Gaviota Springtime – California Art Club Gold Medal Show – California Landscape Oil Painting by Karen Winters

“Gaviota Springtime”
11 x 14 oil on plein air panel
Central Coast California


This painting is now in a private collection, but you can see more of my California Central Coast paintings here

Saturday is the opening night for the Centennial of the California Art club’s Gold Medal Show. I’m very happy to have my painting, “Gaviota Springtime,” included in this historic exhibition at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. The early members of the California Art Club include such legendary painters as William Wendt, Edgar Payne, Benjamin Brown, Franz Bishoff and many other early California impressionists. The CAC commitment to fine representational painting continues now into its second century, and I am honored to be a part of that tradition.

View all of the paintings in the California Art Club 100th Gold Medal Show.

The Gold Medal show will be on display until April 24, and the museum is closed Monday and Tuesday, weekdays.
