No More in a Moment, 24" x 24", Oil on canvas mounted on panel, © Eric Merrell
This painting will be part of a three-week long exhibition and auction, Art Auction 13: Nothing But Blue Skies, at the Long Beach Museum of Art, on view from September 4-19. The exhibition precedes the auction, which takes place on the 20th, proceeds going to benefit the museum. Some of the other artists I admire in the exhibition: John Budicin, F. Scott Hess (one of my teachers at Art Center), Tom Redfield and Michael Situ.
Always glad to support our local museums, and the Long Beach Museum of Art is situated in a great historic building right on the coast.
