The San Marino League, a Southern California nonprofit organization committed to philanthropic work in the community as well as furthering their own knowledge of fine arts, will hold Art Matters, a juried fine art sale, on March 28-29 at The Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens.
Art Matters attracts some of the country’s best artists, providing more than 150 exceptional juried paintings available for purchase, as well as original 3D creations, such as glass art, ceramics, pottery, sculpture, and jewelry crafted especially for the show by selectively invited artisans. The juried fine art exhibition will be anchored by nine Featured Artists chosen from a list of outstanding painters, including Peter Adams, Sid Bingham, Karl Dempwolf, Wayne Hunt, Brent Jensen, Joan Kahn, Michael Obermeyer, Jason Situ and Thalia Stratton.
Jurors for the exhibition include Seth Baker, head gardener of the Brody California Garden, Education and Visitors Center at The Huntington; Stephen Nowlin, vice president of Exhibitions and director of the Alyce Roulet de Williamson Gallery at ArtCenter College of Design; and Richard Rice, director of international affairs at Galerie Michael in Beverly Hills, California.
Entry to Art Matters 2020 will be included with the price of admission to The Huntington on Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29.
Proceeds from the sale will be split 50/50 between the artists and the San Marino League for their two beneficiaries: Fine Art student scholarships at ArtCenter College of Design and the Japanese Garden Endowment at The Huntington.
