For the Love of Art: Exclusive Collections Gallery Presents the Romantic Art of Steven Quartly this Valentine’s Day – February 14th!

San Diego’s finest art gallery opens new exhibit of Quartly’s series of original paintings, featuring some of the most romantic scenes across Europe

SAN DIEGO – (January 28, 2009) – Exclusive Collections Gallery (EC Gallery), San Diego’s finest art gallery, will launch a new exhibit at its Fashion Valley Mall location this Valentine’s Day (February 14, 2009), featuring the romantic paintings of Steven Quartly.

From his studio in Southern California, Quartly creates impressionistic oils on canvas, specializing in seascapes and cityscapes. “Quartly’s artwork captures his view of the world from some of the most beautiful and romantic settings in the world,” said James Thorn, owner of EC Gallery. “The Valentine’s Day season is no better time than to showcase his vibrancy in painting beautiful European city scenes, Mediterranean seascapes and warm California Landscapes. We’re excited to share his talents with San Diegans to enjoy.”

Quartly began oil painting at age 13, demonstrating a love of life, nature, color and form and he brings an overall philosophy is faith in God and a desire to express the beauty in life. His energy and devotion to each painting is what makes him unique as his design in composition and color is both meaningful and skilled. The loose and whimsical brush strokes and pallet knife work bring passion and emotion.
