ART AT BAYSIDE
JORN FOX was born in Southern California and was exposed to art at an early age by his father. He began his formal art studies in high school and later at California State University, Fullerton. As a plein air artist, Jorn has been inspired for decades by the varied terrain of the region and its people. He is also equally confident in his studio painting a live model, still life’s, and from drawing studies and photographs. Working with oils, palette knife and brush, Jorn is able to evoke serenity and stillness, movement and emotion in his works. The wide scope of his paintings includes collections devoted to the beauty of the California coast and the action of its harbors, the rhythm of jazz, abstract and figurative work, nautical series, and as gracing the invitation for this Bayside exhibit, vintage car classics.
Each evening from 4:30 pm to close, join us for cocktails and a savory California small plates menu, in the lounge or at the bar. The new expanded menu boasts an assortment of culinary choices in a lighter style with prices that range from $6.95 to $23.00 per item. It’s the perfect spot to meet after work or after a day at the beach to enjoy a comfortably chic setting and live music.
