Santa Paula Art Museum Announces Summer/Fall Exhibition Lineup

SANTA PAULA, CA – With eyes toward reopening in the coming weeks, the Santa Paula Art Museum has four stellar exhibitions lined up for the summer and fall months, which will showcase artists and locales that stretch the length of the California coast. All of the exhibits will be available to view online at www.santapaulaartmuseum.org during their respective run dates, as well as open to the public when allowed by local public health directives.

“Erin Hanson: Colors of California” will mark Hanson’s most comprehensive collection of California’s multitudinous landscapes. Combining the emotional resonance of the 19th century Impressionists with the lavish color palette of Expressionism, Erin Hanson’s unique style of oil painting has come to be known as “Open Impressionism.” Hanson’s exhibit at the Santa Paula Art Museum will include an expansive collection of landscapes inspired by Ventura County, Santa Barbara, Paso Robles, Monterey County, Mendocino, and other scenic locales. The exhibit will be on view May 1, 2021 to July 25, 2021. Visit Erin’s website at www.erinhanson.com.

“Making Waves,” a solo exhibition by Northern California painter Michelle Jung, is eight years in the making. Jung, who prefers to work in series, has a particular passion for the sea and draws upon its energy, power and restorative qualities. From June 5, 2021 to September 12, 2021, viewers will be invited to explore the sights and sounds of the Pacific in this large-scale, immersive presentation of seascape oil paintings. Visit Michelle’s website at www.michellejungstudio.com.

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” will be on view July 31, 2021 to 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 to promote awareness of agriculture through art. The exhibition features 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.
