Helen Lundeberg: A Retrospective
Laguna Art Museum is proud to be organizing the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of a key figure in twentieth-century California art, Helen Lundeberg (1908-1999).
Frederick Hammersley: Works on Paper from the Permanent Collection
The museum’s collection is rich in drawings and prints by the renowned Los Angeles modernist Frederick Hammersley (1919-2009). This is largely thanks to the donation of thirty-eight of his works on paper by the Frederick Hammersley Foundation in 2014. The works range from casual studies from life to carefully composed abstractions. Hammersley was part of the same artistic circle as Helen Lundeberg, and the museum’s large-scale retrospective of Lundeberg’s work provides an opportune moment to show for the first time the bulk of its Hammersley holdings.
The exhibition will be shown on the museum’s upper level. Support for the exhibition was generously provided by the Frederick Hammersley Foundation.
City Life, Los Angeles: 1930s to 1950s
Beginning in the 1930s, many American artists turned their attention to scenes of everyday life, which they rendered in a realistic style. Often their paintings celebrated the development of the modern city and its hustle-bustle of activity. This exhibition focuses on urban scenes by the group of artists—most members of the California Water Color Society—who were the leading proponents of “American Scene” painting in California.
After 53 years, we have a new look…Please come celebrate with us May 5, from 3 pm to 9 pm as we show off our state of the art Gallery. Meet and talk with the artists, as you enjoy wine and appetizers. Looking forward to seeing you!
