Art Exhibit

In addition to being a music venue, the Mildred Owen Concert Hall also displays art throughout the year.

Our current show is as follows:

G. Lee Boerger

This exhibit represents many of my continuing artwork interests. I love color, am enriched by nature and express this, including pattern, with a variety of mediums.

 

My Botanical art ranges from close observations in nature and illustrating plants for any years at the San Francisco Botanical Gardens–and gardening is always a pleasure.

Landscapes are mainly focused on observing Bernal Heights hill in San Francisco through all seasons and weather, with a view of the hill from my home.

The Carpet pieces relate to restoration and repair of oriental carpets I have worked on and photographed, as they were overlapped and folded.

The Vessel series is inspired by Greek and Roman storage containers I have seen in museums or on site.

Many of the botanicals, carpet pieces and vessels are monoprints, built up in layers as backgrounds first, with images then carved and printed on top. These are hand pulled prints without the use of a press. Part of the pleasure is the unexpected result from this method of printmaking. The inks are water based and are printed on Japanese papers.

And now as a studio artist at Sanchez Art Center, my studio 1 gives me great space to experiment. Visits are welcomed.
