After over 80 years, the California Art Club's Annual Gold Medal Exhibition returns to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles in Exposition Park. The Gala Reception is Saturday, June 9 and opens to the public the following day. The exhibition is on view at the museum June 10 - July 1, 2018.
I have two pieces in the exhibition: a large painting of Thousand Palms Preserve seen later in the day, the towering palms bathed in warm ambient light. This native fan palm oasis is situated on the San Andreas fault line near Palm Springs.
The second piece is a smaller painting of old yucca stalks in the San Gabriel Mountains, the colors of the stalks faded from age and sunlight.
