Peter Adams and Jeremy Lipking in Southwest Art Magazine’s 40 Prominent People in the Western Art World May 2011 Special Edition
California Art Club – Peter Adams, President
Distinction: The club has made significant contributions to the revival of interest in traditional, representational painting and sculpture.
What has been the biggest change you’ve seen in the art world during your career?
When I became an artist in 1978, traditional realist art was not even on the map in the art world. Now it has achieved a foothold in Southern California’s art establishment.
How do you think the CAC has contributed to appreciation for traditional art over the years?
The club presents more than 20 exhibitions each year. And our quarterly newsletter, which is 32 pages long and printed in color, has been our best ambassador.
