FALLBROOK – New artwork was hung on the walls of the Z Cafe June 3, and it will be there until Sept. 2, including views of Turkish marbling from Lisa and Rick Mayer and photographic portraits from far away places from Jordan Verdin.

A reception will be held in the artists' honor Saturday, June 15, from 3 to 5 p.m. at the lower gallery at the Z Cafe. Everyone is invited to come for a drink and a bite.

Lisa and Rick Mayer created The Mayer Collection: original acrylic art on silk, stretched over gallery-wrapped canvas. They also offer original photographic giclees on canvas in limited editions.

The Mayers had separate careers in business after college, and both said they had always had an interest in design. Lisa Mayer had a creative interest in clothing design and production, so she became a stay-at-home mother and entrepreneur. Rick Mayer, with courses in design, spent decades in construction design and business.

Both artists became interested in the ancient art of Turkish marbling, and after training and research, they joined their creative talents to produce their artwork on silk. The Mayers work to create each original piece after brainstorming their choice of colors and design.

This lady lives in Africa.

Jordan Verdin has been a photographer for the past 10 years working with non-governmental organizations which provide clean water to communities in African countries, the Dominican Republic and Haiti and who provide education and housing to human trafficking survivors in Nepal.

After Verdin obtained his degree in negotiation, conflict resolution and peace building, he decided to intersect his passion for photography and storytelling as a way to dismantle stereotypes and stigmas. Verdin has worked for years with the homeless community, capturing their portraits and also their stories.

He currently has a photographic exhibit in Oceanside featuring the portraits and stores of that community's homeless. Recently, his work has extended to refugee camps in Tijuana, Mexico.

The Z Cafe is located at 5256 S. Mission Road, Suite 103, in the River Village in Bonsall.
