Event Description Lois Stecker passed away September 2011, at the age of 92. An irreplaceable and much loved character in the San Diego art scene, Lois attended nearly every single art reception in town. Legend has it she even showed up at one opening in a body cast. We at the Athenaeum knew to expect her at 6:30 on the dot for each gallery reception, her camera ready and a smile on her face. She, herself, was a painter and photographer as well as an active member of the SDMA Artists Guild, Clairemont Art Guild, and San Diego Art Institute. Her artwork is held in many private and corporate collections, including Scripps Green Hospital and the Southland Corporation. Her personal art collection is a "whos who" of San Diego artists: Kathleen Marshall, Italo Scanga, Anne Mudge, Mary Ellen Long, Richard Allen Morris just to name a few. Her collection will be exhibited and bids will be accepted starting January 5. The closing of the silent auction will begin at 8pm on Friday, January 25. What Comes To Mind is the artists role as visual translator across disciplines of art and medical science and art and our endangered global environment. We are no more separated from the natural world than our embodied mind, though we behave as if we were. We are of nature, born of water, at home in a blue striated marble, 70% water, orbiting in a universe that we have discovered is but one of many universes in perhaps infinite space. Within ourselves we share remnant chemical constituents with every living thing and a common evolutionary past through millennia. We can live without food for some time but we cannot live without water. Wall books in the exhibit ask "What Shall We Do When The River Runs Dry?" when we have overused our common supply. There are drawings and dimensional drawings of Limbs and Trunks as visual metaphors for our identity with the natural world. There is a walk-in book of wild birds and grasses. What comes to mind is that we are temporal, in a continual now. The past is memory, translated to artists slide books of brain images and Memory Pictures. There are tunnel books with brain scan movies as if in a wonderland of images in the mysterious realm of consciousness, of origins still unexplained.

Event Description Meyer Fine Art (MFA) opens the New Year with a solo exhibition for SD artist Walter Wojtyla. The exhibition, “Then and Now”, consists of artwork from the 1950s to newly created pieces. See how Wojtyla’s work has evolved from his early days on the east coast, to his years in Mexico, to his last 40 years in SD. MFA invites you to meet the artist on the opening night of this exciting exhibition. Wojtyla is one of San Diego’s hidden treasures. The upcoming 2013 retrospective includes not only paintings but also Wojtyla’s works in charcoals, pencil, mixed media, etc. In anticipation of this show, gallery owner/art director, Perry Meyer, requested that Wojtyla do a limited, small edition etching. “Nude in bath”, published by Meyer Fine Art, is the artist’s first etching in 50 years. It was previewed at the Art San Diego venue in September 2012. Wojtyla is now hand-coloring some of the edition.
