Two watercolor paintings of artist Lynda A. N. Reyes will be featured in two California exhibits in Brea, Orange County and San Francisco
“An Afternoon Stroll at Venice Beach”, a transparent watercolor painting done on a full size 300 lb. Arches paper was juried into the 30th Annual Made in California Juried Exhibition of the City of Brea Art Gallery located at 1 Civic Center Circle, Plaza Level in Orange Country. The exhibit will be on view starting March 28th until May 8th, 2015.
The exhibit will celebrate the proud tradition of displaying works from artists all over California selected from over one thousand statewide entries. This multi-disciplinary survey of art features artists working in all mediums and highlights established artists in their quest for new creative movements in the California art scene. A three-person panel of experts from the Orange County area selected 69 artists to display their works in the 6,500 square foot exhibition space of the City of Brea Art Gallery.
The show marks the third national exhibit for this painting of a typical California summer afternoon on the beach walk. “An Afternoon Stroll at Venice Beach” was first exhibited in the Aqueous 2013 of the Kentucky Watercolor Society and in 2014, it was chosen for the MTWS Water media Exhibit at the Bigfork Museum in Montana.
Lynda will participate in another juried exhibit at the Arc Gallery on 1246 Folsom Street in San Francisco from May 2nd until June 20th, 2015. Her watercolor painting titled “California Mom” will make its debut in this themed exhibit titled “Fusion” at the ARC Gallery. The statement about the painting reveals why the painting vividly supports the theme of the show: “Forever connected. Boundaries do not exist in the fusion of 2 living bodies. A mother and child ready to trek yonder. Where?…Someplace farther to further connect…”
The juror of the ARC exhibit is Olivia Ongpin of Luna Rienne Gallery in San Francisco. Arc Gallery & Studios occupies the former location of New Langton Arts Foundation, which closed in 2009. The partners of Arc Gallery are pleased to carry on the tradition of the space as an arts venue contributing to the vitality of the diverse South of the Market (SOMA) neighborhood of San Francisco.
2015 continues to be a most promising year for Lynda. As her Resume indicates, she has participated in five museum exhibits and her paintings have been featured in different national and international shows in Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Montana, Kentucky, Maryland, Wisconsin, Colorado, New York, California (Berkeley, Salinas, Orange County, Monrovia, Bergamot Station in Santa Monica) and in Canada. It seems that Lynda has an exhibit every month and that her watercolor or oil paintings continue to capture the attention of both jurors and viewers in different parts of the US. In a span of more than six years, Lynda has truly been moving on and on into the mainstream of American art. She resides and maintains her studio and gallery in Glendale, California.
