February 2019 Newsletter

Are you enjoying the lengthening days? I certainly am. Light has always been an important part of my art, both as a theme and as an inspiration. During February, I find that my art explores illumination, hope and intensifying colors. As we celebrate 2019, I hope your February is a good one.

In this newsletter, I am pleased to share with you information about my upcoming Solo Show, a special collector profile, and other news. 


Solo Show at Elsie's and More

My solo show at Elsie's in Santa Barbara starts February 7 and runs until March 5th. The show is entitled A Vision From Beyond, and features over 20 works. Two of the paintings are shown above: Beyond (large acrylic on canvas) and Meetings (an oil pastel).  One of my other new oil pastel paintings, Surprise, represents my bolder palate, and is shown below

The Opening Reception starts at 6:00 pm on February 7 and lasts until 8:30. If you are in the Santa Barbara area, I really hope to see you there (117 W. De La Guerra). I will have lots of chocolates.

I am truly honored to have been selected to do this show, and I want to especially thank Bouloor (at Elsie's), Alli (at the Frame-Up) and my mother for all of their assistance and support.  Also, my father made a great, limited edition poster for the show, which I have numbered and signed. In the next newsletter, I will include some photos from opening night.

The Abstract Open IV will also have a First Thursday event on February 7 between 5:00 and 7:00 at the Channing Peake Gallery, 105 E. Anapamu. The show runs until February 21. I have two acrylics in the show, including Working Together, which won a Second Place. Hope you can swing by that show, too.

Rance Wall with 



In Appreciation and Quote of the Month

This month I am happy to feature one of my largest collectors, Rance Wall (shown above). Rance owns and displays many pieces of my art. As you might see from his photo, Rance looks very happy. After working as an engineer and high-level supervisor for over 40 years, Rance just retired on January 2nd. A graduate of LSU and Tulane, Rance has Professional Engineer licenses in both Civil and Environmental Engineering. An enthusiastic art collector and appreciator, he also happens to be my stepfather. Thanks for all of your support, Rance, and congratulations on your retirement.

Now for my quote of the month, which among other things, shows the power of light. "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." Martin Luther King, Jr.

Thank you for reading my newsletter and for supporting original contemporary abstract art. As always, I appreciate hearing from you.

Warm Regards,

Andrew Roy
Member Santa Barbara Art Association and The Abstract Art Collective
