The following information about the exhibit comes from the Pasadena Museum of History website:
Contemporary Masters, Artistic Eden IV is the fourth biennial fine art exhibition featuring scenes of the greater San Gabriel Valley by nationally recognized representational artists. The exhibition is on view Wednesdays through Sundays from 12:00 to 5:00 pm in the Museum’s Kathryne Beynon Foundation Exhibition Hall through January 11, 2015.
In the early years of California Impressionism, the unique and spectacular beauty of the greater Pasadena area was the frequent subject of beautiful artworks, many of which are now in museum collections nationwide. This exhibition recognizes and sustains the area’s rich artistic heritage.
Hundreds of representational artists were invited to create and submit artwork for possible inclusion in this singular, juried event. One hundred and one contemporary pieces – including paintings, sculptures, and photographs – were selected, representing the artistic vision of eighty different artists. A special display of a dozen vintage paintings of the San Gabriel Valley, on loan from private collectors, by Frank Coburn (1862-1938), Eugene Franquinet (1875-1940), Joseph Greenbaum (1864-1940), Nellie Hofman (1868-1944), Samuel Hyde Harris (1889-1977), Mable Packard (1873-1938), Hanson D. Puthuff (1875-1972), Louis H. Sharp (1874-1946), and Peter A. Stetzenko (1886-1971) provides historic context for the exhibition’s present-day works.
Contemporary Masters, Artistic Eden IV is jointly curated by the sponsoring galleries of the Pasadena Art Gallery Association: Fremont Gallery (South Pasadena), Galerie Gabrie (Pasadena), Segil Fine Art Source (Monrovia), Silvana Gallery (Glendale), and Tirage Fine Art Gallery (Pasadena).
