  • Rendering female models and celebrities on large-scale canvases and with quick, expressive brushstrokes, painter Katherine Bernhardt examines representations of beauty in mainstream media and fashion photography. She paints her subjects with severe, exaggerated features and emaciated limbs that sometimes morph into abstraction, recalling the works of Pablo Picasso. “Some people ask if I hate the models I paint,” she says. “I say no, I don't hate them.

Darren Waterston ('88)'s vast canvases combine pure atmosphere with bits of flora and fauna and chinoiserie silhouettes. His work is based on a deep understanding of the history of paint and the relationship between science, alchemy and the artistic process. A California native who lives in New York,Waterston admits that if he'd been slightly less interested in art, he could easily have become a naturalist or scientist.

He has had one-person exhibitions at the Fresno Museum of Art; Frist Center for Contemporary Art, Nashville; and Bellevue Museum, Washington. He was awarded the Richard Diebenkorn teaching fellowship, and St. Ann's press has published a monograph on his work. He is included in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Oakland Museum of Art; Orange County Museum of Art;
Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, Portland Art Museum, OR, Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; and many other corporate and private collections.
