San Francisco painter Tom Fowler passed away Saturday morning from a sudden and unexpected illness. Fowler’s recent work, a series of colorful, abstract landscapes drawn from memories of long drives between SF and LA, capture in his words: “blurry plays of light and shadow, a peripheral vision of land and sky through the mind’s eye, car lights and fading sunlight merging together…” A memorial service is being held at The Melting Point Gallery, 1340 Bryant Street, SF, Sunday, May 15, at 2:00PM.
