We’re proud to host the California Central Coast Pastel Society for our exhibit “Luminous Expressions”.

“Our primary objective is to bring soft pastel to the forefront as a fine art medium. Since we live and work in one of the most beautiful parts of California, it’s not hard to find inspiration here. 

We share and enlighten others about pastel art through annual exhibitions, painting demonstrations and classes, field trips and online learning, as well as workshops with nationally known and local artists.”

Using science to solve a 1,300-year-old art mystery

“The Cincinnati Art Museum turned to a scientist at the University of Cincinnati for help solving a mystery 1,300 years in the making.

The museum’s Chinese dancing horse sculpture is so realistic that the fiery steed seems ready to gallop off its pedestal. But East Asian art curator Hou-mei Sung questioned the authenticity of a decorative tassel on the terracotta horse’s forehead that resembles the horn of a mythological unicorn.

The museum reached out to UC College of Arts and Sciences assistant professor of chemistry Pietro Strobbia for help to determine if the tassel was original to the work.”
