The two exhibitions have provided patrons with a wide array of California art from the early nineteenth century to the present time. The works of art range from traditional California impressionist paintings to images of cartoon-like figures commenting on today's society. The exhibitions offered something for everyone - no matter one's artistic preferences, there was certainly a piece that each patron could really enjoy.
A Conversation with Jeremy Fish (January 17 at 1:00 p.m.) is the final programmed event that will take place before the exhibitions close. Attendees of this event will be able to hear firsthand from the artist about his first museum exhibition. Jeremy is a fun guy with interesting and creative ideas. This event is sure to be engaging and thought provoking.
I'm a little sad to see the exhibitions close - it seems like opening night was just yesterday - but also excited for the Museum's upcoming events.
Auction 100 is taking place on February 6. This event will feature 100 works of art from 100 California artists, and will offer collectors an opportunity to purchase quality works at competitive prices.
You can preview the exhibition from January 30 to February 5. You may also view the online gallery. All works unsold will be available for purchase on February 7.
Tickets to the event are $125 for Members and $150 for non-members. All proceeds benefit the Museum's education and exhibition programs.
Also coming up is OsCene 2010, which will be on display from February21 - May 16 and will feature 49 artists from Orange County, Long Beach, and San Pedro.
