• 16th Annual California Landscape Exhibition and Reception

    The John Natsoulas Gallery will host the 16th Annual California Landscape from July 6th – August 26, 2017.

    Exhibition with an opening reception to be held at the gallery on Saturday, July 22nd at 7pm.

    California’s natural beauty and diverse landscape has been giving
    artists a source of inspiration in the genre of landscape painting since Albert Bierstadt and his 19th century depictions of Yosemite. Bierstadt’s practice of capturing the exceptional, ethereal light of
    California continues in contemporary landscapes as artists today explore a new sublimity present in the 21st century. Featuring scenes of fertile valleys, sparkling beaches, dense forests, and seemingly boundless deserts, Californian landscapes remain the root of poetic allure for artists today. Many such artists will be displaying the products of this inspiration and influence again this year in the 15th Annual California Landscape Exhibition.

    The rocky beaches, arid deserts, and lush agricultural land are just a few of California’s multitude of complex and consistently developing eco-systems, providing endless possibilities for unique works of art. Contemporary artists such as Pat Mahony, Marti Walker, Philippe
    Gandiol, Julie Smiley and Boyd Gavin have taken the multifaceted nature of California and brought new ways of viewing landscapes to the John Natsoulas Gallery. The exhibition displays original
    representations of scenic vistas and cityscapes and offers visitors the opportunity to view the familiar in new and exciting ways.

    There has never been a single prevailing Californian aesthetic, but it is the consistent reference to nature that seems to assert itself as our state’s ubiquitous influence within the broader artistic community. Join us at the John Natsoulas Gallery to witness and experience California’s limitless beauty and the distinct role it plays in the world of California art.
