About the Exhibit: Armin Hansen, renowned for his paintings of fisher folk and the sea, sought to capture the raw power and vitality of the Pacific Ocean and those who sailed it. While his style is often described as impressionist, Hansen rejected Impressionism’s gentility by exercising a bolder palette and more rugged strokes that focus on humanity’s relationship with nature. This survey, the largest and most comprehensive ever assembled, includes close to 100 works, including paintings on view to the public for the first time, as well as rare examples of his hand-carved furniture and boat models. After pursuing formal training in painting in San Francisco and Europe, Hansen spent four years in Niewpoort, Belgium, where he painted marines, village views, and fishing scenes, all the while working as a crew-member on North Sea trawlers. This personal experience sparked his lifelong fascination with the sea and its people. Hansen first visited Monterey in 1913 and soon started painting the area’s growing fishing community and fleet. In the West, he became the first to realize the potential beauty of commercial fishing, and he chose the theme in large part because he knew it well from firsthand experience. His vibrant, blustery scenes of the sea communicate broadly the impact of hardship and physical labor and the importance of bravery. (Courtesy of PMCA.org)

Mentor Wednesday with Carolyn Lord

lord.c-china_pattern

Carolyn Lord

China Pattern

Watercolor on paper 15″ x 11″

Cost: $30.00 for Associate Artists

Participants are to bring three paintings to be critiqued.

Call the office at 626.583.9009 to book.

We are pleased to announce that while Carolyn Lord is in town for the Gold Medal Exhibition, she has agreed to do a Mentor Wednesday! This session will take the place of an April Mentor Monday (so if you are eligible to participate in a Mentor Monday in April, you are eligible for this session).


An incredible Northern California watercolorist, Carolyn’s career in watercolor began in college and while traveling – she capitalized on its portability. After traveling throughout the United States, Brasil, Denmark, England, Mexico and French Polynesia Carolyn shifted her focus to her home state. She has been a member of CAC since 1998. For more information about Carolyn and her art, visit her website.

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 March 2015 session, you would not be eligible to sign up again until September 2015.

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.
