Points of View: Mary Lou Correia and Paul Kratter

Points of View: Contemporary Landscapes by Mary Lou Correia and Paul Kratter (closes Sept. 22)

Two of the East Bay’s most vibrant contemporary plein air painters, Mary Lou Correia and Moraga’s Paul Kratter, began their academic training and successful careers in commercial art.  From a controlled indoor work environment, they now are subject to the whims of nature.  To capture a moment in time, they haul painting equipment on foot, and even on horseback, searching for dramatic vistas, racing against fading light.
