American painter Ken Sheffer, formerly a rocket scientist, will showcase his oil paintings in an exhibit, “Postcards from the Antipodes,” on display at the Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center from Oct. 6-31.
Sheffer shares his lifelong creative passion in this solo exhibit of oil paintings curated by George Cutress. Sheffers command of color and the use of light and shadows in his oil paintings result in amazing value gradients (no air brush here) and a deceptive three dimensionality to each piece. The natural and abstract collide in his work.
The opening reception for “Postcards from the Antipodes” will be held Saturday, Oct. 9, 6-9 p.m. in conjunction with the Art Colony's Second Saturday Artwalk event with free gallery openings, live music, shops and restaurants all in a six-block radius. Both the reception and the exhibit are open to the public, free of charge.
The Cal Poly Pomona Downtown Center is located at 300 W. Second St. in the Pomona Arts Colony. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, noon to 6 p.m.
For more information on the exhibit, call Cybele Garcia at (909) 469-0080.
