Scenes of the Pacific

December 5 - March 4, 2001


The California Art Club Gallery, a nonprofit art gallery located at the historic Old Mill in San Marino, presents its latest exhibition, Scenes of the Pacific, from December 5 through March 4, 2001. On view are many interpretations of California's magnificent coastline and the great ocean that California shares with Asia.

Each of the ten featured artists presents a uniquely personal vision of this meeting of land and sea. Artists Anita Hampton and David Jonas, working along California's Central Coast, portray the area's untouched rocky coastline and still waters on quiet mornings. Painters Paula Bacinski and Marcia Burtt capture in oil on canvas the blue Pacific off the Santa Barbara Coast and inviting beaches begging for a stroll. Ruo Li and Calvin Liang record the ever changing yet constant tide, while Ray Roberts and Peter Adams focus on the way bright light from the setting sun plays on dark waters. In particular, artists Stephen Mirich and Eric Merrell depict the coves and cliffs of Pales Verdes, a treasure to preservationists. (left: Ray Roberts, Coastal Rocks, Laguna, oil, 20 x 24 inches)

Despite such diversity of style and perspective, each artist paints with a common passion - the need to preserve the natural beauty of the Pacific and the California coastline.
