North Atlantic #10 by Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds February 18 to March 19, 2016

Paintings by Santa Clara artist Ryan Reynolds will be on view in the Downstairs Hallway Gallery and the Lobby Gallery.  Ryan received his MFA from UC Berkeley, has shown his work nationally, and recently completed a successful and enriching residency at the Ballinglen Center for the Arts in County Mayo, Ireland.  A series of small watercolor paintings from this experience in the North Atlantic will be installed in the hallway.  His large format landscapes, which seem to lead the viewer through passages of time as well as space, will be located in the lobby.
