Hilbert Museum OF CALIFORNIA ART At Chapman University

Mark and Jan Hilbert

i

n the gathering darkness of an early evening, two men wait for a train at a small rural station. The human figures, heads bowed, each isolated under a lamp, seem to be wrapped in their own thoughts as they wait to be taken somewhere, anywhere … elsewhere. It’s a timeless scene, except for the telephone poles that stretch diagonally into the background, and the car that sits just out of the center light’s reach. Those elements, and the lonely mood evoked by the artist, set the image firmly in the era of America’s Great Depression. Lee Blair, Mary by the Sea, 1934, oil on canvas

Phil Dike, Plaza on Sunday, 1939-42, oil on canvas

This melancholy, thought-provoking moment in time was captured in watercolor in 1933 by California artist Millard Sheets, one of the leading lights of what came to be called California Scene painting – which was part of the American Regionalist art movement. The evocative image, “San Dimas Train Station” (cover), is every inch as powerful as a slightly later Regionalist art icon, Edward Hopper’s 1942 “Night Hawks” – but at this point, much less well known. That will all change soon, if Newport Coast art collectors Mark and Janet Hilbert and Chapman University have anything to say about it. In November 2014, Chapman announced that it had received a major gift of California art, valued at more than $7 million, from the continued on pg. 20 Architect rendering of The Hilbert Museum of California Art at Chapman University

Hilbert Museum Of California Art

Emil Kosa, Near Modesto, 1940, oil on canvas

Hilberts, in addition to $3 million from the couple toward establishing a museum on campus in which to permanently display the collection to the public. “This will be the first museum anywhere that is totally dedicated to the display of California Scene and California representational art,” said Mark Hilbert. “The intent will be to cast a spotlight on this style of painting and these amazing artists, and to make this art known around the world. California has its own style, its own light, its own distinct landscape. California Scene paintings are distinguished from the earlier style of California Impressionism because these works show people and the works of humans: towns, cities, harbors, houses, ranches, cars, trains – people going about their everyday lives. These paintings show the changes taking place across our state as it grew, starting around 1920 – changes that are still happening and reflected in today’s representational art.”

t

he Hilbert Museum will augment and strengthen the Orange County museum scene with its unique focus: representational regionalist art created by Californians from the early 20th century on. It will augment the California Impressionist collection of The Irvine Museum (California Impressionism celebrates nature but does not include humans or their works) and fills in the county’s artistic gap between the treasured antiquities of the Bowers Museum and the primarily non-objective, contemporary art of OCMA. A portion of the Hilbert collection of more than 1,000 paintings – mostly works in watercolor and oil created from the 1930s to the 1970s by such luminaries of the California Scene movement as Sheets, Emil Kosa Jr., Phil Dike, Milford Zornes and Rex Brandt, among others – will be displayed in the Hilbert Museum of California Art, in a building renovated by Chapman University to introduce the public to this engaging and important genre of art. The Museum is located at 167 N. Atchison Street, across from Ruby’s and the Orange train station. Admission and parking are free. The Hilbert Museum will celebrate its Grand Opening with an Open House on Friday and Saturday, February 26 and 27, 2016 – on Friday from 12 noon to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public, with free parking. See www.hilbertmuseum.org or www.chapman.edu/arts/hilbert-museum.aspx for more details.

hil Dike’s Southern Town is part of the new P Hilbert Museum’s rich collection of California Art. True to scene painter form, this example captures everyday life as it unfolded. Dike’s mastery of color and composition strongly aided his depictions and his fluid style added energy to each and every setting. The Hilbert Museum honors Dike and his contemporaries and brings welcomed focus to the Orange County museum scene. The Hilbert Museum will celebrate its Grand Opening on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 26 and 27. – on Friday from 12 noon to 5 p.m., and on Saturday from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public, with free parking.

“plein air” painting as a technique for some or all of their oils; for Jacobus Baas, one of the founders of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, “it was like discovering a new world!”

ince the invention of portable easels in the 1800’s, many artists have taken inspiration from painting outdoors in nature, away from the studio. In the past twenty years there has been a renewed interest in “plein air,” or location painting, as a popular style for both artists and collectors.

Baas began painting outdoors in 1994, and now travels between California, Hawaii, and Maine, looking for inspiration in varied landscapes. “I seek to expand my painting by searching for scenes with a natural beauty that a viewer might miss in their rush through everyday life. This could be as simple as the reflections in water of fishing boats tied to a dock, a wave breaking against the rocks, or clouds floating across the sky.” Baas will showcase new works from all three locations in an upcoming exhibition at Pacific Edge Gallery this May. .

