Gallery JS will host an Artist Reception featuring the work of Joshua Serafin on Saturday, June 4 from 5 to 9 p.m.
Gallery JS is coming up on its first year being open in Riviera Village. JS stands for Joshua Serafin, oil painter and Jill Sanders, photographer. Joshua Serafin will be releasing his latest oil paintings, Good Fortune, where he paints on the back of tempered glass.
Good Fortune is about the tranquility of the underwater world. Serafin is at the forefront of bringing back this ancient art form known as reverse painting. With over 22 years in the studio, Serafin is taking reverse painting to captivating levels.
He builds 10 to 15 layers over a 2 to 3 month period before completing a painting. Often he will incorporate gold or silver leaf to give it that extra play with light.
Serafin has been combing beach towns since 2000 making his living as an artist at various art shows. He has reached his goal of opening his first gallery in Redondo Beach. He hopes to inspire and enlighten locals and tourists with works of art that represent the culture we live in. Collectors often tell him his paintings bring peace and happiness into their homes.
Serafin grew up in Huntington Beach, influenced by the sand, sun, music, and waves. He graduated from California State University, Long Beach, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art, emphasis painting. Many Orange County, San Diego and Los Angeles residents own Joshua Serafin originals and reproductions. His work can be found at various art shows and galleries along the California coast.
All are welcome to attend!
