This new and unique art form blends that artist’s animation talents with his original oil paintings, by adding actual motion to his works.

Matson continues to work in the entertainment industry and has been part of such films as: Star Wars EP3, Superman, Chronicles of Narnia, Polar Express and 300 to name a few.

Prior to following his passion for creating fine art, Rod worked as a very successful designer and illustrator for over 20 years, with such clients as The Los Angeles Times, Warner Bros., and Hasbro. Rod has also illustrated many published books and has received over 60 awards for artistic excellence.
Darrell Hill (Local)
Darrell Hill (1941-2013) was a pioneer of Bold-Impressionism. Hill’s rich, vibrant paintings are infused with the energy and spirit of the Islands and are reflected in his beautiful beaches, tropical fruits, flowers and foliage, and images of its native people. Enriched by an Impressionist-inspired observation, Hill shared the beauty he encountered daily. Hill’s luminous use of light, subject and powerful coloring techniques demonstrate remarkable talent and sensitivity. His images can be observed by the heart as well as the eye. Pat Hill, Darrell’s wife will be in attendance on his behalf.
