A new exhbition, Herb Turner: Realist/Idealist, opens at the Oceanside Museum of Art on March 10 with an opening reception (on March 9 between 5-7pm). Modernist building designer Herb Turner was also an accomplished painter and sculptor who upheld the ideals of classical art and the old masters while incorporating modern concerns and the world around him. He studied in New York under Robert Brackman and Naum Los before moving to Del Mar where he served as an apprentice to John Lloyd Wright. Turner won numerous awards for his art over his many decades of creative output. As an architect he completed dozens of stunning residential and commercial structures and was a true visionary who found ways to integrate architecture with its environment long before the “green” movement was established. The Oceanside Museum of Art will exhibit Turner’s paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and architectural models through May 19. Learn more HERE.
