The founding members of San Diego Art Salon — Pat Kelly, True Ryndes and Robert Treat — will present a special collection of works in “Still,” an exhibition opening with a public reception, 2-4 p.m. Sunday, June 21 at La Jolla Library Art Gallery, 7555 Draper Ave.

“Still” will be on view June 18 through September 30 during regular library hours of operation.

In conceptualizing the show, Treat, Kelly and Ryndes commented on the stillness that falls around them during the painting process. This is not only a function of working solo, but occurs when a visual balance in a piece is imminent or has been achieved.

Although their styles are different, their strong compositions and brushwork inject elements of time and movement, causing quiet narratives to form. It is this dynamic calm that binds the works in this exhibit together, according to the art event committee.

The San Diego Art Salon is a group whose members meet quarterly to discuss new work and explore artistic viewpoints. Fluent in a variety of techniques, the artists find common ground in their familiarity with the history of painting.