Transcending Truth

the

worldly Otherworldly paintings of Pamela Wilson Wilson By Evan Senn

Crashing waves and far off explosions frame a tattered and torn woman, wearing an outfit that looks like a blend of Mad Max warrior-wear and aged yet delicate Victorian couture. With mix-matched props, a slight affinity for the circus, and curious treasures she obviously holds dear, this mystery woman seems to live in a pleasant fairy tale suited for nightmares. The woman is one of many figures in this strange land, all created by artist Pamela Wilson. Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based Wilson is drawn to color and drama in life and in art. Her photo-realistic oil paintings are vibrant and passionate, with dark and tumultuous undertones. Wilson creates fascinating narratives in her paintings, of strange worlds and intimate moments. She reaches to the dark places in our souls and has a keen ability to guide the viewer to a place of personal reflection and connection with her subjects and visual stories.

Camella Called by the Cerulean Sea, Pamela Wilson America Art Collector Cover, June 2014

Her imagination and fantastical artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye sees things most of us cannot. She creates whole worlds where everyone is strange and enchanting, haunting and ethereal. Her figurative-based oil paintings are some of the most evocative and meticulously rendered paintings we have ever had the privilege to dive into with all our heart and soul.

LOCALARTS.COM

Magic ships and violent children are paired with taxidermy and Victorian outfits, often taking place in a barren land of brush, stones, abandoned train tracks and fiery landscapes. Her created world is like an isolated dreamscape of one or two beings alone. The physical and emotional isolation of her characters are a hallmark of her style, and recalls a bit of her own journey growing into herself.


Underwater, 2014, Pamela Wilson

Inspired by a turbulent childhood and embracing her unique condition, synesthesia, Wilson’s world is enthralling and sensational. Images are thoroughly rendered and scenes ease to life thanks to Wilson’s creative aptitude. At first glance, the talent and technique behind her style of creation is mind-boggling, but upon further observation, her stories are the most attractive aspects of her work.

Wilson genuinely sees the world differently than others. She sees everything in elaborate pictures—everything has a gender, a color, a place. She admits in interviews that she has always had trouble expressing herself through words, and but has been able to use her artistic gifts to fully express her feelings, her thoughts, and ideas. continued on pg. 50

PamelaWilson Wilson

Pamela Wilson at TRAC

is a powerful human experience, not just a creation or decoration. The power of art is undeniable, and Wilson is a strong proponent for the enrichment of the classroom through incorporating more art and poetry into educational programs, and has been teaching and mentoring young artists since 1990. Wilson has been exhibited in countless exhibitions across the globe, numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums like Ventura County Museum, Carnegie Art Museum, Long Beach Museum of Art, University of California Art Museum (Santa Barbara), San Diego Museum of Art, among many others. This powerhouse of creativity and compelling narratives is also a Mentor for Laguna College of Art and Design’s MFA program, and has been an active exhibiting artist for 25 years. With a Bachelor’s Degree from San Diego State University and an MFA from in painting and photography from University of California, Santa Barbara, among many other independent studies at select universities all over the world, Wilson is more dedicated, passionate, and active than most artists.

Crestfallen Interlopers, 2014, Pamela Wilson

Wilson believes that artists have the innate power and responsibility to be honest in their work, and nothing more. She believes that art has no rules, and its purpose is to move people—through emotion, through thought—inexplicable at its core, art

Circus Circus, 2015, Pamela Wilson

LOCALARTS.COM

Wilson is currently showing at Q Art Salon in Santa Ana, as part of an academic artists’ show featuring ten working academic professor-artists from all over California called “Fleshed Out.” She is currently represented by Sarah Bain Gallery in Brea, EVOKE Contemporary in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Lovetts Gallery in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Distinction Gallery in Escondido, California, and RJD Gallery in Sag Harbor, New York— where she will be having a solo exhibit in August 2016. 2016 will be a banner year for Wilson, with major exhibitions in Colorado, L.A., and Santa Monica. Though her paintings are beautiful, addressing “beauty” is not of concern to Wilson. Her work is pushed forward by her fascination to seek representing a psychological moment, a different kind of beauty. The beauty in the dark and abnormal can be ten times stronger and more meaningful than traditional ideas of “beauty.” Wilson finds pleasure in understanding the human condition, the dark and hilarious absurdities that are all too common for us today, and she loves the opportunity to allow viewers to feel creative, drawn to, or inspired by her creations, on a personal level. Upon introduction to a Pamela Wilson painting in person, viewers are taken aback, stunned and attracted like a moth to a flame—her unique vantage on the world and fascinating compositions will make you fall in love with darkness and experience, and the expressive nature of being human. www.pamelawilsonfineart.com

