DON MARTIN (1931-1989)

And other Masters of California Post-War Art

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 4th4-8pm // Exhibition Dates: May 4th– July 6th, 2019

Don Martin’s art is far too unique and varied to be categorized. Living and working in Mexico in the fifties, in Venice, CA, in part of the sixties, and finally on a farm near Santa Cruz for the remainder of his life, the places and times influenced his work, but his styles and choices of media were always personal. Sometimes irreverent and sometimes deeply spiritual, sometimes spontaneous and sometimes painstakingly crafted over long periods of time, he was the opposite of a one trick pony.

Also showing work by other masterful artists of the era including Paul Beattie, Karl Benjamin, Dorr Bothwell, Hans Burkhardt, Claire Falkenstein, Robert B. Howard, Ynez Johnston, Karl Kasten, Frank Lobdell, Mary Fuller McChesney, Robert P. McChesney, Nathan Oliveira, Deborah Remington, Louis Siegriest, June Wayne, and others.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, May 4thfrom 4-8pm. The exhibition will run May 4th– July 6th, 2019.
