It was a great night at Segil Fine Art in Monrovia where Laura Wambsgans was opening her one woman show, "Peaceful Light." Marian Fortunati and I took the night out with our families to attend. As we walked up to the gallery, a group had spilled out onto the street. Among the gallery goers were Tanya Lazar and Lynne Fearman, two of my travelers to the Big Bear paint out a few weeks ago.
Of course, Laura Segil was there to greet everyone with her usual graciousness. Once I said hello to everyone, I had a chance to see Laura's art. It was an impressive show with an emphasis on trees, canyons and the mountains of Southern California. Laura created many new paintings for this exhibit. Her work is filled with exquisite colors, lovely compositions and great shapes that take the viewer along with her on her artistic journey.
Filled with intimate moments, my favorites were the three painted at Walker Ranch, in the morning, afternoon, and evening. This series especially highlighted Laura's talent with color. All painted at the same location but at different times of day, the varied colors from painting to painting were masterful.
As we left for dinner another couple was purchasing a painting, adding to the red dots that were scattered around the gallery. Laura's show continues through November 28, 2009, so take the time to go and smell the California flowers.
I will be showing three paintings at Segil Fine Art in the upcoming show, "Seventh Annual Small Works Show" from December 5 to December 31, 2009. The artistís reception is Saturday, December 5, 5-7pm at 110 West Lime Avenue, Old Town Monrovia, CA 91016, 626-358-5563. Topics: new_topic
