The California Art Club presents the exhibition "The California Coast" at its gallery at the historic Old Mill.
The 102-year-old arts organization unveiled this exhibition, which features nearly 50 paintings that spotlight the natural beauty which defines the 840 miles where the Golden State meets the Pacific Ocean, on the heels of the landmark deal approved by the California Coastal Commission to permanently preserve a stretch of Northern California coastline in Santa Cruz County.
Club artists have been active in creating paintings of specific areas of the state in order to call attention to both their awe-inspiring vistas and efforts to preserve and protect these regions. Their paintings have supported preservation efforts of more than 50 different organizations, including the Catalina Island Conservatory, Heal the Bay, and the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy.
The imagery to be showcased in The California Coast ranges from Big Sur and the Isthmus of Catalina Island to the Malibu pier and Laguna Beach.
