30 original oil and acrylic on canvas works created in the Huntington Library gardens by painter and educator Dennis McGonagle will be on exhibition for the first time in “Landscapes from the Huntington Library” showing from May 19 – August 25, 2014 at Soka University’s Founders Hall Art Gallery 2nd Fl from M-F, 9 am – 5 pm.  Admission is free.  The Opening Reception will be held on Thursday, June 5, from 5:30 – 8 pm.

McGonagle is well-known for his use of color in capturing Southern California landscapes and for a series of captivating murals he has created in Whittier since 1975.  He is a proud member of the Huntington Library Garden Arts Guild and was inspired by the Garden for this series of paintings, explaining that “The Garden is like the surface of another planet, with an endless variety of exotic forms and intense colors.”

McGonagle was born in Los Angeles.  Mentored by James Doolin, he graduated from California State University, Long Beach with an MFA in studio art, focusing on painting, Mexican art history and Spanish.  He earned the Music Center’s Bravo Award for outstanding art educator last year.  His work may be viewed at www.McGonaglestudio.com.
