108th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition from the California Art Club
490 East Union Street, Pasadena, CA 91101 (Former location of Pasadena Museum of California Art)
The California Art Club’s signature exhibition of contemporary-traditional fine art spotlights more than 300 sculptures and paintings of genres ranging from landscapes and seascapes to figures and still lifes. The exhibiting artists include nationally renowned representational artists who have been active in expanding interest in the California Impressionist heritage associated with the organization’s founding in 1909. While the 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.
March 3 – 29, 2019
In presenting the 108th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition at the location of the former Pasadena Museum of California Art (PMCA), the California Art Club returns to the venue that previously presented eight installments of its signature event – including the historic 100th Annual Gold Medal Exhibition.
