Summer time is just around the corner and the Festival of Arts is excited to announce its newest exhibit, Fresh Faces 2018. Presenting the works of newly juried Festival artists, the exhibit will showcase a wide range of mediums including painting, sculpture, glass, pastels, photography, mixed media and more. Fresh Faces 2018 runs now through June 1 at the Festival of Arts Third Floor Gallery at Wells Fargo Bank in Laguna Beach.

Fresh Faces 2018 showcases a fascinating look into the world of the innovative and fresh new artwork of fourteen prestigious artists from Orange County. The artists and mediums being presented are Richard Bohn (sculpture), Jorge Burtin (glass), Gil Delinger (pastels), Lani Emanuel (oil painting), Carolyn Johnson (mixed media), Maaria Kader (scratchboard), Eileen McCullough (watercolors), Corine Schaff (hand-painted silk), Laura Seeley (acrylics), Joshua Serafin (mixed media), Andrew and Rebeca Snider (photography), Stephen Swintek (photography) and Sue Thompson (acrylics).

Born into a family of artists, Bradford Salamon worked as a professional illustrator, opening studios in Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Fountain Valley before relocating to Los Angeles in 2013. Before his move, he exhibited at the Festival of Arts for eight years. His study of significant, historical painters has enabled him to develop a unique blend of classical and contemporary approaches to his method of painting.

This exhibit at foaSOUTH showcases his unique portraits of vintage objects alongside his painting “Red Billow Camera” which was acquired by the Festival of Arts Permanent Art Collection in 2012.

“Bradford’s current series, on view at foaSOUTH, includes larger than life paintings of vintage images and objects expressing a dynamic complement of texture and atmosphere that patently illustrate his signature style,” said exhibit curator Pat Sparkuhl.
