Six Decades of Painting

Having lived and worked in the whirlwind of the California art scene from the 50s to the present, Petersen creates art which is a distinctive vision and bold synthesis of the significant art movements of the 20th century.

IN PERSPECTIVE

MAY 6 – 30, 2016

Roland Petersen is a Bay Area painter whose paintings are masterful syntheses of gestural abstract expressionism, painterly realism, and advanced color theory. His work integrates still life, figures, and landscape into complex, architectonic compositions that are beautiful and enigmatic, but still retain a strong sense of place, in this case the fields and farms of California’s Central Valley.

FIRE AND LIGHT

MARCH 11 – 26, 2015

Mirang Wonne’s paintings and screens are at once comforting in their organic warmth and intriguing in their otherworldliness. Her blending of high tech materials with traditional art practices–flame on stainless steel mesh layered with paint, gold leaf and charcoal on paper–creates images which are unpredictably subtle and intimate.

Impressionism Today

Feb. 20 – Mar. 15, 2015

Featuring Dominique Caron, Ken Christensen, John Karl Claes. The influence of the French Impressionists began to reach California by the early 1890s through the travels of East Coast artists and visits of California painters to art schools in Europe and especially visits to the artist colony which was growing around Monet’s Giverny. Early California painters found the Impressionist techniques of plein air painting, bright palette perfectly suited for the bright light and natural beauty of California.
