June 14 – August 2

The Art Museum of Los Gatos presents Point of View: Landscape Interpreted, featuring the work of artists Kim Lordier, Rex Naden and Gage Opdenbrouw.

The contemporary artists in this exhibition offer three distinct perspectives on the Landscape genre. Each employs different media and process while persuasively communicating landscapes imbued with feeling and personal experience. The views themselves are primarily from the Western United States and Bay Area, and chronicle an account of our environs and culture for future generations.

Kim Lordier is inspired by the early California Impressionists. Her work in pastels has gained national attention and has been featured in several books and periodicals including Southwest Art Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur, American Artist, The Pastel Journal and The Plein Air Magazine. Lordier is represented by galleries throughout California and Arizona.

Rex Naden, a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, is now a full-time photographer of landscapes. He has exhibited widely, including at the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite, Viewpoint Gallery in Sacramento, the Smithsonian Institution’s headquarters, and Filoli Gardens. He has served as a Trustee and Chairman of the Exhibit Committee for the Center for Photographic Arts and teaches with Charles Cramer at the Ansel Adams Gallery.

“I am not making paintings that attempt to convey a message, but rather an experience.” Gage Opdenbrouw’s oil paintings of interiors and exteriors all retain an element of mystery and invite personal responses. His work has been exhibited nationwide and locally, at MPG Contemporary in Boston, MA, ArtZone 461 Gallery in San Francisco, the SFOMA Artist’s Gallery, and many more. In addition, Opdenbruow teaches painting and drawing to Bay Area youths.
