To mark the centennial anniversary of the city of San Marino’s founding, the California Art Club presents the exhibition San Marino: CAC Artists Celebrate 100 Years at its gallery at the historic Old Mill.
The exhibition showcases nearly 40 paintings and includes imagery of San Marino's most famed landmark – The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens – as well as Lacy Park and The Old Mill, the oldest commercial building in Southern California.
Artists associated with the 103-year-old fine arts organization have a long history of painting on location throughout the Golden State in order to capture on canvas beloved sites and pristine natural resources. In preparation for this display, the Club held two “paint-outs” during which artists set up their easels on both public streets and private spaces to paint en plein air (“in the open air”).
All of the participating artists in the exhibition are juried members of the California Art Club and include Peter Adams, John Brunnick, Donald W. Crocker, Jose De Juan, Esther Engelman, Bernard Fallon, Andrea Gaye, Lynn Gertenbach, Debra Holladay, Chuck Kovacic, Michael Obermeyer, Rita Pacheco, Rodolfo Rivademar, Junn Roca, Linda Rogers, Liliana Simanton, Michael Situ and Karen Winters.
