Gallery East -  David Yapp

November 12 - December 28, 2018

Reception: Dec. 7, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

McKinley Gallery East hosts "California Landscapes," an exhibition of paintings in oils and watercolors by artist David Yapp. When working with oils Yapp creates his paintings using a combination of brushes, palette knives, and sgraffito techniques to create a multi-layered relief to the painting. Working on location leads to a very “holistic painting experience.” All senses are engaged: sight, hearing, touch, smell and sometimes even the taste of the elements in the surrounding environment.

David Yapp currently lives in the western Sierra foothills, giving him ready access to hike and paint California’s exquisite mountain scenery. He developed a love for painting and sketching on location while studying wildlife illustration in Carmarthen, Wales. He now focuses on capturing landscapes primarily in oils and watercolor. More of his work can be found on his website.

 Gallery West - Edward Alfano

November 12 - December 28, 2018 Reception: Dec. 6, 5:00 - 7:00 PM

McKinley Gallery West hosts photographer Edward Alfano. "Luminance" is a collection of photographs that attempt to portray the past in the exact moment that they are captured. Light and shadow are emphasized through the use of infrared film, allowing the viewer to look deeper into the photograph. Alfano’s photographs focus on creating images that “explore time and space as a continuum that allows the viewer to contemplate and interpret.”

Edward Alfano began his educational career in biology. His graduate studies included plant anatomy and plant ultrastructure. From experimenting with light and electron microscopes, his fascination with photography began and in turn, led him to redirect his focus. It wasn’t until he entered his Ph.D. program that he devoted all of his attention to photography. Alfano began teaching at California State University in 1989 after working as a commercial photographer and has devoted his energy since 1999 to fine art photography and teaching. He exhibits his work nationally and internationally and is included in both university and private collections. More of his work can be found on his website.
