  • Lois Stecker Photos

    Lois SteckerCloses March 25th
    Gallery Hours This Week, Thurs.-Sun.  noon-4pm

    Lois Stecker was a San Diego-based painter and photographer who passed away last September, at the age of 92. Lois was well-known in the regional art scene; for over four decades she attended virtually every art opening in town, and always brought along her camera to photograph art and artists. What people may not know about Lois is that she was a compulsive photographer, who used her camera to record everything in life that she loved: family, friends, parties, art, food, pets, flowers, her house, the world. As a result Lois left behind her many many thousands of photos… far more than her family knew what to do with. Read more.

  • Architects by Force

    Maria Teresa Fernández

    "These photographs depict a dialogue between form and material, between the patterns and textures, all of which combine with the wild range of colors to create a cacophonous dialect.

    Terri Hughes-Oelrich

    "Oil wells, derricks, pumpers, oil islands are beautiful in Huntington Beach, CA, my childhood city. Over our backyard fence, a gated oil pumper rocked up and down most days.

As I returned to visit my hometown with my children, I noticed the drastic changes from when I was little." Read more...

    "Serendipity put tools in my hands and I trained to be an artisan. My furniture refused to stay furniture. It spoke in ironic quips. It asked questions. It made statements.

    Rattle and Hum is an interactive, room sized installation. The viewer enters a narrow gallery to find what, at first glance, appears to be a post-minimalist sculpture: Two identical steel cages, each containing an imposing rusted steel panel, are placed opposite each other.

    Art Produce Gallery

    2009 Orchids & Onions jury comments:
    "When artist Lynn Susholtz renovated the old North Park Produce building into Art Produce, her plans included a "pedestrian art gallery." The long and narrow space has storefront windows along University Avenue, where the art is part of the street, the art viewer is also on display, and the activity of the street becomes part of the experience of the art. Places like this are fundamental to the experience of walking in the city.  Read more...

While this work shares similarities to my earlier domestic contraptions and playgrounds, it suggests movement and travel outside of the home." Read more...
