Calendar Pick: Bob Marable and Members Exhibition Opening Reception

Bob Marable

Defined by bold, confident lines and bright splashes of color, Bob Marable’s work is full of dynamic expression. Marable is a founding member of OCAF and has been a prolific artist since the 1950s, with last year’s exhibition showcasing his earlier works. His upcoming exhibition, “The Mystic and Mistrial Art of Bob Marable,” shows a different, more expressionist side of his artistic inclinations than these mid-century pieces. Among other notable contributions to OCAF’s artistic mission is the expansive and reflective Yukiko Memorial Garden, initiated by Marable in honor of his late wife. Marble’s art will be on view until 7 p.m., with a live art demonstration at 6 p.m. to display his unique craftsmanship. The OCAF 2024 Members Exhibition is opening the same day, highlighting the diverse and intricate works of the foundation’s own members, from delicate landscapes to strikingly composed photography. Both exhibitions are running through Aug. 2.
