After visiting the de Young Museum’s exhibit, The Summer of Love Experience on the50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love, Christina Strawbridge has a new appreciation of a movement that changed the world.
Benicia’s waterfront location as a port city in the 1800s, the aesthetics of the Carquinez Strait, water usage, the affects of drought, flooding and more are captured through the lens of local artists in Drop by Drop, an upcoming Exhibit.
The Marilyn Citron O’Rourke Gallery at the Benicia Public Library will feature paintings by Tom Stanton in the exhibit “My Town is a River Town at the Edge of Land,” and the exhibit “Sublime: Prints on Paper,” featuring the works of artists Susan De Haven and Carol Brent Levin.
Graceful and elegant concrete sculptures, showing movement that seems to defy gravity, are “choreographed” by the artist. Oros strives to evoke the connection between heart and mind and “embrace humanness.”
The HQ Gallery, which made its debut in May 2016, is moving from the upper Arsenal to First Street, next to Gallery 621 and the Plein Air Gallery. Artist works include printmaking, watercolors, graphite drawings and more.
