Since its 1909 inauguration, the California Art Club has been dedicated to promoting and supporting contemporary-traditional fine art through championing painting and sculpture featuring representational practices. The Annual Gold Medal Exhibition is the most vital platform for demonstrating the best of the realist genre. While participating 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 112th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition with the Bowers Museum, the California Art Club will unveil our signature event with this esteemed institution for the second year in a row.

Exhibition Sponsors

The California Art Club would like to recognize the generosity of its sponsors for the Gold Medal Exhibition. Without their support the success of our signature event would not be possible.
