Photo by Rob Wishart Longtime Ventura County water media artist and plein air painter Margy Gates has a new show at Gallery 28 at Seabridge, near in the Channel Islands Harbor in Oxnard, on view until July 9th when it returns to Margy’s Sea Gate Gallery and Studio. The collection includes watercolors from the past and also presents seven new acrylic pieces, which highlight the show with their complex style and powerful colors. Margy admits these works are quite personal, and signal a sharp turn in her already eclectic style. Inspired after a very challenging year personally, the expository nature of the work is quite engaging and has generated great enthusiasm. Another eye-catching piece, “Night Flight” is a deeply hued acrylic, which Margy says “may be the beginning of a long-postponed multi-media abstract series of world views from aircraft at cruising altitude.” Margy has been making art all her life. She holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts from Claremont
Margy and guests at Gallery 28 If you missed Margy’s gallery opening, you missed an exciting event! We’ve included some photos of the opening, which was on a beautiful evening on June15. One of the patrons said, “Margy, your work sets the world on fire!” The excitement started when the meatballs caught fire in the gallery’s kitchen. We were out getting a little fresh air while the fire trucks arrived….and the handsome firefighters took care of everything in short order. Just a little smoke…. Then they gave the all clear to have us re-enter and went on their way… Thank you, Oxnard Fire Department! Some patrons viewing Margy’s works.
