Companion shows at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Pasadena Museum of California Art celebrate the styles that developed in California in the first half of the 20th century. The SBMA show (through June 16, 2013) focuses on plein air artists such as Marion Kavanaugh Wachtel and Colin Campbell Cooper. Phil Dike (“Holiday,” above) and other California Scene painters are exhibited at the PMCA through July 28, 2013.
