Opening Reception: Thursday, September 15, 6 to 8pm


HERMS Gamba MULLICAN Fall of Icarus

The Tobey C. Moss Gallery presents CALIFORNIA GOLD, an exhibition of highlights illustrated in our newest catalogue, to

which was published September 2005.
 

The catalogue and exhibition highlight the wonderful and diverse art and artists of California, with a particular focus upon

the artists of Los Angeles, whose influences can be felt in the works of contemporary artists.


The earliest piece featured is a rare work by REX SLINKARD (Nude, pencil drawing, 1915), an early harbinger of Modernism

who died very young in the flu epidemic of 1918.  We also include works by GORDON WAGNERGEORGE HERMS

JOHN BERNHARDT

that reflect the evolution of the ‘California Assemblage’ movement.   Herms’ assemblage, Clue To,

is an homage to the great jazz pianist Dodo Marmarosa .  Glowing colors in YNEZ JOHNSTON’s  painting, Journey without End,

transports her viewers to mystical sites.  An early placid still life by FREDERICK HAMMERSLEY vies with a shocking cultural

scene by JOHN LANGLEY HOWARD.


The exhibition will also span the media with paintings by LEONARD EDMONDSONLORSER FEITELSON,

HELEN LUNDEBERGSTANTON MACDONALD-WRIGHTJOHN MCLAUGHLINLEE MULLICAN; sculpture by

CHARLES ARNOLDI and PETER KRASNOW; watercolors by NICHOLAS P. BRIGANTE and DAVID P. LEVINE;

collages by BETYE SAAR and EMERSON WOELFFER;  prints by LEE CHESNEYWERNER DREWES and CLINTON

, the latter being one of the first artists to work at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in 1960,

eventually becoming its director in 1970.
