Father and son artists

  Art enthusiasts and connoisseurs will have the opportunity to visit "Art Succession and Artistic Legacy of Orduyan Family,"a show featuring Belmont artists Galust Orduyan and son Greg, opening at the Knorr Gallery this month. "My family goes back through four generations of well-known artists. Although our art differs by style and media, it is united by a common philosophical approach applied to art creation," said Greg.
  Work of Galust Orduyan is executed in classical mosaic with an unexpected use of installation miethods and iconic objects symbolic of pop culture. The viewer will find humor, soft irony and cheerftulness.

  Gregory Orduyan exhibits the inspiration he has found in his new Bay Area roots in a style reminiscent of Cezanne, but with his own individual use of color and light. His paintings are lyrical depictions of seaside cliffs, houses nestled in greenery, rooftops, boats and wharves.
  Filled with California sunshine and the misty aura of Half Moon Bay, Greg's works are stripped of non-essentials, painted with thick brush strokes illustrating the essence
of the subject matter that transcends the local neighborhood. The show continues until Oct. 5. There is a reception for the public on Sept. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m. Knorr Gallery is at 253 B St., San Mateo. Hours are Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. For information, call 344-2001.
