Come see the Artist Pavilion transformed at the opening reception for resident artist Squeak Carnwath, an event exclusively for members with the artist present. RSVP by clicking here.

Based in Oakland, Squeak Carnwath draws upon the philosophical and mundane experiences of daily life in her paintings and prints, which can be identified by lush fields of color combined with text, patterns, and identifiable images. She has received numerous awards including the Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art (SECA) Award from San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, two Individual Artist Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, a Guggenheim Fellowship and the Award for Individual Artists from the Flintridge Foundation. Carnwath is Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley.

The opening reception features an exhibition of Squeak's artwork in the Lux Artist Pavilion, hosted valet and light refreshments. The Lux Store, stocked with one-of-a-kind creations handmade by San Diego designers and artisans, will be open throughout the evening. Lux members always enjoy 10% off all store items.
