Carrie Ventola

Opening Reception

Carrie Ventola’s motto – “Do what you love and love what you do, always be influenced by the beauty that nature provides you!”

Raised in Tucson, Arizona and already a well-known artisan and craftsperson in New England, Carrie’s desire to create beautiful land and seascapes took hold long before her relocation to California in the 1990’s.

Her drive to create fully blossomed in California and with her move to sunny San Diego in 2001, she feels she has come full circle.

Carrie has  been strongly influenced by a number of great Southwest, New England, and California artists. Defined by her trademark umbrellas, her gentle and sunny style reflects the beauty, optimism, and dreamlike qualities of Southern California.

                                           

She has participated in numerous juried shows at galleries, corporate facilities, and public institutions throughout San Diego and Orange County, winning many best of show awards. Her paintings are displayed in a variety of private collections and corporate offices, throughout the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.

Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation

Presents Artist Beverly Stuber

Art Showing @ O’side Bakery

     14th Exhibition

Please take the time to check this wonderful art out.  Should you wish to make any purchases please contact  Blake Kern at ocaf.arts@gmail.com

Beverly has been a member of the Oceanside Museum of Art’s Artist Alliance since the early nineties. She has been instrumental in providing spaces for local artists to show their work, first at the School of Art, then Bank of America, then at The Phantom Gallery in Artist Alley, and borrowing the conference room of Main Street Oceanside for the exhibits.

Then Bev worked with Parks and Recreation Department to hold art exhibits at the two Oceanside Senior Centers. With fellow members Mary and Joe Villela the Museum was persuaded to provide exhibit space bi-annually to Artist Alliance members which has turned into some of the best attended receptions and bringing new people to our area.

Bev considers her work to be impressionistic realism. You know what it is but reinterpreted somewhat. Most recently she has worked with Mary and Joe Villela, exhibiting at their Oceanside Art Gallery until it moved from Carlsbad back to Oceanside. Her work has been juried into exhibits at the COAL and Front Porch galleries. She continues to be a member of the OMA Artist Alliance, volunteering as needed.

“TO BE ABLE TO TRANSFORM MULTIPLE IMAGES INTO ONE AND CREATE AN ART PIECE…PRICELESS!”

About the Artist: I was born in Colombia, married the love of my life and raised two high-spirited and happy children. I live in Encinitas, one of the most exquisite cities inside America’s Finest City, San Diego, California.
Passion for photography was inspired by photographing my family. In 2011, I spent 5 weeks in India which allowed me to see the world differently through my camera lens. A new aesthetic was born within me; observation, color, humanity, life energy.
When I returned to San Diego, I toured every nook and cranny of my beloved city and beyond looking through this new prism. After some years and thousands of images collected, someone asked, what are you going to do with all those images? Well, in 2015 I was exposed to Photoshop Artistry with Sebastian Michaels and discovered the endless possibilities of using and incorporating my images into works of art. Inspiration and passion intensified. So my journey continues….

My desire through this medium “Digital Art” is to convey a personal expression more than a realistic rendering of a subject. I love “storytelling” through my art. I use Photoshop to transform drawings and my photography into many different styles of art. It can mimic different mediums – from acrylics to oil and pastels. Just as an artist uses a brush, a sculptor uses clay, I as a digital artist, use a computer screen as my canvas to create…this enables me to explore my imagination in infinitude.

Above is Trombone Fourth of eight Silhouette series. I’m fascinated by Tonal Value, it is an artist prize possession of artistic mastery. This art piece reflects my tonal awareness.

“To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts – such is the duty of the artist.” -Robert Schumann
