Robin Hall will have a exhibit of new paintings at the Oceanside Museum of Art. The exhibit "IMPRESSIONS OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA" runs from May 25, 2010 through July 11, 2020.

OMA Groves Gallery, May 25 – July 11, 2010

Impressions of Southern California presents captivating views of San Diego and beyond from the illimitable coastline to dense urban landscapes that color the city. Orange County artist Robin Hall and San Diego artist Jeff Yeomans will display new paintings of Oceanside inspired by the recent transformation of urban development in the area as well as endearing scenery from Southern California. Meet the Artists Robin Hall and Jeff Yeomans on Saturday, June 12 at 1:00 p.m. and hear them discuss the artistic process behind their artwork at 2pm. Wine and nibbles from 1 to 4pm. The talk is free with museum admission and complimentary for OMA members. Impressions of Southern California will be on view May 25 through July 11, 2010 in the Oceanside Museum of Art Groves Gallery.

The focus of Robin Halls work is capturing the saturated light of California and the drama it creates on surfaces and architecture; giving more attention to how color and edges are affected by light and its absence. Hall’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries including the Laguna Plein Air Invitational at the Laguna Art Museum in 2009, and Sites of Southern California at the Bowers Museum in 2004.

California contemporary painter Jeff Yeomans paints to document California now, to remember the culture and “fabric” of the region. His work ranges from coastal studies to figurative work and urban landscapes. Yeomans recently had his first one-man exhibition at the San Diego Art Institute and in October 2007 Yeomans completed a commission for the Naval Hospital in Balboa Park, San Diego.

For those of us who can't get to the exhibition... I live in the UK, will it be online anywhere? I would love to be able to see it but cannot make it to the live event.

Just wanted you to know I saw you in October's issue of Southwest Art. You're the best artist in that issue in my opinion. You've NAILED the colors and light. I'll definitely start following this!

P.S. Unsolicited advice - first person is much more human and natural when you're using social media like a blogspot. :)
