Gold Medal Exhibition


April 9 – 30, 2017

106th Gold Medal Artists (L-R): Nancy Popenoe, Adam Matano, Eric Bowman, Scott W. Prior


The historic California Art Club presents its signature exhibition, spotlighting more than 200 sculpture and paintings of genres ranging from landscapes and seascapes to figures and still lifes. The exhibiting artists include nationally renowned representational artists who have been active in expanding interest in the California Impressionist heritage associated with the organization’s founding in 1909. While the artists employ time-honored fine art techniques, their featured works seek to innovate with modern messages that address societal issues from diversity to the environment.

All works are available for acquisition. If interested in purchasing artwork, please call the California Art Club at 626.583.9009.
