The pastel work of plein air painter and Pastel 100 award-winner Kim Lordier will be the subject of a new show opening this week (May 14) at the James J. Rieser Fine Art in Carmel, Calif. The show will include 28 land- and seascapes inspired by the scenic central California coast and bay lands of the San Francisco peninsula. Lordier describes her subjects as “rugged coastline alive with long shadows and rolling surf, clear green pools sparkling in the sun, sand and scrub shimmering under a lifting bank of fog … and light.”
The gallery will host a “Meet the Artist” event on Saturday, from 12-2 pm, just one of many Saturday art events taking place in the town which also hosts the The Carmel Art Festival this weekend.
