Well known and respected in his native Mexico, Artemio Sepúlveda (born 1935) married an American wife and from 1977 until 1999 lived in Laguna Beach. The museum recently acquired a large-scale charcoal drawing of his father that was made during his stay in Laguna, and the exhibition will bring together other works from this period of his career, mostly from local collections. They range from life-drawings and sensitive portrait studies to expressionistic paintings of prostitutes in Tijuana.
For their kind support of the exhibition, the museum is grateful to Genny Boccardo-Dubey and Frank Dubey, the Tellez Family, Elaine and Richard Frazee, Jim Keeshen and Helena Keeshen, and Gail and Ron Waters.
