South Gallery: Eye Approved
Critical Eye Studio

August 4 - October 9, 2016

Critical Eye Studio meets weekly in Redlands and has been painting together for several years. Not a painting or work of art is finished, or is shown, until it has been critiqued by the members. We all know that our work is improved because of suggestions from the members. We view critiques as a positive thing, and we welcome this time together. The artists in the group include Martha Cowan, Chick Curtis, Angela Koenig, Diana McGlaughlin, Tony Radcliffe and Trudy Wood.
Through October 9, 2016.

Spotlight Gallery: California Places and Faces
Mark Wood

August 18 - October 2, 2016
Having great memories of growing up in California, living in Napa, Thousand Oaks, and Pasadena. I've literally driven thousands of miles throughout the state. Almost everywhere I go in CA brings back pleasant memories, which is what I hope my CA paintings do for others who appreciate this beautiful state. Drawing or painting people is the best way to practice and improve as an artist. It requires observational skills and learning how to use the chosen medium to work in. The works are a glimpse into the artists’ studio.
Through October 2, 2016


Young Artist Alcove:
Emily Reynoso

September 1 - October 23, 2016

Young Artist statement:
"My artwork works as a stress reliever for me.  I love the process of making a piece rather than the outcome. I love the process because when working on a piece, I feel as if I'm on another planet.  A planet where I'm able to be myself and be as creative as I choose to be.  Portraits of women are a common theme in my artwork.  I hope in the future to better my artistic skills while making my art and to keep being inspired to create."
Through October 23, 2016

Selections from CCMA’s Collections 

July 7 - October 2, 2016

An original print is a work of art created through contact with a matrix such as a stone, block, plate, or screen that was created by the artist; it must have been printed manually by the artist or under the artist's direct supervision and was approved by the artist for quality and excellence. CCMA’s collection includes many prints. We share some of our Impressions with you from artists: Florence Arnold, Phil Dike, James Fuller, Robert George, Susan Lautmann Hertel, Henry Lee McFee, Phil Paradise, Millard Sheets, Don Laviere Turner, Veloy Vigil and Robert E. Wood.
Through October 2, 2016.

Inland Valley Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen keeps up with what's going on at CCMA. He recently wrote about the outdoor sculpture now gracing the front lawn of CCMA.
