Looking for something fun to do this month? How about stopping into Cannon Art Gallery in Carlsbad to see the amazing talents of one of your neighbors?
Christopher Polentz will be part of a Gallery Show at the Cannon Art Gallery at the Carlsbad Library on Dove Lane from November 6 through January 8. The Opening Reception is Saturday, November 5 from 5-7PM and it’s a fantastic opportunity to meet the artist and learn more about his work.
Christopher Polentz has lived in San Elijo Hills for 15 years with his family. He categorizes his work as “Surreal Victorian Portraiture” and it’s truly amazing to see the detail in his work. Even more so, upon observation, you feel as if you’re connecting across time with the characters themselves.
Chris’ work has been shown at CoproNason Gallery in L.A., Distinction Gallery in Escondido, Echo Gallery in Monterey and Sparks Gallery in San Diego. Now is your chance to experience his work right in your own backyard.
Chris has taught art at Palomar College, Mira Costa College, Art Center College of Design and is currently teaching at Irvine Valley College. He received his Bachelor of Arts at Art Center College of Design in 1985 and his Master of Arts from Syracuse University in 2001.
Don’t miss the opportunity to celebrate the launch of this show on Saturday, November 5 from 5-7PM and definitely take some time to pass through the gallery to see his work while on display.
Cannon Art Gallery is located at Carlsbad City Library – Dove Branch – 1775 Dove Ln, Carlsbad, CA 92011
