Artist Showcase

RTC Rotating Art Exhibit

Featured Artist: Don McPherson


The Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) is pleased to host a two-month exhibit featuring the watercolor art of Don McPherson. His work can be viewed at the RTC office between the hours of 8:00am and 5:00pm, Monday through Friday through August 29th excluding holidays and weekends. Our office is located at 1523 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz.

Don’s watercolors depict scenes of everyday life and the layering of color gives depth to his paintings.

Mr. McPherson earned his degree in Fine Arts from San Jose State University and upon graduation spent two years in the United States Navy at the Naval Security Station in Washington D.C. as an electronic draftsman. He has worked for the Santa Cruz Sentinel in the Display Advertising Department as an artist and salesperson, with the Miss California Pageant as Production and Art Director, and he was co-owner of Sentinel Printers.


Don continued his education in art taking refresher courses at Cabrillo College, working with local watercolorists and attending workshops.
