• Old Mill Hosts California Art Club New Exhibit Begins


    Michael Obermeyer Morning Walk, Lacy Park Oil, 10” x 8”

    The exhibition showcases nearly 40 paintings that shine the spotlight on the four-square mile city, which was incorporated on April 12, 1913, as a uniquely residential community with expansive homes set in beautiful garden settings and connected by wide streets and lush parkways.

    Artists associated with the 103-year-old fine arts organization have a long history of painting on location throughout the Golden State in order to capture on canvas beloved sites and pristine natural resources. In preparation for this display, the Club held two “paint-outs” during which artists set up their easels on both public streets and private spaces to paint en plein air (“in the open air”).

    The imagery to be featured in the San Marino exhibition includes the city’s most famed landmark – The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens – as well as Lacy Park and the site of the Club’s galley, The Old Mill, the oldest commercial building in Southern California.

    All of the participating artists in the exhibition are juried members of the California Art Club and include Peter Adams, John Brunnick, Donald W. Crocker, Jose De Juan, Esther Engelman, Bernard Fallon, Andrea Gaye, Lynn Gertenbach, Debra Holladay, Chuck Kovacic, Michael Obermeyer, Rita Pacheco, Rodolfo Rivademar, Junn Roca, Linda Rogers, Liliana Simanton, Michael Situ and Karen Winters.
    After the opening of the exhibition, the artwork may be viewed online at www.californiaartclub.org
