Oceanside Museum of Art is emphasizing San Diego artists, collections and themes with several focused and major exhibitions throughout 2015.  These exhibitions will span the area's traditional and contemporary art history, epitomized this spring in partnership with the San Diego Museum of Art (SDMA) and their Artist Guild. OMA's two main floor galleries will be dedicated to presenting 100 Artists: 100 Years, The San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild, 1915-2015.

Artwork from 100 of the greatest artists to have lived and worked in San Diego in the last century will be presented in both of OMA's large downstairs galleries.  This exhibition will be in partnership with SDMA's exhibition of over a dozen paintings from their permanent collection in support of the Artists Guild and centennial celebration in Balboa Park.

Curated by Mark-Elliott Lugo and Penny Hill, this Centennial exhibition partnership with OMA will also produce a comprehensive book publication that will provide valued scholarship about our region's visual arts history and most important artists over the past century.  The guild has been instrumental in the formation of the SDMA in 1926 and has consistently invigorated the cultural life of the San Diego region over many decades.

Reception: Saturday, April 25, 2015 - For more information, please click here.
