CENTRAL/DOWNTOWN GALLERIES


Blue Sky Thinking” by Steve Perrault

Avran Fine Art

Featured Painter: Steve Perrault

Perrault’s “landscapes” of the interior world of the human person are a distinct aesthetic in contemporary metaphoric realism and speaks the language of our times. Architectural metaphors of light and darkness, containment and expansion, inside and outside, promote a sense of place and hope, while asking questions concerning passages, boundaries and vision. These harmonious environments of modesty, honesty, order and calm, allow spontaneous insights and moments of introspection.

As a man who understands a sense of calling, Perrault believes that art is his true calling and the best way to use his gifts to communicate with others. The spaces he creates are free from distractions and exhibit a purposeful pursuit of the minimum. The beauty of simplicity brings the freedom necessary in a search for what lies beneath and above the human person.

SOUTH GALLERIES


Cove Gallery

We are excited to welcome Contemporary California Impressionist, Liz Abeyta, to the Cove Gallery.
 
I love the constant challenges of painting on location as it forces me to pare down grand vistas or detailed scenes to the bare essentials. It is a delicate balance to provide just enough so that the painting is understood by the viewer, while leaving suggested features to the imagination.”
 
 
 
 
October Art Walk will also feature Laguna Beach High School student, Emlyn Griffiths. Emlyn is a senior art student skilled in a variety of media including acrylic, charcoal, colored pencil, and digital. Her complex compositions explore concepts of identity and the influence of social standards on teen girls.

 

 

Fall into the Cove Gallery Thursday evening, meet the artists, and experience a new rotation of original works created by fourteen diverse and accomplished artists.
