“Solvang Meets London” - A solo exhibition by Alexander Onley.


Alexander Onley brings together his large-scale oil paintings of the Solvang, California countryside with city, land and interior views of London, England, based on his own travels. Both series of works articulate Onley's preoccupation with analogizing the experience of place. The semi-abstract paintings distill the drama each site uniquely holds and provide the contradictory proposition that such drama is both temporal to their viewer and an inherent quality.


“The means of creating imagery begins well before I start painting – when still within the place I’ve traveled to. It is a place in possession of significant qualities that yields an experience of visual drama. Sometimes it’s obvious. Sometimes it is subtle. Either way, it is the drama of a truthful experience. The paintings are the result of a distillation, and the method is abstract analogy. What you see on canvas is my proposition of that place. Relationship to environment, both natural and man-made, is complex. Interestingly, it seems both “in the moment” and timeless. My work is an individual formal approach to that relationship.” - Alexander Onley

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved founder and dear friend, Gloria Delson.


Gloria has been visionary in every chapter of her life. 


An award-winning sculptor in her own right, she was an avid collector, setting herself apart in her ability to spot raw talent.


As an art dealer she discovered, mentored and nurtured countless artists, many of whom became close & devoted friends.


Gloria was fearless. She exemplified spirit, sophistication and class, while being absolutely real and 100 % authentic.


One of her most defining traits was her genuine and infinite curiosity. Gloria loved people; people were her drug.


She was a humanist in the truest sense of the word. Fiercely liberal, she had a huge heart, a quick wit and a raucous sense of humor.


She was a modern woman, ahead of her time, fighting in the front lines of the women’s lib movement and speaking out against injustice wherever she encountered it. 


She always believed in the best in people and lifted them up, so they may believe in themselves.


She was a deeply loyal friend, generous to a fault. Her door was always open, her ear was always yours.


A connoisseur of art, food, wine, literature and politics, she equally valued the simple pleasures – every day, no matter what – work ceased, to observe the sunset.


She possessed an inherent wisdom that recognized and cherished what mattered most in life. 


She personified the term “aging gracefully”; taking adversity in stride, adjusting with patience and dignity.


She was a mentor, a mother, a teacher, a friend – a shining light on my firmament.


Rest in peace, glorious soul. The world is better for your fingerprints.
