In the “Oil and Watercolor Show” Murrieta watercolor artist Susan Keith and Fallbrook oil painter Patricia Fournier Willis will present landscapes, seascapes, florals still life, figures and portraits in Brandon’s Studio 105 wing from July 1-31, 2015.  A public reception hosted by the artists is scheduled for July 11, 5-7PM.

Keith’s paintings, described as Contemporary Realism, incorporate bright colors that catch the viewer’s eye along with the play of light and shadow.  Her award winning watercolors are shown in local and regional shows.

Willis creates artwork that shows her love of color, atmosphere and light.  Viewers and collectors of her art note the emotional connection she has to her subject.

Ring said the competition pitted artists in several media.  Art was developed and completed outdoors with no more than ten percent completed away from the site where painting originated.

The gallery hosts a public reception March 7, 2015, from 5-7PM.  The entire show will be on display in the gallery from March 3-28, 2015.
