Contemporary Landscape — Earth, wind and fire on display at MarinMOCA

Contemporary Landscape

Presented by Bank of Marin

Marin Museum of Contemporary Art presents “Contemporary Landscape,” an exhibit of work by artists from across the nation.

Juror Chester Arnold chose the work while evacuated from his home during the recent North Bay fires, so the viewer can expect to see work that shows the devastation wrought by nature and man on our environment. From the turbulence of a clearing sky to the catastrophic effects of climate change, this exhibit investigates the impact nature has on us, and vice versa.

Says Arnold: “The general museum-going public is still looking for art that is beautiful . . . . But I feel painting could be more than that. It should raise questions; raise the hairs on the back of your neck. It can be used to explore issues that are more troubling than reassuring. If one would just stop and ask ‘why would anyone do something like this?’ It would be satisfying.” We invite the public to experience “earth, wind and fire,” on display at this transformational exhibit.

About the Juror: Chester Arnold is an instructor at College of Marin and nationally exhibited painter whose works explore the contemporary landscape. He is represented by the Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco.


The museum is free to the public and we rely on donations, memberships, and corporate sponsorships to accomplish our mission to provide contemporary art, art education, and artistic opportunities for Marin County.

MarinMOCA does not receive regular city, county, state, or federal funding to keep its doors open.
