A Fullerton Arboretum art exhibition extending through May 21 includes works by students from Anaheim, Buena Park and Huntington Beach.
“Seasons of the Arboretum: A Watercolor Exhibition” is now on display in the Fullerton Arboretum on the campus of Cal State Fullerton campus through May 21.
The exhibit of landscape paintings is open to the public free of charge in the OC Agricultural & Nikkei Heritage Museum on the grounds of the Fullerton Arboretum.
An artists reception is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, April 30, featuring live music and light refreshments.
The diverse group of Southland artists whose works are being exhibited are students in watercolor classes taught by Lawrence T. Yun, professor of art.
Each semester, he brings his students to the 26-acre preserve on campus to draw inspiration from the plant collection and “beautiful scenes found only here at the Fullerton Arboretum,” he said. “This urban oasis provides an opportunity for students to experience nature and to study its complex beauty,” he added.
Professor Yun is a watercolor artist with multiple solo exhibits and entertainment credits in his background. He will be among those greeting reception attendees.
The Fullerton Arboretum is on the northeast corner of the campus. Free parking is available in the unpaved parking lot adjacent to the preserve at 1900 Associated Rd., off Yorba Linda Blvd. in Fullerton.
The museum is open weekends from noon to 4 p.m. and also by appointment during weekday afternoons. Entrance is free, though donations from the public are welcome.
