Four Arts: A Quartet of Views
A Collaborative Venture
A Quartet of Views
February 21 through March 17, 2019
300 Main Street, Half Moon Bay, CA
Four perspectives on the world is on view at the Coastal Arts League until March 17, 2019. The work of pen-and-ink artist Gary Frink, mixed-media artist Chris Manchester, and photographers Ingo Bork and Steve Renwick.
Photographers, Ingo Bork and Steve Renwick both work in the semiconductor industry, on the bay side of the Peninsula, but they enjoy the slower pace of life on the coastside. Ingo uses his world travels as an opportunity to find quiet and beauty amid the bustle of commerce. Ingo says, "Practicing ‘Zen’ in photography is my goal, and I hope some of my pictures convey this atmosphere to the viewer."
Steve Renwick's work has been shown at local eateries and pubs both on the Coastside and the bay side of the Peninsula. His photos study architecture, as well as the objects of everyday life, using classic black-and-white film and darkroom techniques. Steve says, “Images are ephemeral, but the light, and the world that inspired artists before us, is still there.”

A self-taught artist, Gary Frink's career in the military and aviation industry led to cartooning what he knew best – airplanes and sports. Later, Gary directed his creative nature to the more disciplined technique of pen and ink drawing, influenced by his love of the outdoors.
