Join Curatorial Fellow Jean Stern as he discusses the life and art of Edgar A. Payne with a slide-illustrated lecture on one of California’s most important artists. Born in Missouri, Payne was essentially a self-taught artist. He came to Southern California in 1911 and fell in love with the beauty of the landscape. He was one of the first artists to paint in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and became one of the founders and first president of the Laguna Beach Art Association.
The lecture will feature archival photographs and show numerous examples of his works. It will last approximately 45 minutes, with time afterwards for questions and answers.
Advance tickets recommended.
