SCAA present tandem show

The Southern California Artists Assn. will host a reception and exhibition of new work by California artists Katheryn Holt and Fredric Hope titled "Water's Edge" from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at The SoCal Artists Gallery, 3251 Laguna Canyon Road, Studio F3.

The collection of more than 40 mixed media and oil paintings will also be open to the public from noon to 6 p.m. Sunday.

Holt and Hope share a common origin, both having grown up in the Santa Monica Bay area in the beach towns of Manhattan and Hermosa Beach.

They have also followed a similar career track, attending the esteemed Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles in the 1970's and working for a number of subsequent years in the illustration and entertainment design fields.

In recent years they have each transitioned from commercial art to devote their efforts full time to fine art.

The exhibition marks the 41st anniversary of the artists' first tandem show, hosted by their high school art department upon their graduation in 1969.

The exhibition will be available for viewing, by appointment only, until June 27.
