FORT JONES – The public is invited to attend the Marble Rim Gallery’s open house, featuring the drawings and sketches of Christos Spontylides from 6-8 p.m. this Friday, Oct. 5.
Spontylides is a trained fine artist, having received his bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Akron, Akron, Ohio, with a major in drawing. He states, “Artists of the past used drawing for preparatory studies of a subject before executing a final, finished painting in color. These sketches were never really meant to be exhibited.
Eventually, though, their inherent aesthetic value became more apparent and drawing became a “legitimate” art form. The drawings and sketches in this show are mostly of people and mostly monochromatic (some have color added). The limited use of color allows the focus to be on the rendering of form, the underlying structure, using line and value. If performed properly, a drawing can indeed have as much visual impact as a painting in full color.”
Mr. Spontylides has also had much success as a portrait artist. He has done commission works for clients throughout the state of California, with most of the demand for his work being in both the Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay areas. Outside of his own work, Spontylides has been involved with giving workshops, classes and demonstrations at the request of other artists as well as the public.
When not involved with his commissions, Spontylides enjoys working in various styles of art, ranging from impressionistic, to his own unique creations. He credits many of his artistic compositions to the influence of classical music, as he is also an accomplished pianist and musician.
The Marble Rim Gallery is a cooperative of local artists and is a fiscally sponsored project of the Siskiyou Arts Council. The Gallery is located at 11835 Main Street in downtown Fort Jones. Call the gallery at 468-5442 between 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday for additional information.
