California Women in Long Beach
|Sharon Ellis, Winter, 1994|
Arranged chronologically, "Decade by Decade" starts with a Mabel Alvarez from 1925. The selection skews heavily toward painting, with a few sculptures, drawings, and prints. A photography show from the LBMA collection is planned for later in the year.
|Ruth Gannett, untitled, 1948|
|Helen Lundeberg, Still Life with Folded Paper, 1961|
|Florence Arnold, Sea and Sky, 1959|
"Decade by Decade" merits more attention than it's gotten, given how rarely these objects are shown. Also on view are works by Agnes Pelton, Claire Falkenstein, June Wayne, Joyce Treiman, Beatrice Wood, Helen Pashgian, Joan Brown, D.J. Hall, Alison Saar, Sharon Ellis, Astrid Preston, and Margaret Honda.
