Coastal Arts League Introduces New Leaders
Event Calendar for 2017
Recent Work Explodes in January Show
Steve Renwick, photographer, grew up in Maine and was educated as a physicist in Connecticut. He drifted into the semiconductor industry and was lured to the late-20th-century Gold Dot Com Rush in California in 2000. He and his wife each work "up over the hill" but live in Moss Beach, enjoying the Coastside community.
Paul Rubas, sculptor, was born in the Czech Republic. Attended Rutgers University majoring in languages and literature. He is a self-taught artist who resides in Belmont. His sculptures and furniture are made from recycled and reshaped materials, including metals, various woods and stone.
Board Members for 2017:
Members are often caught through the lens of Coastside photographers, attending monthly Openings in the gallery. Eleven Exhibitions comprise the calendar for 2017.
The Coastal Arts League is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, founded in 1979, by local artists. Like any small non-profit, we exist because of our volunteers. We propose that by working together, we can all have more impact on the causes and issues we care about.
Strategic Vision Announced
The Board of Directors is meeting to chart a new course for financial sustainability, after the 2016 loss of longtime Benefactor and Director, Arabella Decker. Key programs for 2017 include Adult Art classes, at the Senior Center, and an After-school Art Program for K-5 students in the Mid-Peninsula Housing center. The next Adult Art Class at the Senior Center begins March 3, 2017 at 12:45pm.
Community Art Program
We believe that both mental and physical well-being are improved through hands-on artistic expression. Our objective is to build an on-going program that benefits our community. Our members support community engagement, because it makes Half Moon Bay a better place to live.
Baldwin paints the iconic images of Half Moon Bay and the surrounding Coastside from his Princeton studio. His paintings of Romeo Pier, Main Street and other landmarks are soothing and capture the quintessential aspect of the coast.
“I first got inspired by California landscapes when I joined the Air Force,” said Baldwin. “I’d never been to California before. I’d just gotten out of college and sworn in as a lieutenant and sent to Sacramento to do navigator training.
“Three strangers are sharing gallery space for three weeks,” said Don Baldwin in an email. “We could have divvied up the gallery space into thirds and presented three compartmented exhibitions, but, upon meeting each other, we quickly decided that the only way to proceed was by interweaving our respective artworks into one exhibition.
“It is a fresh example of the power of art to unite people, and another incentive to fund art education in our schools,” he added.
