Pull-Out Map

It’s no wonder that so many artists live and work in San Diego. For several years now San Diego has been chosen as one of the “Top 25 Cities for Art” and ArtWalk displays some excellent examples of what makes art in our city so outstanding. The sights, sounds, colors and textures invite artistic interpretation and exploration.

Centerfold Use the enclosed pull-out map to find your way to artists, parking, dining, businesses that support MFAW and more.

Our city is a haven for the arts and ArtWalk celebrates that by showcasing our local talent as well as artists from throughout the United States and abroad. At a time when creative thinking is so critical to our community and the world, ArtWalk symbolizes the wealth of innovation that San Diego cultivates. As you stroll the event I hope you find a piece of art that calls to you.

Featured Artists

Liz Abeyta • San Diego lizabeyta.com • Tent 127

Liz seeks to capture the light and the landscape. She is consumed with painting en plein air (works done on location). About this passion she says, “I love the constant challenge of plein air painting as it forces me to pare down grand vistas or detailed scenes to the bare essentials. It is a delicate balance to provide just enough so that the viewer understands the painting, while at the same time leaving features to the imagination. I strive to be efficient with brushstrokes yet still capture my feelings about the location.” Pictured: Tidepool Hopping, Oil on Canvas, 24” x 36”

Rey Alfonso • Santa Barbara reyalfonsostudio.com • Tent 503/504 Rey’s childhood in Cuba, work in his uncle’s metal shop, service in the Cuban army at sixteen and subsequent escape by boat to freedom in America all influence his work. He translates his ideas of traveling and movement into a spiritual light with circles reminiscent of mandalas. The circles describe navigational points that migrate or move, mapping out the ongoing transitions from place to place or phase to phase. The sometimes illegible writings within the paintings refer to migrants and immigrants leaving traces of their lives and languages as they move from place to place. Pictured: Celestial Aria, Pigment on Aluminum, 6’ x 7’

Mario Cespedes • La Quinta

amazonfinearts.net • Tent 906

Mario’s art reflects his roots in Latin America. He explores the “fables and fairytales” that thrive in the communities along the Amazon River. Mario describes the region as a “world of joy within a universe of beliefs.” He describes how his work reveals both the dark and light of the region: “The rain forest is not the sacred land it once was. Tricky politicians, pollution, and deforestation have left their fingerprints. Beauty and chaos are the local mixed media. I ask myself if brushes, canvasses or watercolors are tools enough to describe this side of the forest?” Pictured: The Boy and the Bird, Acrylic on Paper, 26” x 32”

Patricia DeLeon • Santa Barbara

patricia-deleon.com • Tent 502

In Patricia’s work the figure is at the center of a magical and symbolic universe. The medium of encaustic— pigmented beeswax mixed with resin—provides a place for this union of form and content. She builds up hundreds of layers of color and texture using molten wax. “The wax surface is the skin and the skin bears the marks of a story,” she says. “It is within this interplay of image, abrasion, luminosity and texture that I create an opportunity to find something, a space for things to fall into place.” Pictured: Conveyance, Encaustic on Wood Panel, 24” x 24”

Featured Artists

Chris Honeysett • Pacifica

chrishoneysett.com • Tent 511/512

Chris began taking photographs at three and has not stopped since. What began as a child’s curiosity has turned into his primary passion. In 1987 Chris began using a large format camera that completely changed the way he takes photographs. The slow, cumbersome equipment allows for a more meditative approach. “I feel excited to be alive when I’m making an image,” says Chris. “It’s as if life is at a crescendo at that very moment and I am privileged to share in it. Afterwards, I bow to the subject in thanks.” Pictured: Morning Surf, Photograph, 10” x 50”

Jon Koehler • San Diego

jonkoehler.com • Tent 335

The son of a successful boat designer and builder, Jon learned woodworking and metalworking in the boatyard at his father’s side. In grade school, he studied drawing and watercolor with a local college professor. As his skill deepened he developed a unique style and focused his passion on creating art. Jon’s sculptures, ranging from 10 inches to 30 feet tall, incorporate kinetic elements and a unique sense of fluidity. They appear to have a life of their own as they move in a slow tranquil motion. Pictured: Rain 1, Stainless Sculpture, 24’ x 10’ x 8’

Hasuyo Miller • Temecula hasuyo.com • Tent 181

From the moment she took her first ceramics class in high school, Hasuyo was hooked on clay. After studying and teaching, she became a full-time studio artist. Hasuyo constantly explores new ideas and develops techniques to create different styles of work. She has been honored with many awards, but the heart of her quest is “to be in love with the work that goes into each piece.” Hasuyo’s ceramics continually change as she develops “a constant play and interaction of ideas, color, texture and one thought leading to another.” Pictured: Blue Door, Clay/Mixed Media, 30” x 19.5”

