About the Artists contributing to Benefit:
November 6th Benefit for Doggies 911 Rescue features three seasoned artists.
Alan Johnson, Woodworking Artist
Alan Johnson's woodworking encompasses usable artistic furnishing and whimsical comfortable designs which tantalize the eye with the beauty of natural wood. Alan Johnson, business entrepreneur and co-founder of civic groups like Grand Vision Foundation, the San Pedro Business Improvement District and First Thursday, found straight lines woodworking too confining, and taught himself to steam wood to make curves. Johnson became enamored with Baltic birch plywood, the many possibilities and patterns it offers and the hundreds of hours it takes to shape it. Alan finds chair making the most compelling. He likes the challenge of creating exciting designs that must be comfortable and functional, with room for a touch of whimsy.
Stan Hicks, Ink and Watercolor Artist:
Stan Hicks, graduate from Cincinnati Conservatory of Art, artist and designer for aerospace industries, and commissioned artist at the Long Beach California Firefighters Museum and the Warner Grand Theatre will display and sell his unique ink and watercolor paintings at this Benefit for Doggies 911 Rescue.
Gena Gaspar, Oil and Canvas Artist:
Gena Gaspar, San Pedro Artist with oils on canvas describes, “There is nothing more interesting than suddenly finding yourself surrounded by new smells, new climate, new language, new religions, new costumes, new cars, terrible traffic, different foods, and different people. That’s what I painted. To me color is energy, heat, movement. So I absorb where I lived. By osmosis I began to understand what I wanted the canvas to reflect. I lived and painted in Panama City, Panama, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Bucaramanga, Columbia, Calcutta, India Port Au Prince, Haiti, and Mexico City. I showed and sold in all those countries and my paintings are all over the world.”
