Gallery Showing This Saturday

For anyone in the Orange County area, come by Santa Ana this Saturday night to see 3 of my fine art pieces in person! 2 of these pieces are brand new and have never been on display anywhere else! It's during Art Walk, so lots of other galleries will have their doors open, too.

Saturday, January 15 · 6:00pm - 10:30pm

Joni Renee's Gallery
923 North Santiago Street
Santa Ana, CA

This will be a show featuring several visual artists as well as musical performances. It'll be a blast, so come on by! I'll be there to say hello!

Exhibit & Opening Reception at IFAC

The Irvine Fine Arts Center, where I hold my Landscape Photography Class, is celebrating their 30 year anniversary with an art exhibit featuring artwork from their instructors. I'm happy to announce I will be participating in this exhibit with a limited edition piece titled "Tide Pool and Clearing Storm."

My exhibit piece is a 20x30 metallic print, mounted and laminated, surrounded by a custom-made black linen liner and a gorgeous wood scoop frame. I made the frame and assembled the piece myself and, if I may be so bold, I must say it is stunning. The piece is quite large and it consists of an entirely new presentation method for me. The print isn't hiding behind glass like your typical framed photograph. In fact, there is no glass whatsoever in this piece. There is nothing standing between you and the print but a high-gloss laminate to protect the artwork. But what does this mean exactly? Better light transmission to and off the print for a brighter, better view of the image. The print is wrapped with a black liner and rich, dark wood frame to further highlight the piece.

There will be an opening reception on Saturday, August 14th from 5:00-8:00pm, then the exhibit will continue through September 25th. I will be at the opening reception (not sure yet exactly what time) and I would love to see you there! If we've never met before, then I'd love to make your acquaintance. If you're a previous client of mine, then I'd love to see you again! Click here for a map to the Irvine Fine Arts Center
