The Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University presents “On Location in Malibu 2018: Paintings by the California Art Club,” through July 29.
The seventh in a triennial series that began in 1999, the exhibit features more than 70 paintings of Malibu created by artist-members of the California Art Club (CAC), the oldest continually operating artist association in the state. The current members include many of the best realist artists in the state. Members were invited to visit Malibu during this past year and create art specifically for this exhibition. Encouraged to use their creative imagination, some chose to paint overlooked places of exquisite beauty. Others looked at familiar landmarks, such as Malibu Pier or Point Dume, but captured them in unique ways.
Each artist has his or her own stylistic approach, creating works that are stunning reminders of the rare beauty of Malibu. The art is available for purchase, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the California Art Club and the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art. Free and open to the public. Arts.Pepperdine.edu
