Glen Maxion Pastel

Glen Maxion
Pastel Beach Scenes
Glen Maxion is an award winning artist whose work depicts the people, beaches, light and color of Southern California. Glen's artistic studies have been largely self-directed and his work spans more than 25 years. He began his career working in watercolor using quick gesture drawings as the foundation for minimalist studies in rhythm and color. Today he works primarily in soft pastel and oils, and carries over the spontaneity and energy of his earlier work to more complex compositions. The figure remains the principle subject of his art. The beach has replaced the studio as the backdrop for his inspiration, and San Diego beachgoers have become his un-choreographed models. Glen is a popular teacher of soft pastel at The Art Academy of San Diego and works in his studio in San Diego from field notes and candid reference photos.

Her pleasing domestic subjects, tranquil landscapes, bold florals and unique, lively animals, figures and portraits appeal to a wide audience. Clark is an award-winning artist with works in private collections nationwide and in Europe.  Although Clark’s expertise is watercolor, she is proficient in many other art media and techniques. Her style has been strongly influenced by the brilliant use of color of Wayne Thiebaud and Fritz Scholder and the landscape and figure works of Gauguin, Degas and Cassatt.Susan Clark currently resides in Escondido, California. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Arizona State University and has been teaching art since 1973. She has taught students from age 3 to 90.  Susan taught Adult Education art classes for 23 years, then middle and high school art in Vista, CA for 16 years.  After retiring as a full-time classroom teacher in 2015 she has enjoyed going back to teaching classes in Painting and Drawing through Escondido Adult School

Carol Thomason April

Lines Of Communicatin by Carol Thomason Carol Thomason Carol Thomason uses fluid acrylics, watercolor, collage, pencils and watercolor crayons to create the mixed media paintings in her non-objective series she calls "Lines of Communication."  The series is about the Internet, cell phones, computers--the communication technologies. Using traditional design principles with an innovative, experimental approach, she creates compositions that draw one's attention from a distance...and textures that delight the eye up-close. These paintings have won more than 70 awards locally and nationally in major exhibits with National Watercolor Society, American Watercolor Society, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and San Diego Watercolor Society. Wishing to share her enthusiasm for creating art, Carol has taught classes and workshops for the San Diego Watercolor Society, Rikki Reinholz Studio of Design, San Dieguito Art Guild, Clairemont Art Guild, and Gateways Gifted Enrichment Program, San Diego Unified School District.  Carol has been a juror for the San Diego Watercolor Society, the San Diego Art Institute, San Diego County Fair, California Cinema Art Walls Project, San Dieguito Gallery, and Mesa Community College.

Her work is part of the permanent SDSU collection and for the past seven years has exhibited over 30 paintings at the SDSU Student Health Center.

Roberta Dyer, Mixed Media Oct 10, 2017

Pink Hat mixed media by Roberta Dyer Roberta Dyer

Roberta grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. Visiting the High Museum of Art and going to the fledgling Piedmont Park Art Festival, she imagined her paintings would one day hang between the artists she so admired.
She attended Vanderbilt University, earned her BA in Art History and returned to Atlanta after graduation where she continued pursuing her passion for art, taking classes at the High Museum and Georgia State University in her spare time.
Moving to San Diego in 1971, Roberta took art classes as time would allow and has since enjoyed many forms of expression from sculpture to copper enameling, oil painting to mural assignments. Today, she focuses on figurative subjects in watermedia/ collage, that lean towards the abstract and non-representational, with an occasional foray into landscape and florals.
