New California Art Club Show

See more of my arroyo seco paintings here.

Yesterday I got official notification that these two paintings have been accepted into a special exhibition of the California Art Club featuring paintings of the Arroyo Seco area of Pasadena. These paintings are of the northernmost part of the Arroyo, near JPL and Devils Gate Dam, on the border of La Canada Flintridge, my home town.

The show will be hung in the Pasadena Public Library and will open Friday night, March 14 (this Friday) and continue through March 30.
Reception is from 6 to 10 pm and artists will be present to chat with. The show is part of Pasadena’s bi-annual ArtNight – a great event in which all of Pasadena’s many museums and concert venues are open, free, for the evening. Shuttle buses take art lovers around to all the locations so you don’t have to keep driving and parking. More information about ArtNight can be found here.

So, if you’re in LA or especially if you live near Pasadena, you should really get out and enjoy this special evening of art, music and more. And if you get by the Pasadena Library, stop by and say hi.

Earlier that same evening, I’ll be at the Chevy Chase Country Club for the opening of another show featuring paintings of the club, canyon and surrounds. More details about that (and pictures) in a day or two.

Now you know why I’ve been saying I’ve been crazy busy for the past month or so!

    I can certainly see why they were selected! Both are absolutely beautiful. There is such a lovely soft quality to the light in both of them — I know the show will go well for you!

    These are just beautiful! I love the reflection on the water on the top one but both of them look like you could just step into the scene. Some how they seem sharper and richer than watercolor, maybe it’s just these specific paintings…
