New work by Community Artist Pat Preble
New Art by Community Artist Pat Preble is now on display in our Sanctuary Gallery. Pat is a neighbor, a wonderful artist, and a good friend. She has graciously agreed to show some of her artwork in our Sanctuary Gallery for the next few months. She is a wonderful artist, an author, teacher, and icon painter.
She writes: “I have been drawing and painting since I was two years old. When I was in my early teens I became interested in the landscape tradition of painting and did a lot of plein air work. I still like to work on site. The light changes and highlights appear in areas that began as shadow. When finished I am always pleased that over the course of two hours I have captured far more light than could be found in a photograph from a single moment in time.
More info is on her website.
New works by Community Artist Kyle Brunel studio will be on display here for San Francisco’s Open Studios this fall. Watch for more information on this event the weekend of November 4-5. Kyle Brunel is a gifted architect who has worked on every building type from high end residential to laboratories, cleanrooms, and hospitals, Kyle brings the influences of this varied architectural background to her abstract form and color studies. Her paintings are an exploration of what could be, opening the mind to new ways of seeing the built environment.
New works by our Artist in Residence Kyle Brunel will be hung between the stained glass windows and the choir loft will be open with current works in progress. This body of work on display is a continuation of the Urban Organic series that began more than 15 years ago and continues to evolve as abstract studies for organizing water, form, material, light, and greenspace. These paintings are primarily an exploration, meant to open the mind to new ways of seeing the built environment.
