About the gallery:
The R. Blitzer Gallery is the consummate art gallery located on the west side of Santa Cruz, California in a renovated warehouse space that for years made Wrigley Gum.
Next to the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, Natural Bridges State Park and the U C Santa Cruz marine science campus, the gallery is the ideal location to attract art lovers from the local community as well as the San Franisco Bay , Silicon Valley and Monterey Peninsula.
The Gallery, with 19 foot ceilings and natural light, permanently features the bronze sculpture and paintings of owner Robert Blitzer. Themed shows with visiting artists are scheduled on a regular basis and the immense space is ideal for art receptions, theater groups, poetry readings and other special events.
Robert’s metal work is direct welded brass, copper, steel and found metals. Most of the works feature natural stones, crystals and semi-precious stones , reflecting the artist’s love of natural and refractive materials Figurative forms are mostly dramatic in posture, expressing movement. Roberts Mask-like 3-D and wall sculpture faces seemingly reach back to a mystic era, when history was born.
