SAN DIEGO DREAMING
February 28-June 21, 2015
Curated By Malcolm Warner and Kay Colvin
In Groves Auditorium and L Street Gallery
In complementary support to California Dreaming: An International Portrait of Southern California, OMA and L Street Fine Art Gallery (located in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter) are proud to partner and present San Diego Dreaming at both venues. An outgrowth of the California Dreaming jurying process, the joint San Diego Dreaming exhibitions focus on the San Diego arts community and its highly individualized interpretation of the “California Dream”. This exhibition at OMA includes 40 prominent and talented San Diego-based artists, as juried by Malcolm Warner, Executive Director of the Laguna Art Museum. OMA Executive Director, Daniel Foster states “Although initially unanticipated, it became glaringly obvious in the jurying process of the California Dreaming exhibition in 2014 that a complimentary exhibition exclusively focused on talented San Diego artists would be an enriching extension of this popular theme. These two shows reflect OMA’s mission to produce outstanding and relevant exhibitions focused primarily on San Diego and Southern California artists and audiences.”
OMA is honored to partner with Kay Colvin, Director of the L Street Fine Art Gallery, on the San Diego Dreaming exhibition. The exhibition at L Street Fine Art Gallery features 30 San Diego artists. Colvin is the original visionary project coordinator for OMA’s traveling exhibition California Dreaming that, outside of OMA’s galleries, has traveled to Italy’s Palazzo della Provincia di Frosinone and will be on display at the Riverside Art Museum in late spring 2015. OMA sincerely thanks Malcolm Warner for his insightful and scholarly selection of artworks for this exhibition. OMA is thankful to jurors Daniel Foster, Peter Frank, and Drew Oberjuerge, as well as the expert project coordination of Kay Colvin.
