Michael Dadasovich, "Sand Harbor" Oil 16" * 20"
Michael Dadasovich is featured in January with “Rectangularity.” The show runs from February 5th - 31st.
In Michael Dadasovich's words, "Four corners, four sides, and a flat plane defining the boundaries of a painting."
After painting in watercolors and pastels for many years, Michel transitioned to acrylics and oils. Among Michael's selections of works are paintings done in the Tahoe basin and Yosemite over the last 20 years, along with familiar local scenes. Some of the work was done with recently passed artist Gregory Kondos in workshop sessions. Other of Michael's inspirations are two of his favorite painters, S. C. Yuan and Jerrold Turner.
Michael will be greeting patrons and new friends at the Benicia Plein Air Gallery on the weekends of February 12,13 and 26, 27.
Mary Lou Correia and Karen Leoni will be moving into a new venue, Studio 55 in Martinez, in February; they will be teaching and creating events from there. More to come!
