Artist Exhibit, Lynn Ben Chetrit - Extreme Quilter
03/11/2024 - 04/22/2024
Lynn’s quilts have a rustic quality, using rustic subject matter. She loves exploring faces and facial expressions and have translated that into the faces of animals. Lynn says “A quilt is something that is made with love and handed down to future generations. As time goes by, quilts get worn, torn, split, uneven, and disintegrated. They are mended and patched and continued to be used”. Lynn's quilts will be on exhibit in the Resource Center.

Artist Exhibit, Wes Van Dyke - Painter
07/18/2024 - 08/29/2024
Wes is a life long resident of Agoura Hills. Born into a family of actors, Wes took his creativity in a different direction. Wes has a love for the outdoors and this passion has inspired much of his art. Having surfed since he was five, he feels a strong connection with the ocean. It is no surprise that many of his early paintings were of beautiful seascapes. Wes’ artwork will be on exhibit in the Resource Center.

Artist Exhibit, Steve Brown - Painter
08/30/2024 - 10/11/2024
Steve started painting in his teens, including en plein air before he knew what that was. Watercolor and hiking combined, out there in nature. Since then, he’s had a long career in commercial art as an illustrator, graphic designer, art director – and was an immediate and enthusiastic adopter of digital graphics as a powerful complement to the analog art tools he’s continued to use. After spending many years in that world creating art for clients, it was time to return to creating art for himself, his family and friends. Back in the realm of paint and not pixels. His personal art path from here on will focus on paintings that capture special moments, places and times, and encourage the viewer’s imagination to take it from there.

Artist Exhibit, Adonna Ebrahimi - Painter
02/18/2025 - 04/01/2025
Instead of holding a paintbrush, Adonna challenges herself to use natural objects from the outdoors and discarded items from the home. The contrast of these dual sources brings competing energy to the process. Flowers have a general, basic design that repeats in thousands of forms. And when one flower combines with some others - of the same species or not - in a single spot, the result can mesmerize an unsuspecting viewer.
