About the Artists:

Janine Free is a French artist with a camera who abstracts urban landscapes.  She travels widely to catch mannequins in store windows.  She composes her pictures to include the reflection off the glass, producing a surreal effect.  She is starting a new mixed media series of very large photographs she took in the streets of Europe and the US, using spray paint, magazines, and paint.

Beverly LaRock- Rocks, shells and seaweed are washed up by the surf on Moonlight Beach and create a myriad of patterns. Beverly LaRock merges these elements together in this series of black and white images. They capture both the beauty and quietude of the beach as well as its constant motion. These composites showcase Beverly’s creative vision of nature and people drawn from her extensive travels around the world. Her photographs are seen extensively in San Diego County and published in Black & White Magazine.

The MTRP Visitor and Interpretive Center is located at One Father Junipero Serra Trail, San Diego, CA 92119, and it is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.  Admission is free.

The MTRP Foundation was formed in 1988 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit public benefit corporation.
