Then and Now: 100 Years of Plein Air Painting
May 17 - October 2, 2014

image for the article
Jesse Powell, Little Treasure Cove, Oil on canvas
The tradition of painting beautiful landscapes nearly died out with the onset of Modernism in the 1940s, and thereafter with the development of abstract art in the 1950s and 1960s. However, starting in the 1980s, contemporary artists began to look once more at the beauty of the land and a thriving revival of American landscape painting took hold. California, with its beautiful and vibrant landscape, was at the center of the renewed interest in landscape painting, and many of these landscape artists were members of the California Art Club...

Rex Brandt: In Praise of Sunshine
June 29-September 21, 2014

image for the article
Laguna Art Museum presents a retrospective exhibition of the paintings of California landscape artist Rex Brandt (1914–2000), curated by Curator of Historical Art Janet Blake. Rex Brandt gained national renown for his watercolor paintings during the period from the mid 1930s to the 1990s. As a dedicated teacher of the watercolor medium, he conducted painting workshops both at his home in Corona del Mar, his summer home in the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington, and at several international locations. Brandt published more than ten books on watercolor painting, including The Winning Ways of Watercolor. Although he painted with other media (including oil, to which he developed an allergy), he preferred watercolor, which he considered to be the most expressive and the perfect vehicle to paint “light and air.”

The Art of Stem Cells
A UCI & OCCCA ARTS SCIENCE CONSORTIUM©

September 6 - October 10, 2014

image for the article
The OCCCA gallery presents a SciArt exhibit in collaboration with the scientists of the Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center at UCI. This exhibit is a unique melding of artists and scientists meeting, interviewing and touring their laboratories. Scientists and artists have always been engaged in trying to fathom the reality beyond appearances, the world invisible to our eyes. In Leonardo da Vinci’s day their was no distinction between artist and scientist. Since that time, we began to think of art as depicting nature and science as tearing it apart. Now we are witnessing the birth of a new movement in art being identified as SciArt...
