Last year, Fine Art Today had the pleasure of detailing the California Art Club’s “Road Trip” exhibition, which showcased a number of artists representing their Golden State. Kicking off their 2016 exhibition season is a compelling show that looks beyond California’s boundaries.
On view from January 12 through May 15 at the California Art Club’s Old Mill Gallery, “Traversing the Globe” will feature nearly 40 outstanding artworks that seek to transport the viewer to far-off lands and places. The artists’ club is one of the oldest in the country, having existed for nearly a century. All of the exhibiting artists are members of the club and have traveled abroad to some of the most exotic places, capturing the sights, culture, and character largely en plein air.

The club points out, “The featured paintings showcase imagery of some of the world’s most famous cities, quaint countrysides, breathtaking coastlines and awe-inspiring landmarks, including the Great Wall of China and La Fontaine Medicis in Paris.”
