California Art Club & Merrell Gage

The California Art Club, headquartered in Pasadena, has nine chapter locations up and down the state. In 1909, the Painters’ Club of Los Angeles formally ended, yet some members believed that a need existed still for “artists living in Southern California to meet and share their ideas, and to exhibit together.” In this version of the club […]

Music Makes Magic at the Old Mill

Music Makes Magic at the Old Mill

Built in 1816, it’s been described as the first water-powered grist mill in California, even though apparently the “mechanical marvel” of Franciscan Father José Maria de Zalvidea‘s horizontal, direct impulse water wheel left the subsequent flour damp and the mill only produced for seven years before a “superior” New England-style mill with a vertical waterwheel […]

Plein Air: Home & Abroad

Plein Air: Home & Abroad

Some things are meant to last. Plein air painting may have originated in the 19th century and become a central feature of French Impressionism, but it’s a style that continues to create a powerful and moving reaction from the viewer. On Saturday, July 28th, artist Glen Knowles will be demonstrating landscape painting in the plein […]

Love Never Fails: Edouard and Luvena Vysekal at the PMCA

Edouard and Luvena Vysekal arrived in Los Angeles in 1914. Within a few years, they were fixtures in the LA art scene, regularly exhibiting with the California Art Club and the California Progressive Group. In a fairly conservative artistic climate, they (practically) made the case for modernism, and opened the door to a more experimental […]

That’s the Altadena Town and Country Club to you. The show—“At the Foothills of the San Gabriels” (a nice pairing of name and place)—kicked off September 1st, but the opening reception is this Sunday, from 4 to 6 p.m. The CAC, as regular readers know, is a little more than a hundred years old now, […]

Yesterday was the opening of the 100th Annual California Art Club Gold Medal Juried Exhibition in the Main Gallery of the ever-delightful PMCA—a mouthful of the best the CAC’s artist-members have to offer.

PMCA Opening: California Art Club

PMCA Opening: California Art Club

The PMCA has a lot going for it: good location, a great space and fresh programming. The Ulysses Guide to the Los Angeles River, in the back gallery until July 3rd, is really something. And while the excellent Millard Sheets exhibit is gone, taking its place this Sunday is the 99th Annual California Art Club Gold […]

Christopher Slatoff: Sculpting Life

Christopher Slatoff: Sculpting Life

Christopher Slatoff looks like a sculptor. Standing over six powerful feet tall, with a cherubic yet introspective face framed by a shaggy, graying coif, he’s somewhere between Michelangelo’s David and Moses. Chris, who has a BA in sculpture and once made a living traveling the world’s beaches sculpting sand, is a professor at both Art […]
