This exhibition honors each artist’s legacy at Cabrillo, spotlights their personal artistic practice and celebrates the freedom from previous constraints on creative time that is one of the great joys of retirement. An eclectic range of disciplines, materials and approaches are represented: oil painting, drawing, pastels, textiles, art garments, a variety of mixed media and digital, antique process and experimental analog photography.
