Carlsbad CA— The City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office presents Poetic: Artists in Visionary Mode at the newly remodeled William D. Cannon Art Gallery, from June 25 through Aug. 21. Admission is free.
Poetic: Artists in Visionary Mode features the work of three critically renowned artists, Eugenie Geb, Han Nguyen and DeLoss McGraw, assembled by the nationally known and locally based art critic, art historian and author Robert L. Pincus, PhD.
An opening reception for the exhibit will be held Saturday, June 25, from 5 to 7 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
The exhibition is named Poetic because it perfectly describes the exquisitely detailed landscapes and objects in Geb’s drawings, the constructed cityscapes and rooms in Nguyen’s elegant photographs and the lushly colored figures and flowers in McGraw’s symbolic water colors about San Diego.
It has been more than a decade since Geb’s works have been on public view in any substantial number. Nguyen’s elegant series Interiors has not been featured locally since his 1999 exhibition at the Museum Of Photographic Arts and his Model Home series will be on view for the first time in a decade. McGraw’s Paradise project, featuring watercolors and companion essays about the artistic history of San Diego, was published for the Carlsbad Library in 1999 and will have its debut in this exhibition.
Operated by the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office, the Cannon Art Gallery is a focal point for arts and culture in San Diego’s North County, offering a broad range of exhibitions, school and family programs, gallery tours, lectures and publications. The gallery is located, 1775 Dove Lane and is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is free. For information on gallery programs, contact the William D.
