FIG Artists Younker and Dunn in Nature: Improved

FIG artists Leah Younker and Jeanne Dunn currently have work in a group of shows titled Nature: Improved, San Diego Artists Interpret Our Landscape, with Bram Dijkstra as lead curator and Alessandra Moctezuma, Mesa College Art Gallery Director, as co-curator.
The main exhibit is at the Oceanside Museum of Art through February 23, and includes Younker's One-Note Song (2011, 24x48", oil on canvas)
and Younker's Looking East (2009, 35x54", oil on canvas).
There are two satellite shows at the University Club in downtown San Diego through April 27 and at the San Diego History Center in Balboa Park through March 3. The University Club is private, but has lectures on Sundays for $15.

Dunn's piece Tangle Tree Series: Wary (58x48", acrylic on paper on panel) is at the San Diego History Center...
and her Tangle Tree Series: Discretion (60x42", oil on canvas) is at the Oceanside Museum of Art.
Younker has a few pieces at the History Center, including Lucky Lady (2013, 24x48", oil on canvas).

The smaller exhibit at the University Club was a celebration of the fact that the two museums collaborated on the exhibit, and Dunn and Younker were chosen from that larger group for the smaller show, which is quite an honor.

Other curators were SDHC Director Charlotte Cagan, OMA Director Daniel Foster, former Director of SDMA and now Director of the Art Gallery at USD Derek Cartwright.
