SANTA PAULA, CA – The Santa Paula Art Museum’s fall exhibition schedule includes three original art shows featuring over 100 unique artists, and two of the exhibits are already on view! The exhibits can be enjoyed in person at the Museum, as well as online at www.santapaulaartmuseum.org.
The Museum’s newest exhibit, “Work From Home,” is on view now through January 9, 2022. The show features art created at home during the COVID pandemic by 50 distinct California artists. Delightfully diverse in media and genres, “Work From Home” illustrates how making art helped many artists through the darkest days of the pandemic and 2020.
In “Vistas, Varmints and Vagabonds: The PAC6 Paints the Wild West,” the PAC6 Painters explore the American west, painting its classic scenery, colorful characters, historic happenings, and all things that make it a uniquely special time and place in history. The PAC6 Painters is a group of six artists and friends who are dedicated to painting the beauty and grandeur of the American landscape; they are Linda Brown, Marian Fortunati, Nita Harper, Debra Holladay, Laura Wambsgans and Sharon Weaver. “Vistas, Varmints and Vagabonds” is on view now through November 7, 2021.
The ever-popular, annual group show “Art About Agriculture” will return to the Santa Paula Art Museum from November 13, 2021, to March 6, 2022. The exhibit, now in its thirteenth iteration, is presented annually by the Ag Art Alliance (led by painter Gail Pidduck and photographer John Nichols) to promote awareness of agriculture through art. The exhibition will feature over 50 artists working in all media who explore issues ranging from workers to water, from machinery to fields, to the food that goes on our plates.
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, art classes for children and adults, creative community events, a well-curated gift shop, and more.
