Curator: Joe Baker, PVAC Executive Director
Yassin and Norris Galleries
The Palos Verdes Art Center/Beverly G. Alpay
Center for Arts Education presents Keith Crown
— The California Paintings, highlighting the artist’s production during his years in Southern
Coastal scenes in oil, casein and watercolors of Manhattan Beach Pier, Redondo Beach,
Palos Verdes Peninsula, LAX, Rosecrans Avenue,
Standard Oil Refinery, (1950–1982), all stand
as evidence of a rigorous work ethic. Crown
drew inspiration from California’s beach cities, oil
refineries, airports, congested piers, coastal sage
scrub, and rolling seas. Everywhere he painted,
Crown worked on-site outdoors from direct observation, maintaining that commitment throughout
his 70 years of painting.
Crown studied at The School of The Art
Institute of Chicago and taught painting and
drawing at the University of Southern California
Roski School of Fine Arts from 1946 to 1983.
The artist was a key figure in bringing post-war
modernism to Southern California. More than 40
works are exhibited in the galleries, many for the
first time.
Peter Plagens, a long-time art critic for
Newsweek and a former student of Crown’s, said
in a review for Artforum, 1970, “Crown bullies
through the natural restrictions on intensity and
the traditional overtones of his medium and pulls
off some of the best small paintings in my direct

Walker Gallery
“Spectacular End of Day,” oil on panel, 20"x24"
The Palos Verdes Art Center/Beverly G. Alpay Center for Arts
Education presents Don Crocker: Colors of Twilight. The paintings reflect the ambiguous conditions of light just before
nightfall. This exhibition is the first comprehensive survey
of the artist’s work. The paintings reveal the artist’s personal
and intimate relationship to the landscape of Palos Verdes
Peninsula and beyond. After a career lasting more than 40
years as a lawyer, Crocker took up plein air painting in 2000.
Crocker was inspired by a family camping trip to Anacapa
Island, one of California’s Channel Islands, and sought to capture the memories of this experience using paint from a basic
10 color acrylic paint set. From this experience, the artist’s
painting career was born. More than 35 works will be shown
in a stunning installation designed by artist Doug Meyer.
Exhibition Catalogue
The exhibition is accompanied by a 68-page catalogue, Don
Crocker: Colors of Twilight, published by the Palos Verdes Art
Center. Published on the occasion of this exhibition and produced in collaboration with the artist, the catalogue is filled
with a selection of recent work and rare photographs of the
artist and his family. Illustrating a particularly tender story of
the artist’s passion and relationship to land as subject, it is
replete with fascinating discoveries of the spirit of plein air
painting. The catalogue will be available to purchase at $19
per catalogue; PVAC members, $14.
Exhbition artwork available for purchase.
