Art Show
16th Annual California Landscape Exhibition
California’s natural beauty and diverse landscape has been giving artists a source of inspiration in the genre of landscape painting since Albert Bierstadt and his 19th-century depictions of Yosemite. His practice of capturing the exceptional, ethereal light of California continues in contemporary landscapes, as artists today explore a new sublimity present in the 21st century. Featuring scenes of fertile valleys, sparkling beaches, dense forests and seemingly boundless deserts, Californian landscapes remain the root of poetic allure for artists today. Contemporary artists such as Pat Mahony, Marti Walker, Philippe Gandiol, Julie Smiley and Boyd Gavin have taken the multifaceted nature of California and brought new ways of viewing landscapes to the John Natsoulas Gallery. The exhibition displays original representations of scenic vistas and cityscapes and offers visitors the opportunity to view the familiar in new ways. A reception will be held July 22 at 7pm.
