This Thursday, December 21, GUNWHALE is anxious to present the work of local photographer John Lucarelli.  John is is a self taught photographer whose work revolves around his life at the ocean.  His impressionistic imagery - saturated with color, symmetric in composition, and stirred by movement - is rapidly identifiable as his own.  Though based in Newport Beach, California, John has an immense passion for travel and scours the globe in search of remote adventures. The series, as you can see below, includes some abstract aerial shots, ethereal aquatic closeups and vast coastal landscapes.

The show opens at 6pm this Thursday 12/21 at the Gunwhale Ales taproom in Costa Mesa. John has a great selection of new work and has teamed up with Best Framing to show off the series, from matted prints to limited edition frames. Come meet the artist, as his work may be best enjoyed with our "coastal ales".

Hope to see you all there.  Gift idea for Christmas folks!
