SANTA PAULA, CA – You’re invited to the premiere of the Santa Paula Art Museum’s newest exhibition entitled “Face of California” on Saturday, May 18, 2019, from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. The group exhibit will feature works of art by 33 artists that seek to capture the “face” of California, depicted in mediums as diverse as the state they endeavor to represent. Admission to the premiere party is $10.00 for members of the Museum and $15.00 for non-members. All of the artworks in the exhibition will be available for purchase.

In giving a face to California, the featured artists have created a vast array of images that evoke California’s character – its places, people, ideas, and stories. Exhibit viewers will see everything from San Buenaventura’s historic neon sign painted in oils, to a uniquely stylized view of LAX. There will be pastel drawings of succulents, Santa Cruz Island, and the Sierra Nevada alongside photographic portraits of Thomas Fire survivors, suburban Santa Clarita, and surfers waiting to catch the next wave. It will be a show equally and as wonderfully varied as the California landscape.

“Face of California” will feature art by Jayne Behman, Betsy Bland, John Brown, Shannon Celia, Raymond Cuevas, Duane Dammeyer, Ted Dayton, Belinda Del Pesco, Michael Kenneth Depue, Mardilan Lee Georgio, Raymond Harris, Gail Hercher, Eul Hurley, Margaret Hyde, Kathy Ikerd, Pamela Ingwers, Joseph Jasik-Drdol, Wana Klasen, Judy Klement, Andrew Laenen, Didi Martin, Jose Galvan Martinez, Yolande McAlevey, Roxie Ray, John Robertson, Viktoria Romanova, Pam Strautman, Sparkle Taylor, Jane Thorpe, Sharon Weaver, Elizabeth White, Michael Wood, and Chris Zambon. The exhibition will be on view through September 15, 2019.

In addition to “Face of California,” the Museum will also debut its “Celebrating Teaching Artists” exhibit on May 18. The eclectic display will shine a well-deserved spotlight on the Museum’s accomplished teaching artists – those individuals who share their creative talents and knowledge with students through classes at the Museum’s new Cole Creativity Center. The exhibit will feature teaching artists Karen Scott Browdy, Jodi Bogart, Ray Harris, Gail Hercher, Mary-Gail King, Wana Klasen, Lala Konrath, Kasia Lisowska, Lisa Mahony, Marianne McGrath, Anita McLaughlin, and Lynne Okun. 

The Santa Paula Art Museum occupies two historic buildings located at 117 N 10th Street and 123 N 10th Street in downtown Santa Paula. The Museum features rotating exhibitions of vintage and contemporary art, creative classes for children and adults, family-friendly events, live musical performances, a gift shop, and more.