art history

Edward Hopper: Painting a Moment by Joy Shannon

Though Hopper's works easily inspire the imagination to create the stories that might inhabit them, the painter rejected the idea of narratives behind his work, stating "the figures were not what interested me; it was the light streaming down." In his focus on light and landscape, rather than narrative, Hopper shows his influence from late 19th-century Impressionism and Realism. Two of his painting instructors at the New York School of Art, who influenced his style, reflected these two movements: William Merrit Chase was an Impressionist and Robert Henri was a Realist.

Edward Hopper, self portrait, 1906

o

ften best known for the lonely, war-time urban landscape in the 1942 painting "Nighthawks," American painter Edward Hopper created enduring works which capture a sense of solitude, melancholy, anticipation and silence. While he could be called a Realist, at times paintings like his 1951 "Rooms by the Sea" border on the surreal, as they create dreamy moods which speak directly to the subconscious. Ever cinematic in his use of light and thoughtful composition, Hopper's paintings can feel like scenes in the middle of a story which the viewers must fillin for themselves, giving these silent moments thought, circumstances and words of explanation.

New York Movie, 1939

LOCALARTS.COM

Spending time in Paris early in his career, Hopper additionally took inspiration from French Impressionists Ă&#x2030;douard Manet and Edgar Degas who sought to be painters of modern life, as the poet Charles Baudelaire preached. Manet's melancholic 1881-1882 painting "A Bar at the Folies-Bergere" of an exhausted barmaid in the midst of a lively crowded cafe, foreshadows the bleak solitude of the figures in Hopper's works. Similarly influential were Degas' works, like his mysterious scene in the 1868-1869 painting "Interior." This work shows a couple in a dimly-lit room who seem to both be silently suffering or, at the very least, isolated in thought without interacting with each other. Hopper would go on to paint his own scenes of figures in quiet, isolated suffering, as seen in the 1942 painting "Nighthawks" and the 1927 painting "Automat."


Nighthawks, 1942

Western painting, prior to these 19th century Impressionists and Realists, usually contained the comfort of a narrative that the audience could immediately recognize. Popular for several centuries were paintings painted in a sharp and well-blended style, of mythological or biblical scenes, which contained symbolism and stories widely recognizable in Western culture. Painters like Manet utterly upset the establishment with ambiguous and inex-

plicable paintings like "Le Dejeuner sur l'Herbe," which contained unidealized figures who were unknown to the audience, painted in a loose, immediate style with visible brushstrokes. Hopper would go on to continue this trend, by painting softly-focused scenes of American life as he saw it, bleak or mundane snapshots of modern life with all its unknowns, sufferings and boredom. But unlike these French Impressionists, Hopper's palette of color continued on pg. 62

Automat, 1927

Second Story Sunlight, 1960

in his works seem to capture something uniquely American in his depiction of the light in the urban and rural landscapes of the East Coast, from the desolate sprawl of industrial cities to the windy wide-open seaside spaces of Cape Cod.

Though Hopper lived from 1882 to 1967, painting through roughly the first half of the 20th century, what he captured in his artwork feels timeless, as if it easily Perhaps because Hopper's artworks lack an easy could have been painted today. Perhaps it was his insistence to explanation, paintings like "The House by the Railroad," "Nighthawks" and "New York Movie" have in- focus on light, rather than narrative, that makes his paintings universpired many other artists, especially filmmakers, to sally, relate-ably human in their continue on the legacy of this imagery of American life. "The House by the Railroad" notably influenced moods. Therein lies the wonderful the shots of the old house in Hitchcock's film "Psy- dichotomy within Hopper's works, cho," as well as the home in Terrence Malick's "Days by capturing an ephemeral splitof Heaven." Numerous filmmakers cite "Nighthawks" second moment in time and light as an influence, such as Ridley Scott in "Blade Run- and humanity, he created something compellingly enduring. â&#x2C6;&#x17E; ner" and Wim Wenders in "The End of Violence."
