New in the gallery is Monica Loncola: painter, illustrator and mixed media artist.
Last month we had some extreme low tides which made it possible to walk around large rocks and explore the tide pools at the south end of beach, that is where I met Monica. We were both so excited by all the beauty, we became fast friends pointing out our discoveries. This month I now have more than a dozen pieces of her work in the gallery.
Please come and see her work in person, it is truly amazing.
Judith Lemmens Summertime Ceramics June 23 2017
Judith Lemmen's style is clean and fresh, like summertime. Judith's aesthetics ranges from subtle to bold looks, keeping her designs simple in shape, color and graphics.
Her inspiration can be drawn from fabric, graphic and pattern design, often using elements of nature in her work. Once a theme is emerging, she likes to create different variations on that design, making each piece unique on its own and harmonious in a group. This way his and her favorite mugs can go together without being the same.

Encaustic is Cool. July 18 2015
Encaustic is derived from the Greek word enkaustikos, which means to "burn in." Today I hung 6 gorgeous pieces by Laura Deem. She works with encaustic (beeswax, resin and pigment) and mixed media collage on wood panels. Laura's work has been included in many groups shows and a handful of solo exhibitions in the bay area.
