4 Paintings in 2 Summer Shows – July 15, 2020

These are interesting times for Artists: as we continue to paint many of the opportunities to show and sell our work have been cancelled. A solution has been to have virtual online shows elected by jurors , and in a few instances juried shows where the Art still appears in a real gallery.

In July I have paintings in both of these situations. Beginning July 3rd – Aug. 27th the MBPAPA Signature Artists show is Open to the public at the Pacific Grove Art Center near Monterey. The theme “From Plein Air to Studio” challenged us to take a small Plein Air piece and make it larger in the studio. Honored to have my painting ” Yosemite January 2020″ , in the show with so many talented artists and to be selected by juror Brian Blood.

A Virtual online juried show by the Coastal Art League of Half Moon Bay is online running from today July 15 – Sept 1st. This show titled “Uncharted Territory”, is the Juried All Media Show 2020 of 51 pieces of sculptures, drawings, photographs and paintings. I am very pleased to have all 3 of my entries selected .

“Toward Big Sur from Pt Lobos” 9x 12 in. PleinAir, painted this winter as a rainstorm appeared on the coast. “Incoming Morning Tide ” is 12 x 16 in. PleinAir painted facing into a brisk salt spray during the first day of the Los Gatos PleinAir event in June 2020. Finally a La Jolla PleinAir 12 x 16 in. entitled ” To the Blue Horizon”

About Al Shamble

I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I have a minor in Visual Arts from UCSD where I received my BA in Biology. I am inspired by Nature and love hiking in California's Sierra Nevada and diving beneath the surface of the Pacific Ocean. I enjoy the interplay of painting Plein Air, being an outdoor photographer, and creating paintings in the studio.

    Congrats of course! Seaside cliffs are hard to depict – these examples are terrific!
