Lasting Impressions-Pedro de Lemos

April 30 - September 28, 2015


The Monterey Museum of Art is presenting Lasting Impressions-Pedro de Lemos, the first exhibition to celebrate one of the region's most important artists who championed diverse styles, methods, and materials during the Arts and Crafts Movement in California. A Renaissance man and ambitious designer at heart, Pedro Joseph de Lemos (1882-1954) was a preeminent printmaker who also excelled in the media of painting, drawing, metal, leather, and cement.

Winning awards for his innovations in printmaking, his proficiency extended from wood engravings and color block prints to lithography and intaglio methods such as drypoint, mezzotints, soft-ground etchings and aquatints -- the last of which garnered an honorable mention in the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition in San Francisco.

Organized by the Monterey Museum of Art with guest curators Robert W. Edwards, Ph.D., and Julianne Burton-Carvajal, Ph.D. This exhibition includes prints, oil paintings, watercolor, drawings, calligraphy, pottery, leather, and cement work, and ephemera with interactive educational spaces. The Museum is proud to present this retrospective of an artist and educator whose legacy has bridges past with the present.

This exhibition is generously supported by Paula and Terry Trotter, Trotter Galleries, Carmel and Pacific Grove, with additional support from Glenn Gobel Custom Frames, Pacific Grove.
