ART EVENTS: West Coast


Palm Springs, CA

Andrew Wyeth Exhibition

PALM SPRINGS ART MUSEUM

Andrew Wyeth is one of the best-known American artists of the 20th century, and many of his works, such as CHRISTINA'S WORLD, have become iconic. Wyeth possessed an intensely realist style and an extraordinary technical mastery of several different media, such as egg tempera and watercolor. Over his long career he explored a variety of themes, concentrating primarily on the land and people surrounding his beloved homes in Chadds Ford, PA, and Cushing, ME. This month the Palm Springs Art Museum features 30 works by the artist. The presentation provides a general overview of Wyeth's development as an artist and explores key elements in his oeuvre, including his strong compositional sense of formal relationships as well as his use of contrasting light and shadow to help build depth and mood. Some works on display are from private collections and are not often seen in public exhibitions. Wyeth's importance in modern American art has undergone a steady examination over the past decades, and the intent of this exhibition is to contribute to the evolving reassessment and appreciation of his art. The show runs through January 22. For more information: 760.322.4800 or www.psmuseum.org.

Pasadena, CA

Richard Bunkall Exhibition

PASADENA MUSEUM OF CALIFORNIA ART

The Pasadena Museum of California Art presents a survey of works by Richard Bunkall this month. Bunkall was known for his brooding and compelling ubanscapes that often depicted massive steam engines, planes, and ships. At times his works evoke a sense of nostalgia for a bygone era. The show includes paintings, drawings, sculptures, and an elaborate installation piece. Bunkall, who was a longtime resident of Pasadena, died in 1999 after a five-year struggle with Lou Gehrig's disease. The show is on view January 22-May 20. For more information: 626.568.3665 or www. pmcaonline.org.
