Five Viewpoints Exhibition : November 23, 2010-January 15, 2011
The Kevin Milligan Gallery presents five artists who reside in five different Bay Area counties. The quintet brings years of practice and craft to the realization of their medium.
Paula Boas, Abstract Acrylic Painting
Her abstract paintings are rooted in architectural and natural landscapes and their respective geometrical and organic forms. “I start with and idea or color or sense, but then improvisation takes over and the paintings move in new and sometimes unexpected directions.”
Sally Cataldo, Still Life/Landscape Watercolor Painting
“I try to capture a sense of mystery.” “The images are there, void of set process which brings spirit and strength.”
Jason Griego, Figurative Sculpture
Using resin and natural pigments Jason creates sculptures with strong emotional content. The near life size winged female sculptures find beauty in raw imperfection.
Ken Holden, Impressionistic Photography
“The images play havoc to visual interpretation because of their intriguing juxtaposition to the living participants.” It is this intrigue that has led me to see beyond the public display to capture the mirrored side of reality and thus express an impressionistic existential point-of-view.”
Kevin Milligan, Interior/Landscape Oil Painting
Kevin’s interior views and landscapes are created from life and are inspired by on site discoveries. His works reference both Early California and Bay Area Figurative artists.

In addition to the Save Mount Diablo Art Exhibition, the Kevin Milligan Gallery also hosts two other fundraising events benefiting the Mount Diablo cause: Wine for Diablo and Dine for Diablo. Proceeds from wine sales for “Wine for Diablo” and proceeds from dining at selected local restaurants will benefit Save Mount Diablo, a citizens-based non-profit of Walnut Creek, California. Their mission is to preserve Mount Diablo's peaks, surrounding foothills and watersheds through land acquisition and preservation strategies designed to protect the mountain's natural beauty, biological diversity and historic and agricultural heritage; enhance our area's quality of life; and provide recreational opportunities consistent with protection of natural resources.
The gallery is proud to host these three events in support of this great cause.
