On Location In Malibu

The weather was outstanding yesterday, great for a drive to the coast to see paintings by members of the California Art Club. The clouds were those kind that are puffy and separated from each other like a mosaic of stepping stones across the sky.

There were over 50 well chosen, recent landscape paintings in this exhibition. Among them work by Dennis Doheny, Douglas Ball, Cathey Cadieux, David Gallup, Gerald Brommer, Steve Mirich, Frank Serrano, and Dan Pinkham.

All of this is at The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University in Malibu through September 3rd.

Hi rgmb,

Thanks!

I'm sure you know of Frederick Wight. Your work feels kindred.

Your work has a sensual, spiritual pull that attracts me.

Thank you Finnegan.

I do know of Frederick Wight and thanks for the link!

I think there is something about the California landscape that can bring certain elements to the surface for an artist. Maybe it's the constant access to Nature.

These were neat. Doheny's were so realistic I thought they were photographs! I liked Gallup's more though because they seemed to have more emotion -the subjects were more sentimental.

Hi sirbarrett,

I think I know what you mean, nice observation.
