buy-art-studioLast Chance to see the show! BuyArt Studios will host a closing reception for “Oil and Silver” Friday, June 12, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with artists Steven Looman and Dawn Morishige

This show, “Oil and Silver” will feature artwork by the Owner, Dawn Morishige as well a Collection of Landscapes and Portraits by Steven Looman.

Steven Looman is a Long Beach native who has been earning a living as a professional artist for almost 40 years. As a Commercial sculptor, he worked with fellow artists all over the world on projects ranging from tiny baby dolls to life-size dinosaurs.

For the last four years he has channeled his creative ability toward Oil Painting. “I’ve found that my real passion is painting. My perfect day is spent sitting before a canvas, pushing paint around, playing with color and light. I want to explore and interpret any subject that I find beautiful. Being free to do that is an amazing privilege.”

There will also be several new pieces by the owner, Dawn Morishige. Dawn’s Film etchings have recently been featured on HGTV, documenting the technique.

“With film etching I am able to draw attention to a particular part of a scene and/or add color to a black and white image. The etched film is then blended with resin to create a liquid, lifelike quality.”

Buyart Studios is a Local Studio Gallery that provides Custom Framing in house.

All artwork purchased during the show will receive a 10% discount on custom framing.

The Studio features an intimate setting with a beautifully painted concrete floor and wonderful lighting that provides a perfect viewing atmosphere
