We proudly present the grand opening of Oak Gallery, a photographic boutique, located in the Village of Carlsbad bordering The Barrio. The event marks a dream come true for photographic artist and gallery owner Brandy Sebastian. Oak Gallery is nestled within a shared space with mother and owner Penny Kachuck of the Glass and Mirror Shoppe. With the dedicated help and guidance of Brandy’s parents Penny Kachuck and Gary Sebastian as well as her husband David Garcia her dream came to fruition with its soft opening on December 12th, 2021. Brandy’s vision for this unique space is to share with her community that photography can be more than a straight image. That it can be reimagined utilizing past and present photographic techniques and alternative ways of presenting imagery in both two and three-dimensional fine art works. The space is meant to represent home, a place of comfort, sanctuary, and expression with the colors and design choices to closely resemble Brandy’s own home. There is a unique camera collection that graces the top shelves of the gallery from the 1920’s to the 1990’s. The collection is on loan by best-friend and business partner of Sebastian & McConnell Bijouterie, creators of renaissance themed accessories, Jade McConnell.
Current featured fine art photographers are Brandy Sebastian, Barbara Beck, Will Gibson, Kelly Clark, and Todd Bradley. Brandy’s work is eclectic and primarily conceptual, heavily influenced by her life experiences and spiritual truth as well as an alternative process coinsurer and maker creating thoughtful stories. Barbara Beck is a landscape photographer that also experiments with alternative processes in photography, specifically the wet and dry cyanotype photographic process creating beautiful romantic pieces. Will Gibson investigates the gamut of analogue and digital photography with technical skills in sharpness of detail and playful in-camera blurred scenes his work shouldn’t be missed. Where Kelly Clark is a versatile photographer who photographs dynamic landscapes and documentary work, she also uses nature to create mandalas as well as lovely alternative process one-of-a-kind prints. Todd Bradley composes playful miniature scenes then captures them as well as stunning landscapes and abstract textures.
