This month 34 prominent artists celebrate the city’s artistic legacy in an annual invitational presented by the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association.
On Tuesday, September 19, A Sense of Place Gallery in Fresno, CA, unveils the nearly 100 paintings juried into this year’s Pastels USA, the 31st annual International Open Exhibition of the Pastel Society of the West Coast.
Now in its fourth year, the event returns to the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts to host 34 plein-air artists from around the world for a full week of creativity and fun.
But impressionistic painters themselves are keenly aware of how wide-ranging the style can be, and there’s perhaps no better testament to its diversity than the American Impressionist Society’s National Juried Exhibition.
Now the organization, which is dedicated to expanding representation of women artists across the art world, is responding with an initiative called “25 in 25.” The organization’s goal is to host 25 museum shows over the next 25 years that feature works solely by women artists.
Although many artists have been asked to create art for the building, Van Bergen wanted to start her own project. This culminated in a series of photographs, lithographs, and oil paintings that Van Bergen presents at Christian Daniels Gallery beginning on Friday, October 27.
Evocative new paintings by George Bodine and Hsin-Yao Tseng grace the walls of Waterhouse Gallery this month in a two-man show that gallery co-owner Diane Waterhouse describes as “a true visual feast.”
The show features 125 works ranging widely in subject matter by artists working in 30 states as well as Canada, Malaysia, and China.
David Knowlton and Martha Kellar, the two artists showcased this month at Sorrel Sky Gallery in Santa Fe, highlight that contrast on scales large and small.
The main event happens on Saturday, October 21, along historic Canyon Road, but the festivities commence the day before, when visitors can view artists’ demonstrations as they stroll down the shady half-mile lane lined with galleries, boutiques, and world-class restaurants.
