It is well worth a trip to LA to see the current CAC Gold Medal Exhibition at the Autry Museum. The quality of the paintings and sculpture represent the best work of many nationally recognized living artists. You'll want to spend several hours there, the scope of the work is amazing. (Don't miss the life-size giraffe sculpture and wall of small format paintings, all beautiful gems, worthy of your attention.) I'm fortunate to have 3 paintings in the show, and honored to have work alongside artists with national reputations I've admired for many years. Some have become friends and mentors. All the work is available for purchase.Hope you'll be able to see the work in person. If not you can view the exhibition by clicking here. Don't wait too long. The exhibition ends April 24, 2016!
