Summer Art Show at Crystal Cove
On July 26 – 28, 2019, Crystal Cove Conservancy is proud to present our 2019 Summer Art Show! This season we will be featuring a diverse exhibit with 50 works by local artists, and 26 pieces from all new artists. An exclusive preview and artist reception will be held on Friday, July 26th from 5-7:30pm. Guests will have the chance to meet our talented artists and enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres, and live music. The free public exhibition takes place Saturday and Sunday, July 27-28, from 10am to 4pm.
Going back to the earliest years of the 20th century, artists of all sorts have found Crystal Coves’ bluffs and beaches to be a source of endless inspiration, expressed beautifully in the California Impressionist style. The California Impressionists attempted to document the natural landscape for the enjoyment of future generations, typically en plein air. From all of this sprang a long standing and vibrant community in Orange County that continues to this very day, nearly 100 years later!
“We are casting a wider net than ever in an effort to bring new eyes and new voices into the Cove’s artistic purview.” Says Store Manager Kian Maleki. “The Conservancy’s art program helps keep the tradition of California Impressionism alive in one of Southern California’s most beautiful historic sites.”
Tickets for Friday’s reception are $10 for Conservancy members, and $20 for the general public. Click here to purchase tickets. Proceeds will go towards The Conservancy operations and State Parks. We’ll see you there!
