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.

For the 113th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition, we will return this summer to the newly expanded Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University in Orange, California, with the exhibition unveiling in August.

In the meantime, the rich tradition of this highly anticipated exhibition can be explored through the exquisite works of paintings and sculptures juried into previous Gold Medal Exhibitions.
