This summer, Roger’s Garden in Corona del Mar in Orange County hosts “Surf’s Up!” featuring work by Kevin Short and myself from June 11-July 31, 2016. This venue is one of the most inspired garden/lifestyle retailers on the West coast. Stop in to see the show, then visit the nearby Irvine Museum for their newest (always impressive) exhibition. Parking is free!
Since 2003, Jeff Yeomans’ work has explored urban and rural perspectives, SoCal beach culture and the changing face of contemporary California. In the summer of 2015, the Irvine Museum, Oceanside Museum of Art, Frederick Weisman Museum in Malibu and Huntington Beach Art Center, all featured his paintings.
“I grew up in Southern California in the 60s, and all I wanted to do was surf with my friends and do anything involved with art. Since then, painting, teaching and being near the ocean with my family, is how I spend my time. Although I’m getting older, retirement is not my goal. In painting and teaching, I think I’ve found something better.”
During the last decade, Yeomans has received recognition as a respected regional artist. Among his awards is “Best Urban Landscape” at the California Art Club’s 97th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition (2008) and a commission for the Naval Hospital in San Diego giving recognition to the wounded warriors of our military.
Seven of his paintings are included in “Land of Sunlight” a book of landscape paintings of the San Diego region, and in “California Light: A Century of Landscapes,” published by Rizzoli and the California Art Club.
He is an Artist Member of the California Art Club, a Signature Member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, and he teaches painting at the La Jolla Athenaeum Art & Music Library.
