California Art Club's 100th Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition

Opening today to the public, this magnificent exhibit runs through till April 24, 2011 at the Pasadena Museum of California Art.

This is a show to see. It was beautifully hung with groupings of analogous themes. The artistry of this show is one you should not miss.

The art displayed at this years exhibit is of the highest caliber, and as many an artist at the opening declared... "The artists really stepped up this year to present a best ever exhibit".

Along with the pleasure of viewing this exceptional body of paintings and sculptures, the California Art Club has just released a deliciously colorful book "California Light, a Century of Landscapes by Jean Stern and Molly Siple. The 264-page book published by Rizzoli International, showcases 300 landscape paintings by both living and deceased artists. I am happy to say, I was included in this beautiful book. Be sure to get a copy, while it is still available. In addition, the "100th Annual catalog to the Gold Medal Exhibition", is available. You can find each of these books at the Pasadena Museum of Art, or online at

You can also preview the paintings of the exhibition at

Seeing them in person is a different experience, as I noticed much of the beautiful use of color in each painting was only visible in person.

Remember my advice "Look only at good art". You will most definitely see it here.
