Painter Justin Pastores currently works with both transparent and opaque water media. Often working in sketchbooks, Pastores's subjects range from a combination of figures, landscapes, and illustrative work. Themes explored include identity, urban/social observation, and acculturation. His scale of work can be described as pocket size, as many of the images and surfaces are under postcard scale.

Pastores was included in Bynd Artisan's Perfect Sketchbook group show, Interlace, in Singapore. He placed first at the second Annual Benicia Plein Air Paint Out along with receiving the Artist Choice Award in summer 2017. In early 2017, he exhibited and lectured with his collective Epekto Art Projects at the Wailoa Arts & Cultural Center in Hilo, Hawai'i. Upon receiving a BFA in Traditional Arts from California State University, East Bay, he was also the recipient of the Friends of the Arts Scholarship Award and his painting "#Nofilter" was collected by the university. He has exhibited across the Bay Area including Oakland, Berkeley, Novato, and San Francisco. He works as an art instructor for Cal Color Academy in Fremont and lives in Alameda.

painting

Tina von Nachtigal works as a studio artist in San Rafael. A Bay Area native, Tina finds beauty and meaning in her surroundings. From the way dappled light breaks through trees, to the beaches, and the fog that sweeps everything up in its cozy embrace.

After chronic vertigo and photosensitivity made her put down screens and turn back to her true path, fine art, she regained an appreciation for the richness in analog and nature.

Photosensitivity changed the way she viewed the world around her. Foggy overcast days became a necessary shelter from the light. This light sensitivity awakened a keen awareness of her environment and she began having flashes of delicately lit organic forms. These shapes and patterns are present in her work today. In 2017 that she transitioned into producing work that is fully abstract, using acrylics to explore these visions.

She currently resides in Marin County. And she no longer takes for granted the nature that is steps from her door and inspires her to keep her work wild and free.

watercolor, pen & ink, multimedia

Naomi Alessandra studied comparative literature before embarking on a career in fashion illustration and design. Recently she has turned her attention to telling visual stories on a more substantial scale with large works on paper and hand-painted animations. 

“I am interested in the portrayal of the inconsistencies, aberrations, and inherent dynamism of my subjects. Any story worth telling contains characters who embody contradictory impulses, and who mutate depending on the perspective from which they are examined. The multiplicity of the human experience and the impossibility of collapsing a human story into a single narrative fascinates me—that impossibility itself is the story I seek to tell. Visually, this translates into my practice of shoving multiple points of view, varied moments in time, or paradoxical character attributes into one frame.”

Lara Myers

The Max Thelen Studio Residency

documentary installation art

Lara Myers is an Army brat, the godchild of a Charo back-up singer, a former dancer for the San Francisco band, ArmaGetItOn, and a documentary visual artist who calls Marin County her home. 

In the past two years, her work has been shown at Art Works Downtown in three juried shows: ShelterClimate Change; and Marin Contemporary; and in her Underground Gallery solo show, The 138 Houses We Lived In When We Were 10, Drawn From Memory Alone.

Her materials and techniques vary greatly between her projects, from needlefelting, soft sculpture, and work that enlists the participation and content contribution from other people, such as The 138 Houses installation and the current 9/11 recollection project, An Exact Moment In Time.

“I want to involve people in the process of artmaking by revealing my thought process and working process; demonstrating and allowing people to try each technique; and by encouraging people to convey their stories, memories, recollections and experiences, and then see them translated into collaborative art installations.”

“I need to discover what type of and how much participation, interaction, and contribution people are willing to do in an art project. My self-challenge is to push this type of work to its limits and the Max Thelen Studio Residency at Art Works Downtown is the perfect opportunity and place to do so.”

drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics

Meg Regelous, a resident of Novato, has studied full-time at the College of Marin for the past five years enrolled in art studio classes in drawing, oil painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography, and jewelry. 

"I create work from my heart, and what comes of that can be sweet, haunting, or frightfully intimate. I make each piece deliberately and often obsessively, drawing from the beauty and visually rich reality in which I have grown up. I take advantage of pursuing an interdisciplinary course as one media feeds into the other in inspiring ways. For instance, printmaking techniques and painting are integral parts of my ceramic sculptures. However, the cornerstone of my practice has always been drawing and it feeds into each of my endeavors." www.meg-regelous-qx0c.squarespace.com

The Max Thelen Studio Residency is made possible with the financial support of the Fenwick Foundation.
