California Art Club Opening

Our reception this past Saturday evening for our new show “Treasures From the Bay Area: New Paintings by the California Art Club” drew a big and enthusiastic crowd. We feel very honored and privileged to be hosting this show, and everyone, from the organizers to the judges to the hanging crew worked hard to make it happen. I want to thank the historic California Art Club, and especially CAC SF Bay Area chapter co-chairs Ellen Howard and Paul Kratter, as well as CAC Exhibitions Manager Addy Stupin (who drove up from Pasadena for the event), and of course our own Jessie Dunn-Gilbert, with indispensable help from Sam Edie.

But most of all, we celebrate these tremendous painters. I don’t know how the judges decided, but well-earned awards went to Nancy Crookston, Michael Reardon, Randall Sexton, and Linda Sutton. View the show’s page here… Better yet, come see it in person! It’s up through April 4.
