We are pleased to announce a debut exhibition -- “An Ocean View” -- a juried show of California coastal fine art with an emphasis on the South Bay/Palos Verdes area of Southern California. This exclusive representational show will take place October 16-30 at Riviera UMC, 375 Palos Verdes Blvd., Redondo Beach, California. Artwork will hang in the Ocean View Room and adjoining spaces. Cash prizes for Best of Show, First, Second, Third and Honorable mentions will be awarded at the opening reception to take place Friday, October 16 from 5-7 p.m.
The exhibition will be juried by esteemed artist Joseph Mancuso, a master pastelist and oil painter from Southern California. Mancuso is a signature member with the Pastel Society of America, and in 2007 The Pastel Society of the West Coast elected Joe to "Distinguished Pastelist." This is one of the highest honors to achieve as a pastel painter. He is also a member of Oil Painters of America, Laguna Plein Air Painters and The Pastel Society of Southern California. His work has been published in the Pastel Journal’s “The Year’s Best” in 2004, 2005 and 2009. His collectors have included film producer Lawrence Kasden and actor Kevin Nealon. His work has exhibited in the Napa Valley Art Museum and hangs in private collections throughout North America.
