Tonight PAL welcomes Hannah Rothstein and 6 other artists for the opening reception of "The Blue Marble" from 5:30-8pm at 668 Ramona Street in Downtown Palo Alto. * * Published in The NY Times, TIME, The Guardian, Vogue Italia, and more, Rothstein is redefining art in the eyes of the Millennial Generation. Bridging both millennial's taste for irony-clad humor and their concerns regarding the world around them, Rothstein’s work spans a wide variety of topics, sentiments, and media. * * Rothstein’s more recent work reflects her generation’s anxiety about a future that feels increasingly unstable. Rothstein’s newest work gives voice to her generation’s concerns about keeping the fabric of society from fraying in the face of a rapidly changing world. * * #pacificartleague #pal #art #gallery #art school #artclass #artists #exhibition #artgallery #california #sfbayarea #paloalto #nasa #sierraclub #sierraclub_lomaprieta #environmentalvolunteers #BarbaraBoissevain #SukeyBryan #Steve Curl #JoeDecker #MicheleGuieu #QTLuong #HannahRothstein

PAL welcomes QT Luong's large format landscape photography works in "The Blue Marble" opening this Friday. * * Born in Paris to Vietnamese parents QT was originally trained as a scientist and his life was transformed in the early 80s when he took up mountain climbing in the Alps and found photography as a means to show people the wonders he had seen on the high peaks of the Alps. * * After moving to UC-Berkeley for school, he fell in love with the rich tradition of American landscape photography and learned to use the large format camera. QT set forth on a monumental nature photography project that had not been completed by anyone: photographing all of them in on large format film. * * #pacificartleague #pal #art #gallery #art school #artclass #artists #exhibition #artgallery #california #sfbayarea #paloalto #nasa #sierraclub #sierraclub_lomaprieta #environmentalvolunteers #BarbaraBoissevain #SukeyBryan #Steve Curl #JoeDecker #MicheleGuieu #QTLuong #HannahRothstein

Exhibiting in "The Blue Marble" is long time PAL instructor and artist Steve Curl. As an artist and avid outdoorsmen, Steve's watercolors often reflect his outdoor explorations all around the Pacific Northwest. * * According to Steve, "All of my paintings seek to capture my experience where a turn in the trail has caught my eye, and I am again witness to the rush of beauty and the life force unfolding before me. Always, I feel blessed to be part of such natural beauty and the dance of light. My paintings are recordings of these inspired moments... of what is fresh, immediate, and alive, and what in my estimation is true and real." * * Join us for the opening of "Blue Marble" on Friday, Sept 6 (5:30-8pm) and see artwork by Steve and other artists. * * #pacificartleague #pal #art #gallery #artschool #artclass #artists #exhibition #artgallery #california #sfbayarea #paloalto #nasa #sierraclub #sierraclub_lomaprieta #environmentalvolunteers #BarbaraBoissevain #SukeyBryan #Steve Curl #JoeDecker #MicheleGuieu #QTLuong #HannahRothstein
