GENERATIONS: THE WATERCOLORS OF SIX CALIFORNIA ARTISTS
AT LUCKMAN FINE ARTS GALLERY
MAY 27 - JUNE 30, 1996

A group of six watercolorists reflecting a broad range of artistic expressons from the California School are featured in Generations: The Watercolors of Six California Artists at the Luckman Fine Arts Gallery, from Saturday, May 25 through Monday, June 30, 1996. The gallery will be open Mondays through Thursdays and Saturdays from 12 noon to 5 p.m.

The roster of artists, whose works span the golden era of California scene painting, to a more abstract, less regional approach, includes Bill Anderson, Howard Hitchcock, Al Porter, Tony Sheets, Robert E. Wood and Milford Zornes.

"Being a Californian is ... a style; it's a philosophy. Sun, pine-covered mountains, desert, golden hills, ocean, snow, boats, color, they surround the artist with limitless possibilities," says Mary Carroll Nelson in Watercolor Workshop, the book she

co-authored with Robert E. Wood, one of the featured artists. The works of the six artists appearing at the Luckman each have their own unique declaration of the California philosophy of watercolor art. The subjects of their work are equally varied.

The Harriet & Charles Luckman Fine Arts Complex is noted for its integrity in bringing the arts in their most creative and innovative forms to Southern California. The Complex is located at the Eastern Avenue exit of the I-10 (San Bernardino) freeway, on the campus of California State University, Los Angeles. Luckman's striking red brick structures house one of the newest performing arts theatres and fine arts galleries in Los Angeles. For additional information about the Generations exhibit call (323) 343-6610.
