Now on view, Artemio Sepúlveda brings together works from the later 1970s until 1999, when the artist who was well known and respected in his native Mexico lived and worked in Laguna Beach. Travels in Mexico: Watercolors from the Diane and E. Gene Crain Collection features California School paintings done in Mexico from the 1930s through the 1980s, from a private collection formed around personal relationships between collector and artists.

We look forward

to having you
