SOUTHWEST ART MAGAZINE and the AMERICAN ART COLLECTOR, April 2009 issues, CAC Gold Medal Exhibition

The new April issue of AMERICAN ART COLLECTOR features an article about the California Art Club's 98th Annual Gold Medal Juried Exhibition and includes an image of my self-portrait, "Looking Inward" on page 82 with a little write-up about my art.



Also, SOUTHWEST ART MAGAZINE picked me for "Best of the West" in their April issue. There is a full page image of "Looking Inward" on page 30 along with a write up for the CAC Gold Medal Exhibition titled, "The Gold Standard".

These magazines will be on newsstands this week.


I'm excited about going to the Pasadena Museum of California Art for the CAC show, "Looking Inward" oil on canvas, 36 x 48 inches, will be included in the exhibition. The dates for it are April 26 through May 17. It is one of the most prestegious and collector-friendly art events in Southern California. Here's a link... http://www.californiaartclub.org/resources/gm.shtml


I also have a half page ad in the April issue of AMERICAN ART COLLECTOR with my painting, "Looking Outward" on page 79.

Tony, Congratulations on your appearance in "Art Collector".

I found your work through a mention on R. Garriott's blog, and I really love what you are doing. You make me miss California, plus you've been to France, and done some awesome paintings from Paris. I took lots of photos when I was in Paris and Provence last year that I still want to paint from.

There are so many great paintings on your blog, but a few I like are "Day's End", some of the California landmark diners and theaters, Mark Twain Hotel, Bridge on the Seine, Cathedral View.

Hi Tony, I just read my copy of SWA today and saw your amazing painting in it! And your painting got a HUGE amount of space on the page. Congratulations! I hope you do very well at the show too. Your work is compelling and deserves to be noticed!

Thanks Bill, glad you're in the show too. Your presence makes the evening at the Pasadena Museum even more fun.

Hi Marian, thanks! Come check it out, there's lots of great stuff there every year.

Hey Mona, thanks for bringing my attention to R. Garriott's blog! I'm honored by the award.

Some day I hope to get a little studio to work at while in Paris, at least for a few months. It would be great to go paint there and hit the Louvre day after day... really make an in depth study. I get so saturated with art while on vacation, seeing so much great stuff all at once can be overwhealming.

Glad you like my work!

Hi Kim,

It's funny... I didn't even know I was going to be in Southwest Art, you actually brought my attention to it. Thanks!

Hey Tony, that's great, glad they featured you - see you at the reception. Eric

Kim VanDerhoek said...

Anytime Tony! I was very excited to see someone's work that I know (well, I feel like I've met you and know you a little bit anyway) in SWA.

It's funny because when I think of your work that is the first painting that pops into my head. It is a personal favorite.

Hey, congratulations on the award, Tony. Didn't get to connect that night, a busy evening, but good fun -

tonypetersart said...

Hey Eric!

Sorry we didn't get a chance to connect at the CAC show, but I did see you sporting tails and a bow tie! Where was the top hat?

Loved your pieces in the show, the little plein-air piece was my favorite in the miniatures room.
