BONSALL – On May 4, a new exhibition of paintings by Brett Stokes, RoseAnne Sobkow and Neill Ketchum, and sculpture by Wendell Perry, was hung at Z Café, located in Bonsall River Village. A reception for the artists will be held at the café on Saturday, May 25, between 4 and 6 p.m.
Wendell Perry graduated from UCLA with a degree in painting, graphics, and sculpture. His sculpture is rooted in the forms, textures and ever changing landscapes of nature, and ancient cultures. He was introduced to bronze casting by Andy Fagan, and worked with friend and mentor, Ron Young in mold making and the patina applications.
Brett Stokes is known for a commitment to his inner vision, the environment, and Native American imagery. His quiver includes bold portraiture, sociopolitical commentary, and the natural world. The artist’s family ancestry is Native American from the plains of Oklahoma. His focus on Native American imagery began as a child and has continued in his conceptual paintings, monotypes, and sculptures.
RoseAnne Sobkow enrolled in the art program at Palomar College upon retirement as Captain from the US Navy Nurse Corps in 1992. After working with many media and exposure to the many excellent teachers, she discovered her passion, printmaking. Sobkow studied printmaking with Bill Kelly Ill, Master Printmaker and owner of Brighton Press for several years.
Neill Ketchum is the art coordinator at the Z Café and has shown there for the last couple of years. The artists would like to welcome everyone to the “Z” and look forward to celebrating on May 25. The Z Café and Gallery is located in River Village, Bonsall, at South Mission Rd. and State Route 76.
