Legendary Milford Zornes Artwork Exhibited Through April in Sunset Beach Gallery


By Chris MacDonald, Writer/Photographer, The Local News

At the Anderson Art Gallery in Sunset Beach a Reception was held recently to honor the late Legendary Painter Milford Zornes’ 103rd Birthday. He died three years ago, shortly after putting on a Painting Demonstration at the Pasadena Museum of California Art just after he turned 100. (Imagine that!).

The artwork from this American Master, one of the founders of the California style of Watercolor Painting, is impressive–from portraits of women to rural scenes to the Avalon Ballroom on Catalina Island. An appropriate tribute and paintings from the modest man, who some say created more watercolor art than anyone else, is also featured in the acclaimed book, “Gold Rush Glimpses III,” available at the gallery or at www.billandersonartgallery.com.

Milford’s work has been featured in The White House, Library of Congress, National Museum of Art and Smithsonian. This new exhibit is in coordination with The CCAA Museum’s Annual Exhibition Honoring Milford’s Birthday.

Bill Anderson, owner of Anderson Art Gallery, said, “It’s our privilege to exhibit this World Class Master Artist’s Drawings, Paintings and Printmaking. It has been my absolute joy to have painted with him for more than 15 years. Milford was so prolific, he even was working on a painting right before he passed away.”

You can also see the works of Bill Anderson, Raul Anguiano, Henry Fukuhara, Howard Hitchcock and Bea Riley at the gallery as well.
