Opening Artist Reception

4th Exhibition @

WE WILL HAVE 2 RECEPTIONS   12:30-1:45 & 1:45 – 3:00






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

Kene Lohmann

Opening Reception
Eleventh Exhibition


@ O’side Bakery

Thursday, February 20th from 6:00 – 7:30 pm

Born and raised in North San Diego County, Kene Lohmann grew up painting since early childhood, developing his passion for watercolor. He was privileged to study under noted San Diego County watercolorist, Thelma Speed Houston.

Kene later spent a number of years in Hawaii, where he continued to study, paint and exhibit his works. His colorful landscapes invite the viewer into the painting for a visual escape. His love of nature and the world around us is captured in his works that dazzle the eye with their intense color palette. “I strive for that emotional reaction connecting the viewer to my work,” states the artist.


Kene’s watercolors are treasured in many private collections throughout the United States and Europe. His watercolors have earned numerous awards in juried shows and exhibitions. A portion of Kene’s sale are donated to different children’s organizations throughout San Diego County.

Kene will be donating a portion of any sales to

Studio Ace where he teaches classes in watercolor.

Dawn Tappen

Opening Artist Reception

Tuesday, Jan 27th, 2020 1:00 – 3:00 PM

                    Third Exhibition @ Blade 1936



Dawn Tappen is an abstract painter who lives and works in Oceanside, CA. She received her B.A. at California State University of Northridge. Initially planning to pursue illustration, she spontaneously took an abstract painting class and became captivated with the freeing process of discovering the unknown, by layering and excavating paint to allow her creations to unearth and emerge in an organic process. With no expectation of the outcome, Dawn makes marks and layers, choosing colors intuitively as she allows her paintings to come to life. Her choices of mark and color are made in the moment, and even if not a completely evident part of the finished result, are part of the beautiful end creation in all of her work.


Ms Tappan has always been fascinated with nature. Taking adventures into the woods, turning over stones and collecting the creatures that were underneath are some of early childhood memories. Dawn reflects, “I picked up and analyzed everything. The endless shapes and sizes never ceased to amaze me, but it was the color, the endless color that drew me in”.
Through many transparent layers of paint she creates the translucent colors found in nature. Then like an archaeologist excavating a new site, she sands into my painting to reveal the layers of color built up through time. Creating a window through which the viewer can enter into the history of the painting. “It’s like being a child all over again, the excitement of unearthing something new and beautiful.”


El Camino High School Art Show & Reception

Tenth Exhibition

El Camino High School                                      Student Art Reception

Friday, January 17, 2020


“O’side Art”

El Camino High School Art reveals to the viewer a collective and multifaceted prism of students’ imaginations in our very own community. Their art reaches out from the Valley to the Pier and beyond, to showcase fantasies, dreams, and wonders. The oeuvre of traditional two-dimensional images you are viewing, ranges in style, media, and dimensions. The constant of the work, however, is our students’ unlimited creative potential in a world of constant technological change and diminishing imagination.

El Camino High School

“The Art of Photography”



Here at El Camino High School, students begin their photography journey with the basics of taking pictures with cell phones. Afterwards, they start to explore taking high quality photos with digital cameras. Once they have a full understanding of how to capture an image with the correct exposure, contrast, composition and focus, the next step is to add creative edits. With the use of the latest Adobe Photoshop software, students gain new insights as they explore various editing techniques. By the year’s end students have completed numerous photographic works of art that share their creative voice.
