"In the Garden" (2004, 0024) by Gerrit Greve (60 x 48 inches, acrylic on canvas)
L Street Fine Art features the abstract works of Gerrit Greve. In this body of work the artist describes the figure with the calligraphy of emotional gestures. Through the ambiguity of abstraction, the viewer is able to have a visceral experience without preconceived associations with representational images.
A third-generation Dutch colonial, Greve was born in Indonesia and spent his early childhood in the Netherlands before growing up near Chicago, Illinois. This multicultural exposure during his formative years has shaped both Greve and his art.
Greve’s artwork is held in public and private collections in the U.S. and abroad. His paintings have been featured in publications including Time Magazine and 1001 Paintings You Must See Before You Die.

ANITA LEWIS, THE STRUCTURE OF WATER
Through the Blue
Many things can be understood under the term “abstract art.” What is both different and mesmerizing about the art of Anita Lewis is that it explains depth and texture, offering its own unraveling story to the viewer. Yet, abstract art hardly describes the feel of her work.
Deriving suggestions from nature, Lewis adds elements of gold, silver and copper leaf to add hidden treasures to her work, setting a sort of vein buried deep beneath, suggesting depth of tangibility. Lewis’ technique is a mixture of the masters Pollock, Diebenkorn, Monet, Rothko, and Richter, all blended to become her own.
Dripping, rubbing and dragging paint over the canvas, she sets a mood to the work, never using brushes. Often described as taking the viewer to a reminiscent place, the viewer is taken deep into the painting. (From December 2014 issue, American Art Collector)
Kay Colvin, director and curator of L Street Fine Art Gallery since 2010, demonstrates her commitment to the local arts community by creating opportunities and generating recognition for emerging and mid-career artists of the San Diego area. Throughout her tenure at L Street Fine Art, Colvin has collaborated with numerous nonprofit art organizations in presenting exhibitions featuring artists from San Diego and beyond.
In partnership with Oceanside Museum of Art, Colvin initiated and coordinated “California Dreaming,” the Museum’s inaugural venture into international traveling exhibitions. Featuring the work of local, national and international artists, the exhibition traveled to Italy, Oceanside Museum of Art and finally Riverside Art Museum. She subsequently partnered with OMA in producing “San Diego Dreaming” dual exhibitions at Oceanside Museum of Art and L Street Fine Art Gallery, which featured exclusively the work of artists living and working within San Diego County.
Currently serving on the board of directors of the Encinitas Arts, Culture and Ecology Alliance, Colvin is engaged in development of the Pacific View Academy of Arts in Encinitas, CA. A former commissioner of the arts for the City of Encinitas, she continues to serve on the board of directors of The 101 Artists’ Colony and Arts Alive Foundation.
With a BA degree in fine art and art history and subsequent graduate studies in art and art education, Colvin has been professionally engaged as gallery director, curator, design director, arts columnist, art education curriculum developer and instructor, as well as practicing artist.
