The Markham Vineyards Gallery (St. Helena, California) presents “The Language of Light,” featuring the oil paintings of Philippe Gandiol.
From the gallery:
Philippe Gandiol, a Northern California painter, was born in Paris and moved to California in 1975. He has been painting with oils for over 20 years. He pursued an independent program of study, taking classes in France, San Francisco, and Sacramento and with several renowned West Coast painters. Philippe paints landscapes and cityscapes en plein air, and still lifes and models in the studio.
He works almost exclusively from life, believing that only in life can he find the full range of light and color he wants in his paintings. He is actively involved with the California artist community, art events, and juried art festivals, where he has won many awards. He teaches both privately and at the Davis Art Center. As an instructor, Philippe is appreciated as a thorough, supportive, and inspiring mentor.
“The Language of Light” is on view January 15 through April 15, 2019. For more information: www.markhamvineyards.com.
