William D. Cannon Art Gallery Juried show 2013

2013 Juried Biennial of the William D. Cannon Art Gallery has a number of SDVAN listed artists. Many congratulations to all those who are displays. The  jurors Scott Canty, Director of the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery at Barnsdall and Director of Exhibitions at the Palos Verdes Art Center, and Chantel Paul, Assistant Curator of the Museum of Photographic Arts (MOPA) (1775 Dove Lane, Carlsbad, CA 92011) More info: Karen McGuire 760.602.2021

Vincent Robles and the opening credit board
In conversation with Scott Canty, director of the Barnsdall Art Gallery, I found a gentleman saddened to reject over 50 works to narrow the choice of this show to a very large 111 art pieces. He seemed torn but knew ultimately that the show would suffer if this space had to hold all the works he and colleague Chantel Paul choose out of the 1200 entries. I imagine the staff was relieved and hanging all these works by 72 different artists (including 35 from North County)  in their space was a testament to their abilities. Seeing old friends was very rewarding with very fine works by Anna Zappoli, Duke Winsor (a seductive pink striped canvas), Cheryl Tall, Irene de Watteville, Irene Abraham, Dan Adams, Reed Cardwell, Paul Henry, Jill Le Croissette, Viviana Lombrozo, Allison Renshaw, Vincent Robles, Deanne Sabeck, Julia San Roman, Betsy Schultz, Neil Shigley

But the most interesting thing about the show was how many artists we did not know or know very well. We were especially pleased to discover a few excellent photographers and 54 artists never shown before at the Cannon Gallery 

We also include news of a few other exhibitions visited this month including:

Please enjoy this preview of the Cannon show and go and see all 100 works at the show itself.
