Images of the Central Coast
Art on View at Los Olivos Cafe
July 2nd - September 3rd
Artist Reception - Thursday, July 16th - 6:30 p.m.
A new exhibit of works by local artist Lauren McFarland is featured in a show at the Los Olivos Café, from July 2 through September 3. Beautiful color art photographs of local subjects each have a story to tell the viewer. The public is invited to a reception for the artist hosted by the Los Olivos Café on Thursday, July 16, from 5 to 6:30 pm; this provides a great opportunity to meet the artist and learn more about her work and process.
The artist notes: "This is a collection of my most favorite central coast color landscape pieces. Everything was shot in the last two years and spans the coastline of Gaviota, the oaks of Santa Ynez and the vineyards of Los Alamos. Each picture represents a special place to me in a difficult to get to locale. "Queen of the Oaks" is an image of a 300 year old oak wedged between 14,000 acres of private ranching property. "The Long Drive Home" was taken on the road to one of my closest friend's retreat high above the Gaviota coastline. I truly enjoy documenting the incredible beauty that surrounds me on a daily basis, thanks in part to the amazing lifestyle I've been fortunate enough to lead as a cowgirl."
This exhibit is one of a continuing series of shows made possible by the commitment of the Los Olivos Café to showcase local art and artists. The Artists Guild of the Santa Ynez Valley, a nonprofit arts organization with over thirty years of history in the area, coordinates and manages the “art without borders” installation in cooperation with the Café. A portion of art sales benefits AGSYV and these collaborative efforts - a way to keep art alive and accessible in the Santa Ynez Valley.
