Anthony Holdsworth paints on location, usually on the streets of cities, from neighborhoods to industrial areas to the downtown. He believes that the urban landscape is an accurate and disquieting testament to the human condition. “The power to cope, to move forward depends on seeing our immediate reality. We live in an alienated society bombarded with consumer propaganda which blind us to the reality of the places we inhabit.” He seeks to counter this process of alienation by encountering specific places first hand.

After being introduced to oils by the well-known Massachusetts painter, Loring Coleman, Anthony Holdsworth embarked on a painting career in Florence, Italy. He continued his studies at The Bournemouth College of Art in England. He has exhibited with major galleries throughout California and has been featured in local and national publications as well as on television.

He received a ‘Western States Art Federation N.E.A.’ fellowship and a ‘California Discovery Awards Gold Medal’. In 1996 he received both an Oakland Heritage Alliance ‘Partnership in Preservation Award’ and an ‘Oakland Business Arts Award’.

Beryl Landau calls her work “symbolic landscape”. The acrylic paintings depict geographical places but evoke inner feelings. Each landscape draws the viewer into a particular space and mood. Her clear colors range from high contrasts to subtle gradations. The subjects vary from familiar California scenes to more exotic locations from her travels. Some of the images are close-ups, while others show more farsighted views.

Beryl Landau received the Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Art degrees from San Francisco Art Institute. Her teachers included Richard Diebenkorn, Elmer Bischoff and Joan Brown.
