Four Fauves in California

Two of the New Fauves, Kathleen Elsey and Ken Christensen, recently exhibited with two other fauve painters, Paul Brown and Sarah Carr, in an exhibit in Santa Barbara at the Corridan Gallery. The gallery exploded in color from the bright collection of works. Elsey and Christensen were in fine fettle and Paul Brown's large pieces bordered on abstraction. The pastels of Carr were more traditional and yet rich in color. The exhibit was well received by the local art aficionados in Santa Barbara. Christensen continues to exhibit as a permanent part of the Corridan Gallery.
