Luminescent paintings capture the magic of China Camp State Park
“Refuge,” a solo exhibit of paintings by Janey Fritsche. This new body of work integrates figurative exploration with life on the water. Seeking to escape the day-to-day trauma of current events, Ms. Fritsche found peace and tranquility at the beach, in particular China Camp State Park. Says Ms. Fritsche: “There is magic where the land meets the sea, the melding of conscious and subconscious.” Her dazzling oil and ink paintings capture the essence of that magic through luminescent color, and deft handling of light and dark values. Her work expresses joy, wonder and relief in the restorative nature of the seashore. We invite viewers to experience the transformational power of the ocean, through these engaging paintings. The free exhibit runs through April 18 and is open by appointment. Visitors can schedule their preferred day and time online here.
