FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Library will host two new exhibitions, with the art of Pat Rogondino and of Gina Lawson Egan, June 25 to Aug. 25, with a reception for the artists Friday, June 30.
“Pat Rogondino, Graphic Artist for the Library” features her contributions to the Fallbrook Library over the past six years. Rogondino has produced several hundred posters announcing programs in music, lectures, art, dance and other events. As a volunteer for the Friends of the Fallbrook Library, she has set a standard of excellence for the designs and has made an outstanding contribution to the community.
The exhibition contains 50 colorful and complex examples of her work. Rogondino studied art at the American Academy of Art in Chicago and took up a career in illustration. Before moving to Fallbrook, Rogondino and her husband Michael had successful careers, especially in book design and technical illustration, working with educators, scientists, authors and publishers. They also published an amazing and useful book with 20,000 four-color samples for the conversion of computer colors to print colors.
On the reading patio, Gina Lawson Egan will show her witty ceramic sculptures of women in “Whimsical Inclinations.” She received her bachelor of fine arts from the University of Michigan and studied with the well-known ceramic artist Paul Soldner for her master’s degree in ceramics from the Claremont Graduate University. Egan currently teaches ceramics at California State Polytechnic University Pomona. Her works are in prestigious collections throughout the United States.
The artist’s reception will be held 6 p.m. June 30 at the library. Light refreshments and music by pianist David Renier will be provided. The event is free, and everyone is invited to celebrate the accomplishments of these two fine artists. The Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Road.
