California Art Club to Unveil 103rd Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition at the Autry National Center on March 30

The Only Exhibition of Its Kind, This Display of Contemporary-Traditional Fine Art Pays Homage to the First Artistic Movement Defined as Uniquely Californian

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2014) - The California Art Club will present the 103rd Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition at the Autry National Center of the American West in Los Angeles from March 30 to April 20.

This annual display of contemporary-traditional fine art is the only one of its kind in the nation, juried by a panel of museum scholars and nationally-renowned artists to identify the highest quality of work that builds upon the rich legacy of the early California Impressionist painters that founded the organization in 1909.

The upcoming Gold Medal Exhibition will feature more than 200 never-before-seen paintings and sculpture, created using time-honored fine art techniques. The display is unthemed to encourage artists to take risks and raise the bar with their art, and the selected works document the ever-evolving world, addressing issues such as environmental conservation and urbanization.

"We are honored to present the 103rd Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition at the Autry for the second time in three years," says CAC President Peter Adams. "As the Club was founded by artists who migrated to the West and inspired the first artistic movement to be defined as uniquely Californian, it is fitting that our hallmark exhibition is being displayed at the premier museum dedicated to sharing the stories of life in the American West."

Among the exhibiting artists are nationally renowned artists Peter Adams, John Asaro, Belá Bácsi, Warren Chang, John Cosby, Dennis Doheny, Michelle Dunaway, David C. Gallup, Max Ginsburg, Cindy Jackson, C.W. Mundy, Ray Roberts, Mian Situ, Christopher Slatoff and William Stout.

During the exhibition, the Club will present educational programs that enable art enthusiasts to learn about traditional art forms. Details are posted at www.californiaartclub.org.
