 R. Blitzer Gallery in Santa Cruz is hosting a "Special Evening with Sam Farr," featuring an artistic quartet of Stefani Esta, Congressman Sam Farr, Kenneth Parker and Tracy Valleau on Thursday, April 24.

The event runs from 5 p.m to 7 p.m. at the gallery at 2801 Mission St.

Stefani Esta is a contemporary visual artist who creates 3 dimensional and wall sculptures from steel, copper brass, stone and mixed media.  Her interplay with stone and metal reveal the light and energy that lie within the materials she uses.

With camera in hand, Congressman Sam Farr captures more than an image; he captures the essence and spirit of the person and place.  His photographs, displayed publicly for the first time, offer a glimpse into his larger world, and through them he shares with us a piece of himself.

Kenneth Parker is a large format landscape colorist working principally in remote pristine wilderness areas throughout the world.  He is currently completing a compelling new portfolio Big Sur/Gentle Fury with intimate compositions of the rugged granitic outcrops, tide pools and powerful wave crashes along this magnificent shore.

Tracy Valleau has been shooting fine art photography for more than 55 years and is in the collection at the Crocker Museum.  He is past instructor of photography in the graduate school at Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