Harold Pickern • San Diego haroldpickern.com • Tent 508

Harold describes his work this way: “I cannot remember a time when I didn’t make art. The process of converting materials into thought provoking objects or images is where the juice is. As a painter I enjoy having the freedom to paint things that I like, from old cars to cowboys. To capture the romance that exists in even the most commonplace object or scene continues to be a motivating force in my work. One of my favorite themes is dealing with images of discarded objects found in the American landscape.” Pictured: Pella, Acrylic on Canvas, 60” x 48”

Featured Artists Hugo Rivera • Laguna Beach

hugorivera.com • Tent 326

Early on Hugo loved to paint and draw. After studying civil engineering in Guadalajara, Mexico, he relocated to the United States and returned to his passion for fine art. Hugo is the world’s first postmodern fresco artist. Although he gained prominence as an interpretive modern artist, Hugo felt that much of the modern art world had lost sight of paintings’ roots in classical arts. In his move to postmodernism, Hugo sought to marry classical techniques with modern interpretations. Thus was born the post-modern fresco – a fusion of the old and the new. Pictured: The Blue Checkers, Limestone, 48” x 60”

Susanne Slater • San Diego

slaterwatercolors.com • Tent 513

Susanne Slater began drawing at an early age. She grew up in Colorado, Wyoming and Montana absorbing her father’s love of western artists. In her twenties she moved to San Diego for a career in nursing, but continued to draw. In 2000 she decided to pursue her dream of becoming a full-time artist. Susanne took classes at Jeff Watts Atelier (Encinitas) and then studied with award-winning artist Jim Millard. She has not stopped painting since. Though she has traveled and worked throughout Europe, San Diego remains Susanne’s favorite place to paint. Pictured: Balboa Park, Watercolor on Paper, 15” x 22”

Mark Stephenson • Sky Valley

markstephensonart.info • Tent 186/188 Writing, drama and the creative arts sparked Mark’s enthusiasm more than anything else in school. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English (Colorado College, 1979), then a Bachelor of Arts in Photography (Brooks Institute of Photographic Arts & Sciences, 1983). Mark prints his photographs on metallic acrylic and metal-leafed grounds, innovative techniques that create amazing depth, beautiful iridescence and incomparable brilliance. “The artwork,” says Mark, “points to and celebrates the true value of Life (with a capital “L”) manifest in common natural forms.” Pictured: Pacific Coast Grasses (#8719), Photograph on Gold Acrylic, 36” x 54”

Marcus Thesing • Laguna Beach marcusthesing.com • Tent 373

Marcus’ initial interest in art began early. His father sculpted and Marcus, too, was drawn to creating threedimensional art. In college, he explored every available art class, but then he met Laguna Beach master glassblower John Barber. He instantly fell in love with this molten media. John offered Marcus a three-year apprenticeship that extended to nine. During that time he developed his own techniques and designs. In 2003 he opened his own studio. Marcus’ love for nature very much influences the color patterns and organic shapes of his work. Pictured: Hyacinth Violet in the Wind, Hand Blown Glass, 16” x 14” x 3”

How to Combat Freezard and Help Keep Arts Education in Schools by Ron Jessee

Ron Jessee

Visual & Performing Arts Coordinator

San Diego County Office of Education

My favorite recipe for eliminating freezard?

Hand write a five-sentence letter to your favorite politician describing the amazing impact arts education has had on your life and the lives of people you know. Let’s work together to eliminate freezard and bring back a full education for every child in every school.

Have you ever driven in a blizzard? I grew up in Minnesota where blizzards are a way of life. Although snow is not a major factor for most San Diegans, there’s another type of blizzard that we experience. I call it freezard—a mix of non-creative frigid curriculum that’s whipped up into a frenzy of icy standardized tests. Freezard, though harmful, may be defeated when community members take action. My friends and I have the following tips for dealing with the chilling effects of freezard.

Russ Sperling, Director of Visual and Performing Arts in the Sweetwater Union High School District,

recommends that victims of freezard express (via letters or phone calls) their support for arts education to school district officials and encourage them to attend student performances. (Don’t forget to attend yourself!) For a list of county school superintendents visit sdcoe.net/distadd.asp

Victoria Saunders, Arts Consultant and Coach, believes that community members could influence policy by investigating each district’s priorities for student learning. Attending school board meetings helps you become informed. Let officials hear your voice.

Robin Ballarin, Director of Curriculum in the Grossmont Union High School District, suggests that freezard

can be less slippery if individuals donate time, services and financial support to schools or school districts. Many schools use volunteers or outside arts agencies to beef up arts education. For a list of some of the arts organizations available to work in schools visit aerosd.org
