David Samuels

1821 Gallery is thrilled to present Fragments in a Paracosm, the latest showcase of dynamic and bold paintings by Central California born artist David Samuels.

The method of exercising... Read the Rest →

 

Dal Henderson

Artist Statement My work is not only about the product, but about the process to reach that end. The differences that occur between one completed piece and another are a result of constant decision making. I deal with materials as honestly as possible, seeking to develop cohesive surfaces. Making a painting starts with a trip to the lumber yard to buy wood, glue, screws, nails and staples for the stretcher bars which I make to stretch the canvas onto. A table saw is used to cut the wood. Canvas is ordered... Read the Rest →

 

Michael Garcia

This outstanding body of work will be exhibited from April 4 thru May 11.  Garcia will be showing 11 new pieces. He creates richly textured works on panels with a process that involves building up layers of paint then tearing them down by scraping, sanding, burning, to reveal a surface that has the abused and weathered quality of an object damaged by time. Garcia’s work reflects his immersion in Japanese culture and aesthetic, from... Read the Rest →

 

Kevin Stewart-Magee

1821 Gallery & Studios is proud to present the impressionistic oil paintings of Fresno City College Painting Instructor Kevin Stewart – Magee. This work is about time, history and memory; forces and influences that are as invisible as the wind, seen best in their effect. None of these objects or places were new, working or occupied, at the time they were painted. For a moment they were quiet performances of light and shadow. Perhaps a cycle of conception, function, retirement and abandonment runs quietly, slowly beneath the surface of our... Read the Rest →

 

Keith Lindberg

1821 Gallery & Studios is thrilled to have internationally known and accomplished Carmel artist Keith Lindberg exhibiting January 3 – February 16. It is hard to classify Lindberg’s style. He has trouble describing it. He came out of art school painting abstract because it was the 1950’s and that’s what was happening, but when he came to Carmel in the 60’s he started painting what appealed to him. It took years to hone his craft, but eventually he developed his own distinct style- -a colorful contemporary combination of abstract and... Read the Rest →
