Opening Reception Saturday, March 11th 5-7 PM

“Within the Bay Area’s rich Plein air painting scene, Benicia artist Jerrold Turner stands out for his colors and plein air style.  But a few years ago Turner wanted to go to new places with his art. Rather than venture outdoors, he decided to work indoors, in his home studio, gravitating more toward fantasy and surrealism.  His current oil paintings are humorous, whimsical and usually a commentary on social or political issues.  At 84, Turner is not finished exploring new creative avenues, and growing as an artist. . . . . . .Jerrold is also a structural engineer who graduated from UC Berkeley with BS and MS degrees in engineering. . . . . .”I found that I had no conflict with the right brain and left brain elements . . .. . I have the same love for science that I do for art, he said.”
