268. Iconic Marin – Bryn Craig Exhibition

Friday night was the opening reception for the Bryn Craig “Iconic Marin” Exhibition at Gallery Bergelli, Larkspur, which runs through October 19th. Craig’s oil paintings depict many familiar buildings, places and scenes of Marin. Over the 30 years he has lived in San Rafael, he has explored the county and found places that have captured his attention, that have caught him when the lighting and the image was just right. Craig explains that when he goes out specifically looking for subject material, he doesn’t find it, it’s when he’s not seeking it that it is found. He initially captures the scene either with a quick watercolor or a photo, and then paints it in oils.

I am drawn to many of the paintings, partly because a number of them are buildings or places that I especially connect with and immediately recognize, and recall a particular memory. Coincidentally, I have written in this blog about many of them, so I suspect that Craig and I share what appeals visually to us in a subject. There are several that I would want to have with me if I ever moved far away from Marin and wanted an evocative reminder of this place.

The gallery is very approachable, and the Director, Julia McEvily, is warm and enthusiastic about the exhibit, Bryn Craig, and the other art and artists they represent. I highly recommend stopping by and enjoying the show.
