Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Los Angeles, CA
June 10 – July 1, 2018

The California Art Club’s signature exhibition of contemporary-traditional fine art spotlights more than 300 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 in this un-themed exhibition seek to innovate with modern messages that address societal issues from diversity to the environment.

In presenting the 107th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition at the Natural History Museum (NHM), the California Art Club returns to the first museum to ever present this display. Among the artists who exhibited in the early Gold Medal Exhibitions at NHM were Franz Bischoff, Merrell Gage, Guy Rose, William Wendt and Julia Bracken Wendt, whose Three Muses statue continues to grace the museum’s historic rotunda.

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