Gregory states, “Consider that all art is comprised of three primary components; subject, form and content. Upon understanding this, the viewer can begin to appreciate that photography can be used as a tool to capture not only a moment but also to communicate a sense of the sublime as well. I believe that ultimately photography is more than the technical use of a camera; it is, at its essence, the science of capturing then freeing light.”

Patricia Newton—Featured Artist

Gallery at Marina Square Presents Our Featured Artist Exhibit for July 2015: “Way of the Sea”

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

 The Central Coast is full of amazing color and beauty!  From the Golden hillsides to the rugged Coastline, there is an endless supply of subjects to fill the heart of an artist! I count myself very lucky, to be able to live here and have been painting with oil on canvas for over 30 years.  I’m always intrigued by the essence of light, the luminosity of color and potential for creativity!  By utilizing a glazing technique, I apply several thin layers of paint to create a translucent effect that provides depth and emanates light from my paintings.  Every painting tells a story and mine is very much about the Central Coast!

As a child, gazing into the dreamy landscapes painted by a favorite Aunt, I decided early on, I wanted to explore painting with oils!  Although raising a family and a career slowed this goal down a bit I continued to pursue lifelong dreams and began to paint.  I have been painting with oils for over 30 years.

A career brought me to what became another love…. The Central Coast of California!  I planted roots, worked hard, painted when time permitted and raised a family.  I have been a resident of the Central Coast of California for over 30 years and paint whenever there is a spare moment!

I have always been intrigued by the essence of light, luminous color, expression of a face, warm gentle breeze, smell of citrus and salty air.  My painting 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 my subjects.

Patricia Newton’s Way to the Sea oil painting exhibition can be viewed at Gallery at Marina Square throughout the month of July, from June 30th through July 29th.
