Rock Island Gallery Brings an Exciting Mix of Artists and Styles to Coronado Island, CA

Share Article

Coronado, California, renowned for its pristine beaches and turn of the century architecture is the new home of Rock Island Gallery. Owner Mark Cohen is making waves of his own with an eclectic blend of artistic styles that includes original oils and acrylics, mixed media on wood, watercolors on clay board, and enchanting hand blown glass creations.

Befitting its location, Rock Island offers a beautiful collection of surf and beach scenes by local San Diego artists Catherine Dzialo-Haller and Jesse Miller. However, the subject matter is as varied as the artistic media. Cindy Clarke's oversized acrylic paintings of wine and food will tempt your eyes and palate. If you're wondering how to add color and energy to a big wall in your new downtown loft, order a serving of "Cooking With Wine" or "Merlot For Two".

If introspective contemplation is more your style, Deborah-Valiquet-Meyers' mixed media will draw you into a world of ancient visions and dreams of the future. And, if you just want to laugh, artist/author Jamie Hayes' whimsical serigraphs of Bluesman, Peter the Pianoeater, and the Blimp Pilots will bring a smile to your face.

Kadir Nelson's dramatic oil paintings take viewers deep within the heart and mind of the professional athlete. Nelson's paintings can be found in the personal collections of Denzel Washington, Venus Williams, Spike Lee, Will Smith and other celebrities. Kadir has completed several commissions for Major League Baseball, and his latest work, a towering oil painting of Ted Williams, is on display at the San Diego Hall of Champions.

Rock Island Gallery is pleased to offer art for every budget. There is a table full of 8 x 10 matted prints for under $15, signed posters and prints for under $50, signed limited edition lithographs for $50 - $250, and giclees ranging in price from $450 - $1250. If you collect only originals, you'll find watercolors valued at $300 - $800, and oil paintings ranging from $2400 - $12,000.

Rock Island Gallery is open seven days a week, and special artist receptions will begin later this month. Art enthusiasts are encouraged to send contact information to to be placed on the gallery mailing list for future events.
