“I didn’t realize that I have been a member of West Coast Drawing(previously San Diego Drawing Group) for seven years. We do a group exhibition once a year on average and this one is awesome. On exhibit at the Oceanside Museum of Art it is our first museum show! The reception is Saturday, July 17, 2010 at 2pm.”
INTIMATE VIEWS: West Coast Drawing
OMA Parker Gallery, June 12 – August 13, 2010
Drawing, in all its diversity, is an end, not just a means. In this exhibition some of San Diego’s best artists working in drawing media will display varied “intimate” subject matter in styles ranging from photorealism, to total abstraction, and expressionism. Meet the Founder and the President of West Coast Drawing Saturday, July 17 at 2:00 p.m. Founder Karen Rhiner and President Mick Phelan will speak about the history of the organization and the theme of the exhibition, followed by a presentation of drawings by some of the member artists and culminating with the presentation of the Platinum Pencil award to a well known member of the community supportive of drawing as a fine art. The talk is free with museum admission and complimentary for OMA members. Intimate Views will be on view June 12 through August 13, 2010 in the OMA Parker Gallery.
West Coast Drawing is a collective of artists that work to provide inspiration, artistic support, and career advancement for outstanding artists working in drawing media in the San Diego area. They promote respect for drawing as an art form by providing information and mounting exhibitions of members’ work. The group was founded in 2003. Each member of West Coast Drawing conducts a productive professional art career apart from the activities in this organization. For this exhibition each member of West Coast Drawing has given careful study to the concept of “Intimate Views” and has used drawing to create a work of art reflecting this interpretation.
