DESCRIPTION

The gallery will present an exhibition of new paintings by Santa Barbara artist Pamela Kendall Schiffer, which also focus on the central coast of California, particularly the area of Hollister Ranch.  Working on relatively small-scale wood panels,

Schiffer favors intimate compositions of atmospheric conditions defined by light. Minimal subjects, such as a small grove of eucalyptus trees against a foggy ocean horizon, allow the artist to focus on the sublimity of light and space in a Luminist fashion.  Like Everett’s remote subjects, Schiffer’s views of Hollister Ranch draw attention to a generally inaccessible area with what critic Josef Woodward calls, “ a beguiling poetry of restraint.”
