The Photography of Allissa Thompson

The Gallery at The Brooks is delighted to showcase the photographic art of 
Allissa Thompson.

For this exhibit Ms. Thompson will be displaying her photographs of the iconic beach milieu of San Diego County, concentrating the bulk of her work on the eclectic Oceanside. Ms. Thompson's work ranges from the vibrantly enhanced summers day to the moody mist laden waters or early morn. Her lens captures emotions and angles we want to peer around, seascapes we want to inhabit. Each work conjures up a time spent indulged in southern California beach song; crisp, moody, lingering, with a confident beat one wants to repeat.

Allissa Thompson will be our solo artist through November. A reception for Ms Thompson will be held on November 6 , 6-9pm. during First Friday Art Walk

Allissa Thompson was born and raised on a farm in Orange County, New York, but has called Oceanside home for the last five years.  Her creative passion was kindled by a high school photography class many years ago, yet set aside to study psychology and run track at Duke University.  Rediscovering her artistic roots in recent years has reignited an insatiable wanderlust; she trekked the Great Wall of China in 2014 and looks forward to seeing more of the world through her lens.  Most weekends she can be found hiking, chasing sunsets, and searching for new photographic adventures.  She is an award-winning member of Carlsbad Oceanside Art League (COAL) and Oceanside Museum of Art's Artist Alliance.  Allissa loves sharing the stories behind her photos, and is honored that people enjoy her work.
