Narsiso Martinez

Narsiso Martinez needed a job so he went back to what he knew – picking fruit and vegetables in agricultural fields. He had worked in the fields as a youngster growing up in Oaxaca, Mexico and found solace among the colors of the apples, the richness of the hues in the crops. Although it was back-breaking work, Martinez relished the natural beauty that surrounded him during the summers.

Alexander Onley

The large-scale oil on canvas paintings by Alexander Onley are born from his own travel photographs - used as subject matter for a series of drawings, from which the painting process begins. This method allows Alexander to understand the subject clearly and enables him to propose the analogies that are his abstractions of environments both natural and man-made. Humanity's complex relationship to Environment is both temporal and timeless. Alexander's work is an individual formal approach to that relationship.

John Hillis Sanders

From the concept to the finished work, John Hillis Sanders finds the process of making art has directed his life. This has kept his interest for over 50 years. His art is about activating space - working with a variety of materials to solve the challenge or problem. When you visit his studio, you will see two installations he is currently working on for an upcoming solo exhibition. He will be on-site along with my friend and fellow artist, Nick Kincaid. He looks forward to speaking with you.

Made of Hagop

Made of Hagop is a self-taught mixed media collage artist living in Venice Beach. His work is an exploration in the concept of synergy: the creation of a whole that is greater that the simple sum of its parts. The source materials of his work come from books and materials dated from the early 1800’s to 1900’s , and are retrieved from public domains and libraries from around the world.

Katie Stubblefield, Jennifer Gunlock & Hilary Norcliffe

Timber/Timbre is the collaborative effort between Long Beach resident artists Katie Stubblefield, Jennifer Gunlock and Hilary Norcliffe. Having known one another and admired each other’s work since their time in CSULB’s graduate Drawing & Painting program in the early 2000’s, this project created an opportunity for the three to combine their unique approaches to art-making and interests into a single thematic installation. Each artist brings an inherent curiosity and whimsy to her work, and explores ways to convey her subject using non-traditional methods and materials.
