts for sale.

Lani is a member of the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, Morro Bay Art Association, and the El Camino Art Association. In 2010 and 2012 her work was juried into the Brushstrokes Annual Show, and recognized at the Mid-State Fair in 2010, 2011, 2012. Her work can sometimes be seen at the local business and events here on the Central Coast. Lani also creates jewelry and other crafts for sale.

California native Geary Wootten draws and paints representational art. His images are drawn from personal moments in time. Applied in the old Master’s technique of glazing and scumbling, Wootten’s art produces images that, as one client states… “feels like a memory.”

Patricia Newton—Featured Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artist Exhibit for July 2013: “Romancing the Central Coast”

A Featured Artist Reception will be held Friday, July 12th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Fueled by curiosity and imagination, 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.

Patricia was influenced by the professional artists and their work, of family members while growing up.

Simple Pleasures © Patricia Newton

Patricia’s style is representational, utilizing a glazing technique by brushing on several thin layers of oil paint that lend a translucent effect and emanate light to her subjects. Her use of color and dimension are reflective of realism.

An award winning artist, Patricia feels that in the end, it is not how well you paint or the number of accolades you gain, but how much you have grown as a result. Moreover, that the gift of creative spirit is celebrated and shared.

Patricia has painted in oil for approximately 30 years and resides on the Central Coast of California.

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artist Exhibit for June 2013: the Photography of Alice Cahill

An Artist Reception will be held Friday, June 14th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Alice Cahill
In my photography I strive to see with the eyes of my heart, to find the essence of my photographic subjects. With a sense of wonder I explore Nature’s wild places, her textures and designs. My images convey a deep spiritual connection with Nature. I believe the Natural world is a healing force and a refuge from the chaos of daily life. When we are quiet and listen, we can find peace and discover our own inner voice of wisdom.

I have been honored to receive numerous awards for my photography. Most recently I was the Grand Prize winner of Audubon Magazine’s 2012 contest and my photo of a Northern Flicker was published on the cover of the magazine.

Bill Sima is a local orthopaedic surgeon who has been practicing in Templeton for twenty years. After graduating with his M.D. in orthopaedic surgery from USC and subspecialty fellowship surgery from Harbor UCLA Medical Center, he relocated to the central coast where he has been in private practice since.

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for May 2013: “Wanderlust In Color”

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

Stephen Wolfe and family
Working in the medical field I learned that communication is the mortar that holds the bricks of good care intact. Likewise, communication is the glue of success or failure between us all.

The ideas, feelings, reactions that I cannot duplicate with words motivate my art; if I can say it I don’t paint it.

Yosemite Back Country © Stephen Wolfe

Although the language of abstract art is foreign to many, the universality of color, motion and form can be universal. Like music or dance these devices can connect people everywhere with feelings of sensuousness, hope, curiosity and comfort.

Abstract art can connect with people from the corners of the bayous of Louisiana to the metropolitan areas of Seattle.

Each painting is a journey, an adventure. I try to arrive at a place of grace—acceptance and hope residing side by side. Yet each place is an opportunity offering curiosity to the imagination as to what is beyond—a new beginning.

When people see my work hopefully they are provoked to feel or follow their own thoughts to a new place—have their own adventures.

Beth Sargent
Nature's gift to us is the deep connection to it's beauty and mystery.

Capturing moments of wonder is my passion....whether it's the shimmering color of a sunset or the majesty of an owl in flight.

Sharing these moments of inspiration with you brings me great joy.

There is a quote from a poem that says it all for me:

“Let the beauty that you love be what you do”

Deborah Kyle Hintergardt—Guest Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Guest Artist Exhibit for April 2013: “The Livin’ End!”

An Artist Reception will be held Friday, April 12 from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Deborah Kyle Hintergardt
My medium of choice is acrylic. Every so often I’ll try something new, but I always come back to acrylic. It’s like an old trusted friend. For me, painting is intuitive, not academic. Thinking too much always seems to get me into trouble. From subject matter, to color choices, to composition, it’s all about how I feel, what makes me happy, what emotions I want to project. In short, I paint whatever strikes my fancy, however it strikes my fancy. “The Livin’ End,” the title of my show, is a play on an idiom for something outrageous or extreme and my penchant for painting animal “ends” and other quirky subjects with my extreme use of color.

An Artist Reception will be held Friday, April 12th from 5-8pm at Gallery at Marina Square

Susan Wood
I feel so blessed to live in such a beautiful place. Painting outside with the changing light, wind, tides, and temperature certainly has its challenges—and I wouldn’t have it any other way. There is something invigorating about that challenge. The first thing I do after I decide what I want to paint, is to give up. I give up trying to make my painting look just like what I see—that’s not even possible—or at least desirable for me.

Windy Dunes © Susan Wood

I like to get as loose and spontaneous as I can, and I feel when I do that, I get my best paintings. I love the transparency of watercolor, the freshness and the beautiful colors. Watercolor forces me to “go with the flow” because it cannot be worked over and over as most other mediums can. White has to be left white, and once something is down, it’s likely to stay down! Corrections can be made to some extent, but there is always a danger of muddying up the whole thing... when that happens  I just have to start over with a new painting!

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

George Asdel
I decided to do a series of animal paintings based on the endangered species list. Most of my art also includes human beings (which should be on the endangered species list too) However, I usually insert some whimsical element.

I used bamboo sticks of different sizes dipped in black acrylic paint for several paintings and brushes with acrylic color on others. Many of the smaller pieces are pen and ink and water color.

Frog and Fly © George Asdel
My poetry is similar to my visual art since most of it contains some whimsy. Much of my poetry is based on my drawings. All forms of whimsy are endangered in our serious world today, but humor sneaks into the back doors of our brains and helps us deal with the more serious stuff.

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

Kira Fluer Olshefski
Kira Fluer Olshefski is a Central Coast artist residing in Atascadero, California. She feels extremely blessed to be living in such a wonderful area that provides her with a variety of landscape options to oil paint.

Kira has a love for art, antiques and America. Her latest show is called “Reclaiming America’s Heritage”. In this show, patrons will see all three of her loves combined to form multi media art. Kira’s art work is framed in wood from Midwestern barns dating from 1840-1880. Shadow boxes made from reclaimed barn wood not only encase Kira’s art work, but also vintage items representative of her subject matter. Artwork framed in barn wood comes complete with a written history of the barn that was once slated to be lost forever.

Kira’s art captures a moment in time that can never be repeated. Paintings for this show include Central Coast landscapes and agricultural scenes that are a part of America’s heritage.
