The Arts & Cultural Foundation of Antioch is presenting the works of artists living in and around the Delta at the Lynn House Gallery. The Delta is nature at her finest. Between the views of Mount Diablo, rolling hills, colossal bridges, and breathtaking landscapes, artists have found an abundance of inspiration. The Nature’s Canvas Exhibit will feature nature, in all mediums. Artwork will also be for sale.
Participating artists are: Nordyn Anderson, Gary Augustino, Lori Azzolino, Steven Bloom, Gloria Cannon, Prudence Capelle, Sandra Carrigan Berkson, Jo Cotarelo, Clyde Cox, Jean Cucuel, Laurie DiMaggio, Michele Eakin, Ezra J. Engle, Betty Espindola, Sandy Gangwer, Lon Givens, Easy Gonzales, Danny Grace, Kathleen Henderson, Carol Jurczak, Karen Kelly, Kay Kirby, Jolynn Lacasse, Ellen LaVaccare, Julia Offord, Patricia Puryear, Alma Renko, Nancy Roberts, Lisa Salazar, Paul Schorr, Carol Sideman, Julia Starr, Joel Summerhill, Ken Tomlin and Beverly Turner.
Gary Augustino, one of the artists participating in the show, finds his inspiration in the clouds. His company, In Flight Camera, provides beautiful aerial photography of California’s Delta north of Sacramento to south of Fresno, out to the Monterey coast and up to Santa Rosa, the Napa Valley to Arcata. It’s a viewpoint not many people get to experience and provides a different perspective on nature’s beauty.
“Nature never lets me down (pun intended) when flying/shooting this diverse area of California,” says Augustino.
The aerial artist has selected two images for the gallery, “The Earth’s Rainbow,” and “Ballet on Water,” each with unique color and shape; one from the Bay Area and the other from the Delta.
“These images are infused into metal plate to bring out their vibrant colors and preservation,” says Augustino.
Jolynn Lacasse is another artist who will be presenting her work at the Lynn House Gallery.
“Conservation photography is my focus,” says Lacasse. “I like doing volunteer photography for the local wildlife refuges and I am currently volunteering for The Center of Biological Diversity.”
