Ty Pownall, Gretchen Batcheller

Exhibit Dates: March 10 to April 3, 2015

Opening Reception: March 14, 4 – 6 pm

The Blackboard Gallery at Studio Channel Islands Art Center in Camarillo is pleased to host an exhibition of painting and sculpture by two contemporary artists, Gretchen Batcheller and Ty Pownall, who are faculty members of Pepperdine University, Department of Fine Arts.

Ty Pownall, from Los Angeles, uses his dynamic sculptures to explore the relationship between culture, science and mythology. His works in this exhibition are influenced by the power dynamics seen through the gender roles in creation stories, modernistic architecture and color usage in contemporary art.



Gretchen Batcheller has lived in Los Angeles for the past two years. Her paintings investigate the multifaceted make-up and complex story of the city. She seeks to create a dialog with the viewer by representing it through its endless layers of growth, stagnancy, depression and revival.


On April 1 at 5 pm, the artists invite you to an Artist Talk at the Blackboard Gallery. No admission, free parking.
