Exhibition: Edge of the Ocean / A Group Show


// Exhibition on view FEB 19 – MAY 21, 2017

Exhibiting Southern California artists whose artworks are inspired by the San Diego coast.

The artists’ work on view will show their interpretations of the San Diego coastline: capturing the feeling of the sand, water, wind, animal life and plant life, as well as the natural beauty of the shape & form of the edge of the ocean.

The works on view include oil and acrylic paintings, watercolor, sculpture, photography, and more. On opening night, refreshments and appetizers will be served and the wine sale proceeds will benefit Sports for Exceptional Athletes.

Artists on view include Li Huai, an educator at UCSD (whose work deals with issues related to East-West cultural interaction), Stefanie Bales, who teaches Art and Design classes at Platt College (whose mixed-media paintings celebrate feminine serenity in seascapes and landscapes), and Sherry Krulle-Beaton, who holds an Environmental Design degree along with her art studies (whose work is representative of expressionist and abstracted elements of nature).

  1. […] The Sparks Gallery will be presenting the Southern CA Sculpture exhibition through March 5. You’ve also got a short while left to take in the group show Animalia, which in its wheeling celebration of the animal kingdom makes, we’d say, a very nice companion show to the San Diego Natural History Museum’s Photo Ark that we recently profiled here at the blog. Animalia continues till February 12, to be followed up by an exploration of San Diego’s seashore called Edge of the Ocean. […]
