The California Art Club celebrated the opening of its signature event — the 108th annual Gold Medal Exhibition — with a weekend of preview activities. The Collectors’ Preview on Friday, kicked off the festivities, as attendees of this exclusive event for Gold Medal sponsors and Collectors’ Circle members enjoyed a coveted first look at the works in the exhibition of contemporary-traditional fine art while they dined in the gallery surrounded by the artwork. On view at the former location of the Pasadena Museum of California Art, the display of nearly 300 works of art is open to the public through Friday, March 29. During the exhibition run, the California Art Club will offer a series of free educational programs for art enthusiasts.
