Pamela Wilson Pamela Wilson’s works of art transcend the commonplace to enter the realm of the sublime and otherworldly. She develops haunting images that evoke moods and memories inspired by real life, and which create a remarkably compelling narrative. The physical and emotional isolation of her characters has emerged as a hallmark of her work. She has much to say of the dark and hilarious absurdities we must often endure... while we are creating ourselves. Primarily a figurative painter, Wilson has worked in many other mediums, including photography, printmaking, and assemblage. She received her MFA from the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she was awarded a Regents Fellowship, the Abrams Project Grant, and a Regents Award for her Thesis Exhibition. She is currently Mentor Faculty at Laguna College of Art & Design, Laguna, CA, as part of the MFA Program. Wilson has exhibited consistently since 1992 in galleries in New York, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, California, and Santa Fe. She has been included in many museum exhibitions, including the National Museum for Women in the Arts, Washington DC, and a solo exhibition at the Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, NY. Her work is included in many prestigious collections. She is currently represented by Evoke Contemporary Gallery, Santa Fe, NM, and Sarah Bain Gallery, Brea, CA. Hope Railey I was born in Metairie, Louisiana in 1976. At the age of 20, I left Louisiana and relocated to Northern California to pursue an education in the arts and to begin an intensive study of the foundations of figurative drawing and painting at the Academy of Art San Francisco. It was there that I was first exposed to the representational paintings and the natural palettes from the mid to late 19th Century. Some of these artists include Emile Friant, Cecilia Beaux, Sargent, William Merritt Chase, Zorn, and Sorolla. This discovery would send me on a journey to develop my esthetics as an artist and to view the world with a subjective eye. In the years since my journey began I've had the privilege of studying with Burton Silverman, Warren Chang, Zhaoming Wu, Huihan Lui, Brian Blood, Laurie Kersey, Randall Sexton, and Glen Orbik. Drawn to the human figure, my paintings explore the private moments and environments of my subjects. I love catching an emotion or thought in my sitter and translating it onto canvas. I'm drawn to limited palettes and subtle lighting that is often found in natural light and outdoor scenes. My work is exhibited throughout California and has won honors in juried exhibitions and annual salons. I now live in Los Angeles, California with my family where I enjoy painting in the foothills of the Angeles National Forest. I teach Fine Art drawing and painting in both Los Angeles and Laguna Beach. Kevin Christman Kevin Christman has been professionally sculpting for over 20 years.
