CALIFORNIA ART CLUB

The California Art Club is pleased to present the 102nd Annual Gold Medal Juried
Exhibition
at the USC Fisher Museum of Art. The exhibition
includes original paintings and sculptures by 156 contemporary artists, juried into the exhibition by
a panel of 14 art experts. There is no theme to this exhibition,
other than creating works of the highest quality in technical
skills and poetic expression. There are nine Gold Medal awards
that are presented – all
winners are judged by fellow exhibiting artists. In an effort
to document this momentous occasion for future historic reference,
a comprehensive 114-page color catalogue has been produced.
Since the onset of the California Art Club’s annual exhibitions
(the first was held in January 1911 at the Blanchard Gallery in
Los Angeles), the focus has been on producing the highest standards
in fine art, in both painting and sculpting. Those artists who
qualify to submit entries into the Gold Medal Exhibition must
already be designated "Signature," "Artist,"
"Sculptor" and "Mentor Program" members of
the California Art Club, which signifies that they reside in California
and have passed a rigid membership judging procedure. This year,
the Club has also invited several of its "Out-of-State Artist"
members, who are some of the most prestigious artists in the country.

HISTORY

In the early part of the 20th century a small handful of painters settled in
Los Angeles where they formed the Painters Club of Los Angeles
in 1906. Three years later, the Painters Club reorganized itself
into the California Art Club and, for the first time, allowed
women to join as members. They soon became recognized as the most
important art organization in southern California and a dominant
cultural influence in Los Angeles during the city’s formative
years. Today, the California Art Club, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit professional
art organization, is recognized as one of the oldest, largest
and most active professional art organizations in the country.
In 1997 the Club became and affiliate of the California Art Academy
and Museum to help preserve traditional academic training and
to maintain art and documents relating to California’s art history.
The California Art Club is an internationally recognized organization
of leading American artists headquartered in Pasadena, California,
with a current membership of 2,700, of which 51 are "Signature"
members; 461 are "Artist" and "Sculptor" (combined)
members; 24 are Mentor members (highly talented artists under
age 32 selected by special recommendation), and over 2,000 are
"Patron" members. Patron membership is open to anyone
who would like to join in support of contemporary-traditional
art for annual dues of $50. Additional Patron levels with special
benefits are also available.
