A Journey Along the California Coast: A California Art Club Exhibition

September 12 - January 14, 1PM
California Art Club Gallery at The Old Mill: San Marino

Event Overview

The California Art Club highlights one of the defining characteristics of the Golden State – its awe-inspiring shoreline – with the exhibition A Journey Along the California Coast, on view at the California Art Club Gallery at The Old Mill from September 12 through January 14 of next year.

The exhibition will feature classic beach imagery along the state’s famed coastline and iconic Pacific Coast Highway. The more than 40 paintings to be showcased include not only pristine vistas of unspoiled beaches and dramatic seaside cliffs, from China Cove and La Jolla to Big Sur and the North Coast, but also beloved landmarks, such as Hearst Castle and Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey.

A Journey Along the California Coast will coincide with the publication of Painting California: Seascapes and Beach Towns, the second book about the California Art Club from Skira Rizzoli. The 276-page tome features 200 full-color illustrations of evocative seascapes, charming seaside towns, and beach communities from San Diego near the Mexican border to Crescent City at the Oregon border. The book will be available through the California Art Club and fine booksellers in October.

“The California Art Club is delighted to present A Journey Along the California Coast to celebrate the publication of Painting California,” says Cathy Crowser, chief operating officer for the Club. “The lure of the Pacific Ocean has compelled California Art Club artists to paint the Golden State’s coastline and its surrounding beach communities for more than a century, so it is only appropriate that we spotlight works of this popular genre of California art at our gallery at The Old Mill as the new book from Skira Rizzoli is launched,” she adds.

During the exhibition, the California Art Club Gallery at The Old Mill will hold a book signing on Saturday, October 21, with Painting California author Jean Stern, executive director of The Irvine Museum Collection at University of California, Irvine. At the event, which begins at 1:30 p.m., Stern will be joined by Elaine Adams, executive director and CEO of the arts organization, who penned the forward for the book.

The participating artists in the exhibition are juried members of the California Art Club and include Peter Adams, Nanette Biers, Larry Cannon, Lorenzo Chavez, Christopher Cook, David Damm, Rick Delanty, Gil Dellinger, Esther Engelman, Mark Farina, Terri Ford, Andrea Gaye, Lynn Gertenbach, Diana Hecht, Laurie Hendricks, Carolyn Hesse-Low, Debra Holladay, Jeff Horn, David Jenks, Michelle Jung, Chuck Kovacic, Frank Lennartz, Simon Lok, Carolyn Lord, Kim Lordier, Elaine Mathews, Patricia McGeeney, Jim McVicker, Sherrill Miller, Jim Morgan, Lisa Mozzini-McDill, Michael Obermeyer, Tony Peters, April Raber, Gerald Rahm, Pauline Roche, Dan Schultz, Liliana Simanton, Marjorie Taylor and Karen Winters.

All of the paintings are available for acquisition. Gallery hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, except holidays. There is no admission charge. After the opening of the exhibition at the Old Mill, which is located at 1120 Old Mill Road in San Marino, the artwork may be viewed online at californiaartclub.org.
