DESCRIPTION

24" X 18" original oil landscape painting of Santa Monica beach will be featured in OCCCA's exhibit, Santa Monica, The Art Of Summer, September 4-25. Opening reception is on Sept. 4, 6-10pm at Orange County Center of Contemporary Art. Please stop by and meet the artists and see this comprehensive exhibit of contemporary art on the Santa Monica theme curated by Jeffrey Crussell Executive Director, Crussell Fine Arts with Pamela Grau, Crussell Fine Arts Exhibition Director accompanied by a critical essay by critic, Rob Mintz.

The 50 pieces of art exhibited at OCCCA in Santa Monica - The Art of Summer, is from a compilation of work derived from a project developed by Crussell Fine Arts as a democratic means in search of art for Bloomingdales new store in Santa Monica, California. Close to 1,100 pieces of art from some 400 artists living or working throughout Southern California were presented to Bloomingdales for review. The search was open to any and all artists no matter their experience or representation. The artist's identities were concealed during the process until Bloomingdale's made their final selections to purchase work for their new Santa Monica stores permanent collection.
