Joseph Lombardi - For The Love Of Art
Please join us as we celebrate the works of artist, Joseph F. Lombardi during the month of August at the Art Gallery at Wilder. Join us for the Artist Reception, Saturday, August 3rd from 2:30-4:30pm.
Lombardi of Manteca has a penchant for painting portals – doorways, gates, windows and pathways that meander somewhere we want to go. His portals are portrayed within intriguing vistas of nature, seascapes and architecture found both in domestic and foreign lands.
Many of his paintings reveal a subtle dreamy quality as if they are telling a story. Lombardi has worked in oils for several decades and won’t be stopping anytime soon. He has 15 oil paintings on display. To learn more about his work go to www.josephlombardiart.ucraft.net.
Grand Opening this month featuring paintings by Judy Chamberlin
The Art Gallery at Wilder officially opens to the public on Saturday, July 6th. The public is invited to attend the grand opening artist reception from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. where light refreshments will be served. Ribbon cutting is at 3:00 pm. City of Orinda officials will be in attendance to participate in the ribbon cutting.
Chamberlin is well-known for her large scale oil and acrylic paintings including figurative work such as portraits, animals and murals plus expressive biomorphic abstracts. The artist says that “synaesthesia inspires me, the idea that we can cross tactile senses, causing our sight of paint color to arouse a taste, a smell, sound. Textures and composition to sing and move. I strive to create paintings that are alive, changing what you experience from viewing to the next viewing. I strive for a mystical experience.”
The solo show will set the tone for future monthly exhibits which are scheduled to rotate on the first of every month.
