"Contemporary Expressionism" Opening Reception - NON HOSTED

" width="331" height="500" alt="postcard-4inx6in-h-front">

In conjunction with the play A Weekend with Pablo Picasso, the San Diego Museum of Art Artists Guild presents the juried exhibition Contemporary Expressionism: The Creative Spirit at Lyceum Gallery, San Diego, California,

Often focusing on the internal world of emotion and spirituality, or on identity and protest, Expressionism has many faces. This exhibition seeks to explore the many different approaches to this fascinating form of art-making.

The term Expressionism was first applied to the Parisian painting that followed Post-Impressionism at the turn of the 19th century. Throughout the 20th century, Expressionism was applied to various figurative and abstract movements, from the German Expressionists, to Picasso and the Cubists, to Abstract Expressionism, Art Informel, Bay Area Figuration, and Neo-Expressionism.

    Hi Terri. Yes, I saw the play and thought it was excellent. I think it's running for a few more weeks if you want to catch it.

    It was great seeing so many people at the opening. I'm an impressionist painter myself so I don't focus much on these themes. I liked the diverse mix of expressionist works of art. It seems like a lot of people drifted away around 7 after they called out the awards and started a talk about how to increase art in underserved areas of the city. I left around 7:30. Looking forward to the next meetup.

      I hit the wrong key on my IPhone by mistake. I was also told by 2 people that the event ended at 7 pm. I was disappointed, however I was glad to meet 2 very nice people from our group. Cornelia and Carol, hopefully we will have better luck next time :)

    @ Gloriana
    I arrived at approximately 7 pm, and was told after inquiring about meetup that she was not aware of such group, I decided to proceed anyway. I suppose having a Host on site makes all the difference, yes? Sorry I missed you too!

    Can anyone please guide me, or possibly give me a landmark to focus on when trying to locate the Gallery at the Horton Plaza? Any type of info is highly appreciated. Thank you!

      It is in the basement off the Broadway Circle entrance. There are steps down to the theater and gallery between Abercrombie & Fitch and the Levi's Store.

    Looking forward to it. I'll be curious to see how "contemporary expressionism" is defined.
