June 17, 2011 (La Mesa)--What is your image of summer? Being on the water, a back country visit, ripe grapes in the sun? We all have nostalgic and joyful memories of summers past, and hopes for relaxation, recreation and friendship in the months ahead.
"Images of Summer" at O'Dunn Fine Art in La Mesa will present--in the vernacular of painting--sunny days of over twenty artists, in oils, watercolor, and pastels. Landscape, figurative, and abstract pieces evoke the season, each framed and ready to hang. Proprietor Shannon O'Dunn invites you to join her for the opening of "Images of Summer", and to celebrate the Summer Solstice with music and art on Wednesday June 22, from 5 pm to 8 pm.
The catered event will feature the talents of guitarist Bill Coleman, a popular figure on the corporate and private party circuit in Southern California. He combines jazz, classical, Latin and contemporary influences into a style uniquely his own. Coleman is currently the guitarist at the Rancho Valencia Resort in Fairbanks Ranch and performs for private functions in San Diego, Palm Springs and Los Angeles.
In today's recessionary times, there are excellent investments to be made in fine art, advises O'Dunn, former dean of Fine Art in the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District.
