FREQUENCY exhibit:

A new art show at the debut of Santa Cruz Art Expressions in the historic Rose building (above Lulu Carpenter) features the work of local abstract artist Kelli C. Foss.

Kelli C Foss is known for her vibrant use of color and her unique style of abstract art. Her work has been featured in many Bay Area exhibitions and she is excited to bring her latest collection to Santa Cruz Art Expressions.
Kelli holds degrees in both psychology and art from San Jose State and has held positions as an elementary school art teacher. Friends and family will tell you she has always been creating in one form or another her whole life. This latest series started in earnest though in the darkest days of the pandemic, “Everyone thinks that hate is the opposite of love but it’s actually fear. I could feel this very visceral fear radiating from everyone I encountered whenever we went out for necessities during the pandemic . I just woke up one day and felt this energy move through me and I knew what I had to to do! I spent hours making paper ‘love transmitter’ hearts and gratitude signs to pass out all over our neighborhood. We were all in this thing together. I wanted people to know they weren’t alone. That we are all connected.” Now that the pandemic threat has subsided we are really ready to be together again and that feels like a celebration! That joy is reflected in the color and movement of her work. This exhibit is in perfect timing with the opening of Santa Cruz Art Expressions, whose mission is to support artists of all types in the Santa Cruz area. We wish to hold hands with artists and galleries in our community and make Santa Cruz an art destination.

The show features a variety of abstract works. Each piece is a unique exploration of color and texture.

Experience the work of a talented local artist and to explore the world of abstract art.
