FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

LOCAL MARINE LIFE ARTIST BRIAN TORCH SELECTED FOR THE CALIFORNIA CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS COLLECTION

 

Lighting has struck twice in the last month for Marine Life Artist Brian Torch. Torch, who was recently inducted into the very prestigious Wyland Ocean Artist Society, was just selected last Friday by the California State Senate to be one of two San Diego Artists, and of only 30 artists in the state, to have their art showcased in the California State Capital for the California Contemporary Artists Collection. Torch was nominated for this honor by State Senator Marty Block.
A special painting of a playful seal that Brian has named ‘Wendell’ has been created for this exhibit. ‘Wendell’ will be on display starting Friday May 17th 2013 for the next 18 months until September 2014.

The prestigious Ocean Artist Society (OAS) members are considered to be the world’s top aquatic photographers, filmmakers, painters, and sculptors. Founded in 2003, the Ocean Artist Society has had over 20,000 artists submit their work for consideration for admission to the Society and just over 200 members have been inducted to date.

By showcasing their talents, this collective group of artists, is devoted to inspiring a passion of the undersea world to a larger audience as means to foster a sense of responsibility to conserve and protect our planet’s waters and sea life by sharing its beauty with others. More information about the OAS can be found at:  www.oceanartistssociety.org/

Over the years, Brian has become a Master Portrait Artist as well, painting portraits for Mohammed Ali, Don King and many others. Brian’s Marine Life Artwork is currently on display at the Michael Seewald Gallery located in the Del Mar Plaza through late-May. Much of Brian’s art can be viewed on his web site at: www.briantorchart.com.

Torch is a former Vice President of the Allied Artist Association of San Diego.  

A scalable jpeg of ‘Wendell” has been attached to this copy. ‘Wendell’ will be shipped to Sacramento Wednesday May 15th, 2013 at 3:00 PM. (More images for Brian’s Marine Life can be found at: http://briantorchart.com/MarineLife)
