Altered Worlds:
Annual Artists of MarinMOCA Exhibition

January 14 – March 5, 2023

Juried by Chester Arnold, Altered Worlds features 67 MarinMOCA member artists. Over his 50-year career, Sonoma-based painter Chester Arnold has been known for his observations capturing a world increasingly altered and unrecognizable. This exhibition takes Arnold’s influential work as a point of departure and invites a wide range of approaches that explore the significant environmental and emotional shifts that we experience every day.
 
“The general museum-going public is still looking for art that is beautiful, that they can hang on the wall. But I feel painting could be more than that. It should raise questions and raise the hairs on the back of your neck. It can be used to explore issues that are more troubling than reassuring ...We become so bound up in what we’re doing that we cease to see the world objectively, and I think that’s one of the great values that art can have, that nature can have, that moments alone can have,” says Chester Arnold.

About Chester Arnold. (b.1952) Chester Arnold is a well-known art teacher and nationally exhibited painter whose works explore the contemporary landscape. His compositions often present skewed linear perspectives that place the viewer at a remove, above and/or beyond an unfolding narrative. His work is in the public collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Crocker Art Museum, Nevada Museum of Art, di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, Tacoma Museum of Art, SFMOMA, and San Jose Museum of Art. In 2022, he was the subject of a mid-career survey exhibition at the Fresno Art Museum. Chester Arnold is represented by Catharine Clark Gallery.
