  • Greg Navratil

    Greg Navratil purchased a historical schoolhouse near Seaside over a decade ago. There he creates quasi-realistic paintings. In these all-over-paintings, abstraction is not removed from nature. These works concentrate on the abstract and chaotic qualities of nature. The surfaces are covered from edge to edge and from corner to corner. Your eyes are invited to wander everywhere, to follow the lines shapes, and values. Each area of the composition is given equal attention and significance. Colors are applied with small brushes or paint dispensers in thick layers which appear to be haphazard up close. There is a balance between the painting traditions of abstraction and realism.

  • Kimberly Wurster

    Kimberly Wurster, a south Coast resident who, in 1995 shifted her artistic focus from classical cello to painting fine art, paints representational birds, wildlife and landscapes in pastel, watercolor and acrylic. "I spend a lot of time observing birds and wildlife," she says. The habitat in which her subjects are found, as well as strong patterns of light and shadow provide an endless source of inspiration for this artist.
