Beloved California IV: Twenty Artists with a Passion for Place

November 16 - December 28, 2019

Now more than ever we are all awakening to the imperative that we pay attention to this land where we live. “Beloved California,” the Holton Studio Gallery’s fourth annual all-gallery show since our move to West Berkeley in 2016, will be an extraordinary celebration of this place we all love. The show features paintings of Northern California by our entire roster of outstanding artists.

The Poetic Landscape

New Paintings

Paul Roehl


Holton Gallery


October 1 through October 31, 2020

~ Online and in-person by appointment ~


A couple of months ago, in the middle of the shut-down, Paul Roehl came by with an astonishing batch of new work and we quickly realized that a show had fallen in our laps. Furthermore, the times being what they are, Paul’s deep love for the California landscape seemed to speak to us more poignantly than ever.

Most of the paintings are framed in our handcrafted hardwood frames, but given the fairly spontaneous nature of the show combined with the fact that it will be largely seen online, some are presented ready-to-frame.

The entire show may be viewed online. The gallery is open by appointment Tuesday through Saturday and we are still limiting visitors to three at a time. (Private appointments are available on request.) If you aren’t local or aren’t comfortable visiting in person, we are happy to send you additional photos or information. Call or email us: 510/450-0350, The paintings are also available

to purchase online.
