The community is invited to the Solana Beach library to view the distinctive work of two local artists, Victoria Bearden and Gregory Brown, on display through Jan. 30. The artists will be at the library at 2 p.m. Jan. 10 to discuss their work.
Victoria Bearden (vbearden.com) earned an MFA from UCSD in video and performance art, later choosing to focus on drawing and painting. Her art includes contemporary figurative and expressive abstracts, using traditional materials: graphite, oil, acrylic and watercolor.
Gregory Brown (gmbcyanotype.com), a retired solar design and energy architect, uses the unique medium of cyanotype. Cyanotype images are produced by light striking a photosensitive emulsion, revealing effects that cannot be duplicated by paint. The results of the cyanotype process are always a surprise — an invitation to the viewer to explore.
The library is at 157 Stevens Ave.; call 858-755-1404.
