100 Artists, 100 Years:
The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, 1915-2015
Exhibition at the Oceanside Museum of Art
April 18 - July 26, 2015
Exhibition at The San Diego Museum of Art Welcome Gallery
May 2 through August 30, 2015
100 Artists, 100 Years: The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, 1915-2015, a partnership of Oceanside Museum of Art and The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, will open in both of OMA’s first-floor galleries. Major disciplines including painting, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, photography, ceramics, furniture making, and architecture will be represented. This exhibition features works by one hundred distinguished artists who lived and worked in San Diego during the last century and who were, or are currently, Artists Guild members. Borrowed from local museums, institutions, galleries, private collections, and artists, many of these works have never been publicly exhibited. Exhibition curator Mark-Elliott Lugo states, “This exhibition will be a rare opportunity for viewers to experience in one venue the diverse range of art created in San Diego over the past century. I believe San Diegans will be excited and proud to see the exceptional skill and creativity of the artists who have lived and worked in the area.” 100 Artists, 100 Years: The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, 1915-2015, is on view from April 18-July 26, 2015.
To commemorate this important anniversary and to highlight the many important artists who were members of the Guild during the past one hundred years, the Guild’s board of directors established a committee to review the Guild membership rosters and develop a list of one hundred exceptional artist members for inclusion in a general interest book featuring full color reproductions of their artwork for publication in 2015.
