“I find myself returning to the same site to paint over and over again, this gives me a clue to what is changeable about the landscape and what is enduring and consistent about it. I also find I do the best large paintings of landscapes that I have studied intensely and know intimately. For me this knowledge can only be acquired by repeated visits to a site.”   –Ann Lofquist

PAM CARROLL Solo Show at Winfield Gallery: Painted From Nature


Benefit for Mario Alunan

Mario has been instrumental in the last number of years for artwork delivery to clients and picking up from artists.  He has also helped clients install work in their homes, and has been a trusted member of the art community for over 15 years.

He has recently begun treatment for cancer and while he has insurance coverage, we are trying to help him cover his living expenses while he undergoes treatment and through his recovery period.  We welcome any cash donations, but have also had a number of artists donate artwork that can be purchased on his behalf with 100% of the  proceeds going to Mario.  These pieces can be found at the link below.  Thank you for your consideration.

Shot Glasses at Winfield Gallery

Shot Glasses

The first documented use of the expression “shot glass” appeared in the New York Times, sometime during the 1940s. The origin of the term is mysterious in the way of liquor-infused folklore, but these compact drinking vessels define a mythological moment in the American psyche. In how many theatrical scenes have we witnessed the swift downing of an ounce of whiskey preceding the revealing moment or the critical action? For seventy-five years now, these nifty glasses have made a cultural statement that we somehow understand intuitively.

Drinking whiskey from a shot glass infers a kind of ritual, particularly when two or more people share the experience. In its most positive connotations, the act might seal an agreement or a bond of friendship, celebrate or memorialize an occasion or event, or bolster courage for a difficult task ahead. Drinking a shot of something strong from a small but weighty glass is a very different experience than sipping a cocktail, a beer, or a glass of wine. The sense of marking a moment as worthy of note, short but powerfully potent, lends a shot glass the status of a precious object, and it is one that many people do in fact collect.

With this in mind, gallery owner Chris Winfield invited four highly regarded artisans to imagine and design their own interpretations of shot glasses. Willy Strasser, a long time Santa Cruz resident and silversmith, renowned woodcarver Nick Lamb, a native of England now living in Montana, and two Santa Cruz ceramic artists, Susie Ketchum and Carlos Dye all have a significant and well-regarded body of work to call upon. Each has brought a singular perspective to the challenge, and fashioned their version of a shot glass worthy of any sort of memorable moment.

NOCTURNES: From Dusk till Dawn

May 1st through June 18th, 2017

The Winfield Gallery is proud to present Nocturnes: From Dusk Till Dawn, a small, museum-quality exhibition of Nocturne paintings from the late 19th Century to the present. This theme is particularly relevant to the Monterey Peninsula because of the early, then radical, work of Charles Rollo Peters. Peters, a Monterey resident, specialized in mysterious nighttime paintings often of ruined adobes. His work was successfully exhibited widely in New York, San Francisco, even London, where his paintings were reportedly admired by James Abbott McNeil Whistler. The early 20th Century “night paintings” by Lockwood de Forest are small and study-like but with a somber, poetic mood.

The more contemporary works in the exhibition present the nighttime experience in a variety of ways. Ann Lofquist’s sweeping view from above of Los Angeles with its hazy lights and rich atmosphere brings the Nocturne to the present. The apparently matter-of-fact commercial buildings in Marc Trujillo’s paintings glow like lanterns against the night sky. They are tour de force observational studies of a variety of light sources and reflections.

Los Angeles artist, Peter Alexander, abstracts the night in much the same way that Whistler did. Bay area artist Holly Lane builds elaborate dark frames that then reveal jewel-like images of mysterious landscapes. David Hines’ stark country nightscapes have a portentous, even David Lynch-like foreboding to them. David Ligare’s “Fire in the Desert,” has a primal, even biblical presence.

Artists: Peter Alexander, Frederick Brosen, Noah Buchanan, Pam Carroll, Warren Chang, Carla Crawford, Lockwood De Forest, Bruce Everett, Deanne Forbes, Frank Galuszka, David Hines, Andrea Johnson, Mari Kloeppel, Holly Lane, Chris Leib, David Ligare, Ann Lofquist, Ed Mell, David Molesky, David Molteni, Gillian Pederson-Krag, Charles Rollo Peters, Kristine Reiner-Hansen, Paul Roehl, Sandra Mendelsohn Rubin, Marc Trujillo, Joaquin Turner

Water Works at Winfield Gallery July 14th thru August 12th


Winfield Gallery is proud to present Water Works Paintings by Sandra Mendelshon Rubin. A consummate illusionist, Sandra Mendelsohn Rubin paints meticulous and haunting observations in carefully curated portions. Her representational painting conjures a magical sphere; the artist’s sleight of hand produces a visually convincing three-dimensional scene on a portable, two-dimensional surface.

Rubin’s fascination with aerial perspective convinced her to go up in a small plane to photograph the terrain herself. The subject of water and its activation of the landscape particularly engaged her. As with all her aerial paintings, she combs through hundreds of images to draw out the material needed to craft her compositions.

“I paint with a relentless conviction to make tangible every aspect of my subject.” —Sandra Mendelshon Rubin

Her immense pictorial power lies in what can only be an empathic comprehension of the synergistic relationship of color and light, which enables her to evoke the very air. One cannot help but be struck with the reality of her love affair with the immersive process of recording the seen world as well. As she says, “I do believe there is something sacred and enduring in this disciplined act of truthfulness.” Rubin makes believers of us all.

As a recent M.F.A. graduate of the University of California Los Angeles in 1981, Sandra Mendelshon Rubin won the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s prestigious “Young Talent Award,” and has been represented by the highly

regarded L.A. Louver Gallery since that time. Nearly forty years on—and well after the receipt of two National Endowment for the Arts grants in 1981 and 1991—she was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2012.

David Ligare at Winfield Gallery June 3rd – July 5th

David Ligare’s and John Steinbeck’s visionary California is lush, edenic and pastoral. But the pastoral is a tricky designation. Traditionally, it signifies cultivated and harmonious space between wilderness and civilization. When the world is too much with us, the pastoral soothes. Cultivated nature restores sanity. We bend our knees. Find solace. To look at a Ligare painting seems an act of sanity, just as reading Steinbeck’s descriptions of the land connect us to the haunted beauty of Central California. Even when California hills are bathed in late afternoon light—Ligare’s favored time– change hovers. Steinbeck’s narrative is Ligare’s vision: we gaze longingly at the ideal, knowing it’s elusive, that light fades.

Both Steinbeck’s and Ligare’s California landscapes are sharply etched and deeply felt. This matter of seeing is no mean task, for it involves a kind of double vision; keen sight and insight. Artist and writer pay rapt attention to the changing colors of California hills–tawny, golden, sear. Both love “dumpling summer clouds,” “round comfortable oaks,” and hills “bathed in pale cold sunshine.” Ligare’s paintings capture his own “wonder of light on an object.” Steinbeck’s Cannery Row is a place that exists in the “hour of pearl,” a time between darkness and dawn, a time bathed in mystery.

In a Ligare painting and a Steinbeck novel, the perceiving eye and the human heart are joined so that familiar landscapes and ordinary light are transformed, our own understanding of place reconfigured.

—Susan Shillinglaw,
Author of Carol & John Steinbeck: Portrait of a Marriage
