Suong Yangchareon 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.
Save the date of November 22 for the opening reception of this new exhibition.
