The Art of Painting in the 21st Century Conference





The Art of Painting in the 21st Century is an annual conference, in
its seventh year, and is geared towards nurturing dialog on
contemporary painting and the shared ideas that define current trends
in the field. Many painters work alone, an isolated process that
deprives the artist of thriving debate until the work is shown. This
year’s conference will feature the world renowned painters Richard C.
Whitten,Mark Van Proyen, Chester Arnold, Melissa Chandon and Richard
In an intimate setting, interact with top artists in a way not
possible elsewhere. UC Davis, home to artist Roy de Forest, Roland
Peterson, Wayne Thiebaud, and Robert Arneson, was instrumental in
defining a new direction for a uniquely West Coast style. Nowhere else
in the country will the participant be able to interact and discuss
the purity of painting in one place. Meet face-to-face with
distinguished artists you might only read about; see and hear what
makes them the top of their field. No other conference lets the
participants discuss and comment on modern painting with such inspired
knowledge and insight.
The conference’s goal is to gather artists from varying communities,
allowing for open interaction between young students and professionals
in the field, fostering the strong tradition of painting and culture
in the Northern California region.
