BONSALL – Three local artists are displaying their work at Z Cafe now through July. They will be at a reception at the café on Saturday, June 7 from 3 to 5 p.m.
Darlene Seale has lived in Fallbrook since she was 9; she was a graphic designer for 12 years which led to her expertise in digital media.
Seale’s recent series include girls transformed by their heart’s dreams, girls throughout the world who refuse to give up, despite living under conditions in which religious practices or poverty prevent opportunity. The artist creates many of her paintings on her iPad. She starts with a unique vision and applies what she knows, using these tools to make the painting.
Anna Parker, born in communist Poland, fled with her family to Germany and then eventually settled in California. Growing up, she was drawn to sprawling landscapes, skyscapes and seascapes. Going back to Europe at different times gave her an opportunity to learn more art history, architecture, sculpture, etc. She has studied at various colleges, but is primarily self taught. This artist of many talents is also a successful web designer.
Neill Ketchum is the perennial artist and coordinator at the Z Café. She is busy working on her second children’s book but still takes time to paint her beloved trees. Recently, she has been husbanding her forest of oaks to provide more growing space and light. The trees provide their pattern and shapes as the limbs and branches cut across the sky and ground; nature trumps.
Z Cafe is in the River Village Center, 5256 S. Mission Rd. and is open seven days a week, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
