Free Artist Talk: Suong Yangchareon: "SOMEWHERE IN ORANGE COUNTY"
Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 1pm
The Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University will present a FREE illustrated talk by noted artist Suong Yangchareon at 1 p.m. Saturday, August 26, 2017 in the museum's main gallery. All are invited! He will speak about his paintings of notable places in Orange County and share projected images of his works.
Admission to the museum is also FREE, and there is limited free parking in front of the building. Additional parking is available in the Chapman film school lot – (marked “KS” on map; $2 for 2 hours; $3 for 4 hours at permit machine), and city lot one block east.
Suong Yangchareon, born in Thailand, came to the U.S. in 1974 and now lives in Eagle Rock. He specializes in detailed, almost photorealistic paintings -- mostly of Los Angeles and environs, but also of small towns he discovers in California. His paintings often capture California days at the height of afternoon, when the sun is hot and most people are indoors, so the streets and sidewalks are empty under a blazing blue sky. But there's also an aura of expectancy in his works – a feeling that as the day wears on, people will come out and activity will resume.
Mr. Yangchareon will be happy to answer audience questions.
Six paintings by Mr. Yangchareon are currently on exhibition in the Hilbert Museum. He is represented by the Paul Thiebaud Gallery.
