Blue Line Gallery’s current exhibit, Souls, features the work of two northern California artists and is full of vibrant paintings intended to inspire discussion among visitors.

San Francisco-based artist Carlos Loarca paints with searing color and uses animals and human imagery in an exciting way, according to Roseville Arts CEO Julie Hirota.

His work is influenced by Mayan culture in his native Guatemala, although he has lived in the United States for the past 55 years. His pieces reflect the concepts of space, time and abstraction.

Sacramento-based artist Raphael Delgado’s paintings incorporate diverse styles and emotions to convey an image from his memory or imagination.

He strives to create art that is timeless, psychologically complex and visually impactful. Some paintings are bright and energetic, and others are dark and nocturnal.
