Laguna Niguel Photographer’s Photo To Represent Yosemite At Wildling Museum
Photographic Artist Lu Ross’ Photo “Reflections” Selected By Solvang’s Wildling Museum Of Art And Nature To Represent Yosemite National Park In Upcoming Exhibit “Celebrating National Parks In California”
LAGUNA NIGUEL CA., June 6, 2016 – Photographic Artist Lu Ross’ photo view of Yosemite’s Cathedral Rocks/Spires during sunrise, a limited edition titled “Reflections,” has been selected by Solvang’s Wildling Museum of Art and Nature as one of the photographs and art works to be displayed during the upcoming June 18 to October 3 exhibit “Celebrating National Parks in California.”
Ross is a permanent member and exhibitor at Quorum Art Gallery in Laguna Beach California, where her work has been available for view and purchase for a number of years. She has been featured in numerous publications, including Premiere OC (Orange County Magazine), Hobie Hotline Magazine, Dana Point’s visitors guide “Harboring the Good Life,” San Juan Capistrano Treasures, Laguna Beach Independent and many others.
“As a photographer, I love using natural light to capture moments of beauty,” explained Ross when asked about her work. “I took the image I call “Reflections” as the sun rose over Yosemite and hit the valley floor.”
“So much of photography is about the moment,” she continued. “When this image was taken, it was a very cold morning in April during a rainy year, one of those rare years when the plains flooded. Suddenly the sun bathed the valley and in that instant, the full beauty of Yosemite came to life.”
For almost two decades, Solvang’s Wildling Museum of Art and Nature which will be exhibiting Ross’ image, has featured work which exemplifies its mission to inspire people through art to better understand and care for nature’s dwindling natural and wilderness areas. The Wildling Museum’s exhibitions have featured works by such notables as Ansel Adams, Georgia O’Keeffe, Maynard Dixon, Carl Oscar Borg and many others. The Museum also features contemporary artists whose work reflects the Museum’s dedication to bringing awareness to specific wilderness areas.
“I take great joy in using natural light to capture moments of beauty, be that individuals, cultures or nature,” concluded Ross, who studied through the New York Institute of Photography and is a member of Professional Photographers of America. “It’s all about painting with light to tell a beautiful story, to inspire and connect the viewer to the joy of life.”
The Wildling Museum of Art and Nature is located at 1511-B Mission Drive in Solvang. Museum hours for the June 18 to October 3 exhibit “Celebrating National Parks in California” are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 11:00 AM to 5 PM; Saturday and Sunday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM, closed on Tuesdays. General Admission is $5.00, members of the military and children under 16 are free. Most exhibited works are available for sale as well as viewing.

Quorum Art Gallery celebrates anniversary in its new-look home
After running out of wall space, the artists at Quorum Art Gallery in Laguna Beach decided it was time for their growing collection to have an upgraded home.
So they embarked on a space-altering redo of the North Pacific Coast Highway site and are now ready to celebrate this new chapter in the gallery’s long history.
To mark its 53rd anniversary in the Laguna Beach art scene, Quorum’s 11 artists and one guest artist will celebrate the recent reopening on Thursday.
“We needed a new look to continue our legacy,” said artist Tim Genet, whose paintings of expressive figures adorn the white walls. “It’s a much better presentation.”
Quorum Art, which claims to be the longest established member-owned gallery in Laguna Beach, has been housed in north Laguna’s historic gallery row for 30 years.
When the gallery took over the store — which was originally a home built about 90 years ago, Genet said — a Z-shaped wall interrupted the flow. Viewers had to maneuver around the obstacle. So the collective agreed to get rid of the clunky Z wall and redo the rest of the space. The shop was closed for construction over Valentine’s Day weekend, and it reopened the first week of March. The refurbished space looks like it somehow doubled in size, Genet said during a tour in early April.
A large window raises the gallery’s visibility. The vibrant colors of the paintings on display stand out against white walls. The hanging system unifies paintings so the display appears more cohesive. And now there is no coveted spot for presenting artwork since all walls are the same size and can hold the same number of canvases.
Art is rotated every two months, and the renovated space allows for the artists to paint on-site, if they wish to do so.
Laguna Beach resident Gail Poltorak has exhibited her oil paintings depicting the beach and nature at Quorum for a year. Having been a guest artist there for six months, Poltorak said she was interested in becoming a member artist because she appreciated the gallery’s camaraderie.
Photographer and digital artist Lu Ross of Laguna Niguel became one of the Quorum’s 11 artists nearly five years ago. She said she preferred working with fellow artists in running the gallery and sharing the expenses, while also interacting with customers interested in a variety of art mediums. Ross’ photography covers culture and nature all over the world, from Laguna Beach landscapes to locations in Yosemite, Jackson Hole, Wyo.,Venice, Italy and many others.
Genet, a Fountain Valley resident who has shown his work at Laguna’s Art-A-Fair festival for 16 years, has been at Quorum for nearly a decade. He has painted landscapes and figures for 43 years and became a plein air painter in 1988.
Tourists typically want to purchase a seascape, Genet said, but there is a piece for everyone since the gallery carries portraits, florals, still lifes, abstracts and photography, among other mediums.
The artists said they are excited to share the co-operative’s new look with the community during Art Walk, when artists share the stories behind their work over wine and appetizers.
“It’s like a family here,” Poltorak said. “We all love Laguna and encourage everyone to support the arts.”
