5 New Artists Exhibition: Alex Egan, Matt Lifson, Jacob Melchi

Nov 22, 2013
Spotlight Category: Alumni

5 New Artists

Three out of the five artists in the California Heritage Museum's major fall exhibition, 5 New Artists On The Map are recent Otis grads. Alex Egan and Jacob Melchi received their MFAs in 2013, and Matt Lifson earned his in 2012. The exhibition, which runs through Feb. 23, 2013, was curated by internationally renowned artist Guy Dill. All five young artists are painters, though their work ranges from abstract to narrative to portraits.

The catalogue includes interviews with the curator and artists, and photographs of each artist by Jeff McLane.

The exhibition was funded, in part, by grants from The Wells Fargo Foundation, The LLWW Foundation, Copyland Los Angeles, the City of Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Department, Tom and Mary Ann Hays, Dawson Design, Pamela Singleton, Helen and L. O. Harding, DLR Electric, Dermot H. McQuarrie, The Victorian/Calamigos Ranch, Grand American Inc., as well as generous corporate, foundation and private individual donations.
