Helen Rae, and the Artists of Tierra del Sol, bring their unique vision to the Claremont Museum of Art!
Thirty years ago, a group of visionary artists from Tierra del Sol opened the doors of the First Street Gallery Art Center in Claremont. Since then, Tierra, and its hundreds of trailblazing artists, have been in the vanguard, forging professional pathways, while advancing the cause of inclusivity in the art world.
The Claremont Museum of Art exhibition Vanguard: Origins of Tierra del Sol Arts in Claremont featuring Helen Rae, co-curated by Rebecca Hamm and Paige Wery, represents 15 artists from the Claremont years whose remarkable creative expressions have influenced and enriched contemporary art in Southern California and beyond.
Helen Rae’s drawings will be featured in the Museum’s main gallery, while the atrium will feature works in various media by Anthony Barnes, John Boyer, Jose Del Rio, Mary Lou Dimsdale, Leon Fuller, Michael LeVell, Jackie Marsh, John Maull, Dru McKenzie, John Peterson, Hugo Rocha, Vicente Siso, Isabel Vartanian and Joe Zaldivar, all of whom work or have worked with the Tierra del Sol studios.
