Ryder Gallery

The distinguishing note in this assortment of paintings and sculptures by regular gallery artists including Hill, Bloom, Frank, Strick, Beamish, Nakayana and others, was the Coast introduction to Leo Bukzin who recently returned to the United States after spending 17 years in France. The artist brought with him a bright, strenuous palette judiciously employed in blocking out pleasant landscapes and still-lifes that are a bouquet to the eye. The six works on view all demonstrated a capable straight forward style devoid of tricks and theatrics, implying a mature talent at work.
