The 2014 LCA
Awards Exhibition offers a study in contrasts. Joni Marie Theodorsen’s
work may appear monochromatic and abstract to some, but her focus
is on creating landscapes in different media, a project she’s been
working on for 15 years. Her pieces convey a profound sense of place,
of weather and environment. In contrast to Theodorsen’s work, the
paintings of Anna Valdez are rich with color and pattern. Her domestic
interiors feature personal and household objects from her own life
and personal history, inviting viewers to reflect on the role and
importance of everyday objects in the tapestry of their own lives.
Sanchez Art Center is located at 1220 Linda Mar Boulevard in Pacifica, 1.2 miles east of Highway 1. Following opening night, the galleries are open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 1–5 pm, and by appointment, through May 17.
