The California Art Club, La Casita Foundation, and Pasadena Garden Club are excited to be working together again for the fifth time since 2000. The event draws awareness to the history and birthplace of California Impressionism as well as to the importance of preserving
La Casita del Arroyo, built in 1933 by eminent architect Myron Hunt.
La Casita del Arroyo was declared a Pasadena Cultural Heritage Landmark in 1976. For more information on the La Casita Foundation, visit their website here.

Michael Obermeyer,a native of Southern California, received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration at California State University, Long Beach. A twenty year career in illustration included works for Disney Studios, the Anaheim Angels, McDonnell Douglas, Coldwell Banker, and the United States Air Force. Because of his illustration background, he is equally comfortable with the landscape and the figure. Many of his paintings are in the U.S. Air Force Historical Art Collection in the Smithsonian Institute and the Pentagon. Obermeyer recently won the “Collector’s Choice Award” and the Southwest Magazine “Quick Draw” Award at the Laguna Beach Invitational Plein Air Competition as well as the “Best of Show” at the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art, and the Gold Medal at the Carmel Art Festival.

He maintains his studio in Laguna Beach, California. Michael Obermeyer is a Member of the Oil Painters of America, The Society of Illustrators, and a Signature Artist Member of the California Art Club and the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association.

Usually on the first Monday of each month, a CAC Signature Artist Member meets with groups of five Associate Artists to provide insightful and constructive feedback about their work. We hope that this small intimate setting will provide a forum for artists to learn from critiques of each others’ work as well as their own.

Because we want to accommodate as many members as possible, members may only participate in Mentor Mondays once in a six month period. For example, if you take part in the November 2015 session, you would not be eligible to sign up again until May 2016.

Important: Mentor Mondays always fill up very quickly, with a waiting list for each session. If you need to cancel for any reason once you have confirmed your spot, please let us know as soon as possible so we can offer your spot to someone else.

Where: Crocker Museum

216 O Street

Sacramento, CA 95814

Cost: Crocker Members $8.00/Non-members $10.00 (paid to the museum)




Details: Join the Sacramento Chapter for a chance to meet and mingle with fellow members. The group will meet in the Crocker Cafe area at 5:30 p.m. The Cafe has happy hour from 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Thursdays with discounted food and drinks. We will mix with fellow members until 6:30 p.m. when the docent tours will start the tours in groups of about 8. The tour will include the
Armin Hansen exhibit and/or David Ligare exhibit. Museum closes at 9:00 p.m.




Exhibit Details: Although the San Francisco native at times painted lush still lifes, spirited rodeo scenes, and loosely rendered landscapes, his signature subjects were fisherfolk and the sea. Often described as Impressionist, Hansen’s art departed from the calm and colorful beauty that characterized the style, even though he used bold colors and, at times, broken brushstrokes. For the most part, Hansen rejected Impressionism’s gentility to focus on humanity’s interaction and contests with nature. He did so with broad masses of color, dynamic compositions, and the elimination of superfluous detail. At heart a storyteller, he had an ability to create compelling narratives. His stories are told here through 100 works, including oils on canvas, watercolors, and etchings. The exhibition is organized by the Pasadena Museum of California Art in collaboration with the staff of the Crocker Art Museum. For more information, visit Crocker Art Museum’s website.
