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.
