San Diego, CA — St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC) will present Nature’s Light & Form at Sophie’s Kensington Gallery, located at 4186 Adams Avenue, San Diego, CA 92116. The show will feature paintings by San Diego artist, Adrian Stewart, as well as artwork from two of Sophie’s artists, Devon Jenson and Brant Simpson. The show is on display from March 1-30, 2019. A free public reception will be held at Sophie’s Kensington Gallery on Friday, March 1, 2019, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Adrian Stewart’s latest paintings capture the brilliance and subtlety of light in nature. His atmospheric, evocative studies in light and form draw inspiration from the bright sunlit beaches of Southern California to the sacred river Ganges in India flooded in the shimmering light of dusk.
Sophie’s artists, Devon Jenson and Brant Simpson, are also featured in the March show. Devon is an abstract expressionist painter whose complex images are heavy with color. Brant Simpson spends his time at the studio drawing fans, stereos, heaters, televisions, and other electrical equipment, with his recent experimentation with painting included in this show.

About St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center …St. Madeleine Sophie’s Center (SMSC), a nonprofit organization in El Cajon, CA, educates and empowers individuals with developmental disabilities to realize their full potential. Founded in 1966 by the Society of the Sacred Heart, the Center first focused on pre-school children with developmental disabilities. When public schools began to assume that role in the early 1970s, SMSC shifted its focus to adults with developmental disabilities. Today, SMSC provides work training and social experiences that encourage 400+ students to become well-rounded, contributing members of the greater community. The Center also strives to educate the community about the realities of developmental disabilities, such as Down syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy. It employs over 120 staff members and is served by more than 150 dedicated volunteers. A fleet of some 45 paratransit vans and buses transports students between home, campus, and work sites, five days a week. For more information, visit www.stmsc.org.
