Face to Face: The Paintings of Mabel Alvarez

The Artist in Her Studio, c. 1945, o/c, 36 x 30 inches

In recent years paintings of Mabel Alvarez (1891-1985), like the work of other California artists, have received new attention. In 1995 they were featured in the ground-breaking exhibition and catalogue Independent Spirits: Women Painters of the American West, 1890-1945, organized by the Autry Museum of Western Heritage. Focusing on her earlier works (1916-1947) and including numerous portraits, this exhibit is an opportunity to encounter the work of an intelligent, thoughtful, and Innovative California artist.

Face to Face. The Paintings of Mabel Alvarez will open in the McCone Gallery at La Mirada November 7, 1998 and will continue through February 1999.
