Sometimes you just want to see or own a landscape picture that is beautiful, calming, contemplative and reassuring. Sidney Wildesmith is your man. He absolute love of the country is apparent and the subtle touch he brings to each of these works assures that they will be long treasured. They are beautifully presented a L Street Gallery which Kay Colvin has managed to keep alive, even with the changes all around her in downtown SD. 

And Sidney offers us another treat in this show for those who might be more scientific minded. In the one night only display, we put on 3-d glasses and were treated to an array of shapes and colors that danced in front of our eyes. I only wish that a whole classroom of students had been there to see these fun creations. Wildesmith is an excellent teacher and I would not be surprised if Transdimensional art became a workshop in the future. No illustrations here, until our computers can catch up!
