From Jan. 20 through March 4, there will be a one person exhibit featuring oil paintings by San Diego County painter Larry Groff.

Salton Sea Paintings refers to the region in and around the Salton Sea, the subject matter of Groff's recent paintings.

The opening reception for the exhibit will be Saturday Jan. 20 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Santa Ysabel Art Gallery. The public is invited. There is no admission fee.

In an artist's statement for this exhibit, Groff said, "The Salton Sea is a perfect destination for landscape painting, drawing and photography. The light and atmospheric conditions surrounding the mountains and sea make for a devastatingly beautiful environment. The haunted desolation and its post-apocalyptic ambience is a major draw when looking for visual authenticity and refuge from shopping-mall sameness."
