Along the coast, a collection of outdoor and studio landscapes by artist Scott Johnson, is on view at the Portola Art Galley in November. The exhibition highlights Scott’s love for the natural landscape and the California coast, where he searches for unique places that are often hidden.

Painting exclusively in oils, Scott strives to capture the world in a style known as Impressionist Realism. Although many of his paintings feature iconic San Francisco Bay Area locations, Scott also draws inspiration from “off the beaten path” scenes.

A member of the California Art Club, Scott works directly from nature whenever possible to capture the interplay of light, values ​​and colors that can only be seen in person. He has studied with some of the world’s leading contemporary landscape and plein air artists, including Joe Paquet and Marc Dalessio. Its historical inspiration comes from artists such as John Singer Sargent, Issac Levitan, Joaquin Sorolla and Ivan Shishkin.

A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, November 19 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.; Scott is also available by appointment at the gallery. More information on Scott’s work can be found online.

The Portola Art Gallery is located at the Allied Arts Guild, 75 Arbor Road, Menlo Park.
