Landscape exhibition returns to Davis

The John Natsoulas Gallery will host the 13th annual California Landscape Exhibition from Wednesday, July 30, to Saturday, Sept. 20. There will be an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at the gallery, 521 First St.

From the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the Pacific Ocean, California has an abundance of natural beauty that has drawn artists to the state for generations. The legacy of landscape painting started with Alberdt Bierdstadt’s turn-of-the-century paintings of Yosemite and grew with the depiction of rolling vineyards and lyrical coastlines by William Keith. California has always offered unique opportunities for artists to expand their visual horizons, and the 13th annual California Landscape Exhibition is yet another opportunity to celebrate Northern California’s artistic legacy and growing mythos.
The rocky beaches, arid deserts and lush agricultural land are just a few of California’s multitude of complex and consistently developing eco-systems, providing endless possibilities for unique works of art. Contemporary artists such as Pat Mahony, Bud Gordon, Philippe Gandiol, Boyd Gavin and Leslie Toms have taken the multifaceted nature of California and brought new ways of viewing landscapes to the John Natsoulas Gallery. The exhibition displays original representations of scenic vistas and cityscapes and offers visitors the opportunity to view the familiar in new and exciting ways.
There has never been a single prevailing Californian aesthetic, but it is the consistent reference to nature that seems to assert itself as our state’s ubiquitous influence within the broader artistic community.

Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
