Arthur Okamura's new paintings at the Claudia Chapline Gallery in Stinson Beach, California, celebrate the environment of Bolinas where he has
lived for the past 47 years. Long known for his oil paintings, he has produced a new series of images of Monarch butterflies, the surrounding hills,
the Bolinas bay, sand, sea, surfers, and even his dog, Charley. These paintings are painted with a new paint, Aquacryl, which allows the artist to
use watercolor techniques on canvas.

Okamura taught painting at the California College of the Arts for 31 years. At his retirement in 1997 he was honored with the title of Professor
Emeritus. The exhibition, Home Ground, is part of CCA's celebration of their 100th anniversary.
