loftus.jpgThrough April 30 catch the vibrant coastal landscapes on exhibition at the new Davenport Gallery.

Works by Ray Ginghofer, Peter Loftus (shown here), Brian Rounds, Frank Galuszka and Claire Thorson help to create technical expressionist synergy. The rich colorwork of the landscapes played lively counterpoint to large-scale experimental black and white images by photographer Steve Laufer.

After the opening reception last week, we went next door to the Roadhouse (still haunted by the sweet ghost of the New Davenport Cash Store) and enjoyed some excellent salmon.

Curated by bronze sculptor Steve Rudzinski, the current Davenport Gallery show provides a great excuse to cruise up Highway One and savor the mustard in bloom along the north coast.
