Night Visions
December 3, to December 31. 2015

Solo Exhibition: Mark Hosmer


The term Chiaroscuro refers to an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction on a surface. The word describes the treatment of light and shade in drawing and painting.


Las Laguna Gallery is pleased to present
the works or Mark Hosmer.

Hosmer is a California based artist who works with oil paint to create narratives that explore desolation, romance, and mood. Through the use of light he explores extreme low-key and high-contrast lighting which forces the viewers to investigate what may be lurking in the shadows. His representational works explore streets, homes, churches, highways, and businesses. The images are devoid of people, but are filled with life.


"A street may suggest movement or destination, but an empty street at 4a.m. suggests that there is nowhere to go nor reason to go there, so just be here, now. Be quiet and know that God is. Some of my pictures are just a pretty scene or an appreciation of a well-restored house. But most have an undercurrent of something not quite known or something lost. Not "meaning" or symbolism, but an invitation to look beneath the surface." - Hosmer.

Talent Plus
November 5, to November 28, 2015

Guest Artist: Nick Reszetar

The word talent originally was meant to represent a unit of mass. It was used in ancient times in Greece, the Roman Empire, and the Middle East to weigh precious metals like gold and silver. The word is often tied to the parable in the Bible Matthew 25:14-30, that explains that one should not hide a God given endowment, and that even one talent is a large sum.

The word talent is now used to describe ones natural and abilities, aptitudes, and inclinations to do something extremely well.

For this exhibition; local, national, and international artists submitted work for this open theme show. The results are inspiring and remarkable.

Bring Us Your Dead
October 1 to  October 30, 2015



Las Laguna Gallery is pleased to present a artist exhibition inspired by the Day of the Dead.

Las Laguna Gallery invites you to explore a unique journey of love, life, and death. Through the medium of art; artists explore Día de los Muertos; an important Mexican holiday that honors deceased loved ones.

The distinctive celebration has developed from the Aztecs and includes among other things; ofrendas (offerings), altares de muertos (altars of the dead), and calaveras de azúcar (sugar skulls). This ancient and enduring ritual happens when the living commune with the dead – a mystical night when the veil is lifted between their two realms and they may share a day together.
