Timon Sloane’s solo art exhibition “Breaking Skies“ is on display through September at Los Altos Hills Town Hall, 26379 W. Fremont Road.
An artist’s reception featuring live music, refreshments and wine is scheduled 2-5 p.m. Sunday at town hall.
The exhibition showcases a new body of work that explores the line between the impressionist and the realistic. “Blue Skies” prominently features skyscapes, and Sloane said he breaks the norms and the subject down to explore what is possible in the process of trying to capture the energy and experience of “beautiful moments.”
Known for his luminous landscape paintings that glow as if lit from within, Sloane’s journey to professional artist is as unique as his interpretation of the California landscape. His career didn’t start in art. He had his hand in the formative development of the internet, then after a series of successful endeavors, he left high-tech to pursue his passion for painting.
Sloane was raised in a community of internationally known artists, painted as a child and studied fine art in college in parallel with his degree in computer science. At 43, Sloane switched careers to elevate art to a dominant role in his life.
Now, with more than 10 years as a professional artist, Sloane’s paintings are exhibited worldwide through a following of collectors in the United States, Europe and the Pacific Rim. He has received numerous awards at shows.
“Breaking Skies” also will be open at town hall as part of the annual Silicon Valley Open Studios tour 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Visitors can meet the artist, learn more about his work and ask questions about his technique. Admission is free.
