Presented in Collaboration with
Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University
May 16 to June 30, 2020
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 109th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition with the Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University, the California Art Club embarked on an exciting new partnership with this relatively new cultural institution. While our initial plans were to unveil our signature event in Orange County for the very first time, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we presented this much anticipated display on our website with a full slate of online activities and educational programs.
We look forward to presenting the 110th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition at the Hilbert Museum in 2021.
