Contemporary artists featured in Ramona

Contemporary artists Kathleen Bergen and Raziah Roushan will be featured in the Discovery Room at the Old Ramona Hotel Gallery in July and August.

Featured in other parts of the gallery throughout the summer will be a range of artwork by gallery members.

A reception for all of the artists is scheduled on Saturday, July 9, from 3 to 5 p.m. The reception is an opportunity for the public to talk with the artists as well as view their work. Refreshments will be served.

Roushan’s art includes a variety of symbolism, visual genre collage and techniques. She develops illuminated figurative paintings and travels around the world teaching and mentoring artists.

Bergen’s work has been in the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. She is a mixed-media artist who uses oil, digital art and collage.

“Two contemporary artists in one room — wow,” said Loretta Alfonsi, a founding member of the gallery. “It promises to be an exciting show. Don’t miss it.”
