The California Art Club, founded in 1909, is celebrating its Centennial by means of projects designed to "preserve and document California's heritage through art." This current exhibit, On Location in Malibu 2009, is the fourth such visit the CAC has made to Malibu since 1999 to chronicle the varied and beautiful terrain of this beachfront community, and its first since the devastating wildfires of 2007. Over 75 paintings and sculptures created specifically for this exhibition by members of the Club will be on view at the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University through August 9th, but for those who cannot visit the show, the pieces are also available to view online. The catalog is available from the CAC Gift Shop.
Also of note, Dick Blick Art Materials has arranged to donate a percentage of sales made at their online store, via the CAC website, back to the Club. The next time you plan on ordering supplies from Blick, simply visit the CAC site, and click on the Blick Art Materials logo in the bottom left hand corner of the page. 10% of all sales made this way through the site will be given back to support the California Art Club.
