Mertens Fine Art Gallery, in conjunction with the Montecito Aesthetic Institute, announces an exhibition of the work of three artists:
o Douglas Dubler, a fashion and beauty photographer who was mentored by Ansel Adams and Isamu Noguchi in his early creative life;
o Wesley E. Johnson, a painter and UCSB graduate whose works have been widely exhibited throughout the Western United States including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and
o Patricia Crosby Hinds, a painter whose works refer to a range of artistic experiences that reflect greater art movements since the mid-century, including abstract expressionism, installations, hard edge geometric configurations, and collage.
20% of the proceeds from the exhibition will benefit Santa Barbara based Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International, a nonprofit, humanitarian organization that provides medical, surgical, and educational services by volunteer ophthalmic surgeons with the primary objective of restoring sight to disadvantaged blind individuals worldwide.
