lagunaartmuseum #palettetopalate artist Eric Gerdau’s ongoing series Horizons is inspired by the Pacific coast: “These paintings celebrate atmospheric horizons of the natural, exterior world in order to illuminate inner, emotional states. These horizons inquire into the space between lived experience and transcendent imagination to evoke tranquility despite impending change.” Gerdau currently maintains a working studio and gallery in Laguna Beach.

lagunaartmuseum @lagunaartmuseum #palettetopalate artist David McDonald creates abstract paintings and sculptures that fuse the art of the readymade with assemblage, Minimalism, and Postminimalism. Frequent motifs include cubes, cylinders, and enamel-coated cement columns resembling tombstones, in off-kilter compositions that suggest a tension between order and chaos. Sometimes titled as self-portraits, McDonald’s haunting abstract forms can be viewed as surrogates for the self.

lagunaartmuseum A critically acclaimed artist well known for her photo-based oil paintings, Sherry Karver explores in her art a variety of themes connected to the human experience. With their haunting sense of movement, and the spontaneous and random intersecting of strangers, the images become a metaphor for life—where everyone is together, yet alone. In some pieces, Karver layers fictional narrative text over selected figures, drawing them out of anonymity and suggesting their inherent though all too easily disregarded individuality. #palettetopalate @lagunaartmuseum June 12. A few tickets still available.

Sherry Karver is represented by Sue Greenwood Fine Art in Laguna Beach.

lagunaartmuseum Doty/Glasco is the collaborative duo of artists JR Doty and Joe Glasco. Together they create work that explores the passage of time, revisiting nature and the sublime in a contemporary framework. Working with photography, collage, and sculpture, Doty/Glasco mine the intersection of their personal history with the politics of landscape, exploring the aesthetic relationship between locations, composition, textures, and contexts. Join them at #palettetopalate @lagunaartmuseum on June 12.

Doty/Glasco live and work in Los Angeles and are represented by CES Gallery in Los Angeles.

lagunaartmuseum Artist Marcus Thesing is participating in this year's #palettetopalate @lagunaartmuseum. Thesing's love for nature is evident in the color patterns, shapes, and overall organic look of his work. He states, “Keeping the fluidity of the glass in my forms has always been a focus. The layers of glass, color, and negative space invite the viewer to discover the lines created not only outside, but inside the form." Thesing currently lives and works in Laguna Beach and frequently exhibits his work at the Festival of the Arts.

lagunaartmuseum Laguna Art Museum is proud to announce Casper Brindle as a featured artist in Palette to Palate. Casper Brindle’s paintings reveal themselves slowly, bathed in tones that recall the magical half-light of dawn and dusk, where form and space are veiled in shimmering glimpses and murky pools. Essentially, they are sophisticated studies of atmosphere, vaporous ambiguities that intrigue us to navigate the hazy borders of perception. Casper Brindle lives and works in Los Angeles and is represented by William Turner Gallery at Bergamont Station in Santa Monica. #palettetopalate @lagunaartmuseum @casperbrindleartist 2w
