CAM Studio Guest Artist
Antonio Arredondo Juarez was born in Villa Guerrero, Jalisco, Mexico. A graduate of California State University, Channel Islands, he received a Bachelor’s degree in Communication with an emphasis in Business and Nonprofit.
Best known for his series, Cajas de Cartón, the subjects of his work bring otherwise marginalized groups of people into the forefront of social, political and cultural justice. Arredondo pays homage to the campesino, restoring the dignity of these invisible people to the viewer.
Through the medium of photography, Arredondo takes the viewer on a journey of what society has deemed unworthy of equality and respect. He attempts to rectify the injustice and dehumanization placed on the campesino, the unsung hero that despite low wages and poor working conditions, continue picking and packaging the food so many people take for granted.
Arredondo’s stark black and white images frame the perspective for the viewer by allowing him or her to internally explore a spectrum of emotions, providing an opportunity to connect with the subject matter and provide an insight into the harsh reality of life in the fields.
Arredondo’s strives to break down barriers forced on us by society and the media. We fall victim to these external pressures which then separate us socially, culturally, economically and racially, holding us back from our full potential as human beings.
Newest CAM Studio Guest Artist
June 26- October 9, 2016
Following upon fiber artist Trish Limbaugh’s successful Studioship, we are happy to announce that award winning, color pencil artist Phillip Zubiate III of Oxnard is the latest CAM Studio Gallery Guest Artist. During his Studioship from June 26- October 8 visitors can see the artist at work Thursday-Saturday afternoons creating remarkably realistic imagery with purely colored pencils.
Zubiate is already at work designing and installing introductory portions of his exhibit on color pencil techniques to be ready for families to enjoy at the Museum’s Family Day this Saturday June 25th. This exhibit of his art and affordable prints will continue to be expanded throughout the CAM Studio Gallery over the summer and culminate with an open house Exhibit Reception on Friday August 5th from 5:30-7:30pm.
A member of the Color Pencil Society of America, Zubiate’s eyes were opened to the arts, especially comic books, by neighbors of Navajo decent that enjoyed all the arts from painting and music to dancing and writing. At ten he started his first formal training watching 1960’s television art instructor Jon Gnagy’s “Learning to Draw Series”. Continuing to study, in junior high the artist followed the work of Marvel and DC comic artists, in high school he focused on the prints of M.C. Escher, and in college he broadened his scope to include other fine art media, design, and graphic arts. Phillip Zubiate has extensive business experience in the Graphic Design and Advertising industries from Creative Art Director to Web Designer and Tradeshow Coordinator. Over his career he has worked with the US. Navy Seabee Museum, Dux Dental, Eels/Rastovich Design Agency,
Nortel and Micom among others. The Museum is excited and grateful to the artist to be able to share with visitors an insightful experience of art produced through graphite pencil and through color pencil techniques.

CAM Studio Artist Olguin Tapia H. ended his residency on January 11, 2016. Upon his departure he generously donated one of his pallet paintings to the Collection. During his residency, Olguin created a significant body of work including paintings, sculptures and an installation that captures the essence of his everyday memories in his life and the ideology of never forgetting what his grandfather who passed away once told him, “Remember who you are and never forget where you came from.” Thank you Olguin!
"Roadtrip: New and Past Gifts to the Collection referencing trials and joys of summer journeys". The exhibit includes works by Doug Spaulding, Ramon Ramirez, Omar d'Leon, Andrea Yomtob and many more.
