For centuries the female figure has been the subject and inspiration for countless artworks. For example, Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Jan Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring and Madame X by John S. Sargent are all works that highlight the beauty of the feminine form. In the spirit of femininity, the Chaffey Community Museum of Art is exhibiting “Ladies of the Museum.” This is a collection of artworks portraying women in a variety of styles and media that transcend age and ethnicity. This exhibition is hosting 30 different paintings created by various artists from present day, as well as those dating back to the 1950s. All works come from CCMA’s permanent collection, which is one that originally started with only nine paintings. It has since then grown tremendously to include over 100 works from some of the most prominent artists in the western United States. Its initial focus was to collect the distinctive style found in works that depict geographical scenes of California’s mountains, deserts and gold coast line. The collection has grown beyond this focus to feature excellent regional artists like Anders Aldrin, Leon Amyx, Loren Barton, Conrad Buff, Thomas Craig, Emil Kosa, Jr., Phil Paradise, John Svenson, Anna Wilson and Robert E. Wood. Come see for yourself the beauty of the feminine form that is highlighted within this museum’s collection. (Dulce Balandran)
