Painted Light: California Impressionist Paintings from the Gardena High School

Painted Light: California Impressionist Paintings from The Gardena High School/Los Angeles Unified School District Collection was the catalogue of a major assemblage of plein air paintings by many of California's greatest Impressionist painters, exhibited at the University Art Gallery of the California State University Dominguez Hills, and The Irvine Museum in 1999.

The exhibition was curated by Jean Stern, executive director of The Irvine Museum, who also wrote the catalogue essay and biographies of the artists. "These paintings are representative of one of the most remarkable and distinctive schools of regional American art," said Stern.
