The California Art Club has joined the national Artists Sunday alliance to promote artisans and craftspeople on Artists Sunday, which will be celebrated for the first time this year on November 29, the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
More from the organizers:
The oldest arts organization in the West will unveil during the holiday weekend “Welcome to California,” a virtual display that showcases more than 200 small works – both paintings and sculpture – of the land and lifestyle of the Golden State.
“Welcome to California” is on view November 29, 2020, to January 29, 2021. All paintings offered in this virtual exhibition will be no larger than 12 x 16 inches, and the longest dimension for sculptures will be 12 inches.
Artists Sunday, falling between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday®, and Cyber Monday, is a day dedicated to encouraging consumers to shop with artists and give something special, unique, and hand-crafted this holiday season. With its long history, the California Art Club recognizes the important role that artists play in positively influencing culture and communities, while adding expression and beauty to lives.
“The California Art Club is honored to participate in the inaugural Artists Sunday and shine the spotlight on talented artisans and their work,” said Addy Stupin, Exhibitions Manager for the century-old organization of both artists and art enthusiasts. “We are looking forward to the opening of our virtual exhibition Welcome to California, which will allow art enthusiasts to ‘visit’ our state during the pandemic and take in the state’s iconic imagery, which has been synonymous with our artists since our founding in 1909,” added Stupin.
Artists and arts organizations from across the country are participating in Artists Sunday, representing a full range of art, hand-crafted items, and performances. The diversity of artisans allows consumers to “shop art” this Artists Sunday and give something personal and meaningful this holiday season.
