November: Group Art Exhibition  Different Strokes Painters

Gallery 1855 presents “Two Michaels,” a unique photography exhibition featuring two lifelong friends and artists and their photographs of landscape and architecture. The exhibit will run until Oct. 30. The opening reception is planned from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14.

Michael Radin’s works are a romantic series of photographs that capture human interactions in everyday lives in France.

He first arrived in Paris 20 years ago and spent three months around Europe. He immediately fell in love with the city, the Seine and the quais that border the river. He still visits France regularly.

This collection will make viewers feel like they’ve stepped back in time.

Michael Stone captures landscape and architecture using his digital camera and Photoshop Paint Program. The result is a photograph with an impressionistic painted surface. A portion of his works will include a series of a 1940’s apartment complex in Santa Monica.

“The old apartments and the smooth bark Eucalyptus trees have always caught my eye,” he said. “I have been working on this project since early 2018.” He lives in Santa Fe, N.M., and has made three visits to the project area this year and continues to find new images to work with.

Gallery 1855 is nonprofit art gallery at the Davis Cemetery District office, 820 Pole Line Road. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the art and explore the grounds and gardens. Information can be found at www.daviscemetery.org.
