Earlier this year, I was fortunate to take part in the exhibit to benefit Save Mt Diablo at this same gallery located in downtown Danville. This exhibit is a juried competition curated by Philip Linhares, Chief Curator Oakland Museum , Oakland , California
The juried competitions at the Milligan Gallery are intended to provide local, regional, national and international artists with professional opportunities to exhibit while engaging the communities at large in a diverse selection of mediums and subjects.
The goal of "Imagine California"is to gather art that inspires discussion about the California experience.
Zuma Canyon was painted in Malibu. I liked the fractured nature of the ridges in Southern California. They have a weird geometry all their own. Our ridges are older and covered in mud, with beautiful flowing lines. This Canyon was fun to paint with sharp angles and an odd juxtaposition of shapes.
There were 19 artists selected, including several bay area artists I know and admire: Bill Carmel, Ruth Beeve, Susana Scarborough , Gary Stutler and Charles White
The reception is Saturday October 9th from 5 to 8.
The exhibit runs October 9 to November 20th.
Milligan Gallery 408 Hartz Ave DAnville, 925 309 4648
Hope to see you at the reception.
