This exhibition will feature long-time Monterey area artist Johnny Apodaca’s vivid new series of small gouache paintings on paper, along with a selection of the dynamic semi-abstract oil paintings for which he is recognized.
Apodaca was inspired to paint the gouaches—light-filled studies of the Italian countryside—during his sojourns in the Umbria region over the past several years. These diminutive works have inspired an exciting new group of oil paintings, which will be featured in conjunction with the gouaches.
