New art exhibitions to open at Fallbrook Library


Last updated 11/14/2019 at 6:31pm

"Redemption" by Richard Stergulz is seen in its beginning stage, in process and finished.

FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Library opens two new exhibits Nov. 17, including "From Start to Finish," an inside look at how artists develop their paintings, and "Echoes of the Earth," whimsical figurative sculptures by Cheryl Tall. The exhibitions are hosted by the Friends of the Fallbrook Library.

"From Start to Finish" is displayed in the community room and demonstrates the "behind the scenes" steps of the creative process in making a finished painting. The 3 a.m. preliminary sketches, the color comps, the thoughts, edits and changes leading to the final piece will be shown next to the finished, framed paintings giving viewers a glimpse into what the artists were thinking along the way.

Curator Richard Stergulz, co-founder of the Green Art House, has invited professional artists Brian Bates, Linda Herzog, Daniel Marquez, Vicki Pedersen and Leslie Sweetland to join him in showing how artists get their ideas from concept to canvas.

Carol Zaleski, fine arts director of Friends of the Fallbrook Library said, "We usually get to see the final framed work of art on the wall but never the thoughts and sketches from the process leading up to it. This is a rare learning opportunity."

"Echos of the Earth" features figurative clay sculptures on the patio by Tall, a Southern California-based artist who focuses on the relationships between people and their life stories in her work. She is especially known for her pinch coil technique, which gives her pieces an unusual texture reminiscent of wood shingles or scales.

Her color palette is derived from tropical landscapes and places she has traveled or lived. Her sculptures have been featured in 24 books and are displayed in museums and private collections.

An artists' reception will be held Friday, Nov. 22, from 6-8 p.m. Live music will be provided. The exhibits and reception are free and open to all. The show runs through Jan. 3. The library is located at 124 S. Mission Road in Fallbrook.
