Solana Beach City Hall Gallery is hosting an art exhibit now through Jan. 2, 2014 featuring the unique reverse oil on recycled glass oil painter Joshua Serafin. A reception will be held on Thursday, Dec. 12, from 5-8 p.m.
Serafin has been selling his work in Solana Beach and nearby coastal towns since 2002. Serafin hopes to inspire and enlighten locals and tourists with works of art that represent the local culture. Viewers will get a look at Serafin’s latest reverse oil on recycled glass paintings. Serafin “has taken his many studio hours of experience, exploration, and techniques to another level with his oil on glass reverse paintings. His loose, bold, expressionist style is refined as his pallet shows brilliance behind glass. Serafin is at the forefront of bringing back this ancient art form.”
Serafin grew up in Huntington Beach influenced by the sand, sun, music, and waves. He graduated from California State University, Long Beach, with a bachelor’s degree in art, emphasis painting. Many Orange County residents as well as San Diego and Los Angeles counties own Serafin originals and reproductions. His work can be found at various art shows and galleries along the California coast.
Solana Beach City Hall Gallery is located at 635 South Highway 101, Solana Beach, Ca. 92075; 858 720 2454; Curator Anita Edman. Visit artbyserafin.com
