Gallery show features distinguished artists

Gregory Kondos River Mya Louw BrandROSEVILLE — The Blue Line is proud to present two distinguished artists, Gregory Kondos and Mya Louw in the Coker Family Gallery and “Pop! Goes the Art” in the WestPark Workshop Gallery, featuring multiple artists from the region.

Gregory Kondos is one of California’s most prominent artists and is one of the most respected landscape painters in the United States. His landscapes are known nation-wide of Yosemite, the Sacramento River Delta, the coast line with its beaches and rocks, the Southwest, Aix en Provence, France, and the islands of Greece, his parents’ home land.

Kondos has been an art professor for 30 years and the art gallery at Sacramento City College is named after him.

Over the course of his life, he has won many awards including those at two winter invitationals at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor, a Dillard Collection prize, Lifetime Achievement award at the Florence Biennale, and being elected into the National Academy of Art, New York.

Oil and pastel painter, Mya Louw, was born in Rotterdam, Holland. She has lived, studied and worked in South Africa, Europe and the United States.

Her formal, classical art training began at 13 after being overawed by the mammoth work of Rembrandt’s “Nightwatch.”

Graduate studies, after obtaining a fine arts degree with honors in painting at Rhodes University in South Africa, were done at Polytechnics and the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg.  The quest for an ‘ultimate painting’ continues with research and studies both locally and abroad.

Landscape Interpretations by Greg Kondos and Mya Louw will run through Saturday, April 13 at the Blue Line, 405 Vernon St. in Roseville. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. or by appointment.

There will be an artists’ reception on March 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. It is open to the public with members only from 6 to 7 p.m.
