"Regional Artists Show"
2002-08-15 until 2002-09-15
San Diego Art Institute
San Diego, CA, USA United States of America

Featured Artist: Alo Munizza in the eye of the beholder This exhibition is an eclectic work of images showing my love of both animate and inanimate subjects. Photography loves banal objects and when it is well done it can bring passion to these objects. Passion is so necessary to all creative endeavors.

Munizza is more than a world traveler who makes the most of the exotic places with her photography; she is an artist who can add more magic to what are already incredible images. Most photographers would be happy with the original images that Munizza captures with her camera, but Munizzas work really begins in the darkroom. That is where the magic begins. Her techniques include cropping, sandwiching two negatives together, inserting various materials between the enlarger head and the paper, and/or painting with photographic ink. As a result, Munizza has earned a place as Featured Artist for the fifth time.

Featured Artist: Annie Dover Into The Story: Italia My quest is to reign in visual and emotional experience for the show. I was charmed by the multi-hued walls, doors and shuttered windows with the combinations that reminded me of double scooped Gelato cones. Born and raised in San Diego, California, Annie Dover graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in Psychology and Music. She earned an MA in Counseling through the Department of Education, SDSU. She also holds an AA in Art. She has studied painting with Vladimir Medencia and Willie McGrath, but she is an independent and largely self-taught artist who has been active in the region for over 20 years. She has adopted a multitude of approaches to her work; from personal symbolism to psychological portraiture/figurative to California plein-air painting. Her current work is characterized by strong color under intense light giving shape to the form. Her oil paintings are of real life experience tinged with romantic realism. Annie Licari Dover has been the recipient of many awards: Jurors Choice, Grumbacher Award, 2nd and 3rd Place at the Del Mar Fair in realistic oil painting and this year 1st Place at the Del Mar Fair in realistic oil painting. She is represented by Santa Ysabel Gallery. This is the second time Dover has been a Featured Artist at SDAI.
