In celebration of the centennial of the founding of the Bauhaus school, Sullivan Goss, An American Gallery, is presenting “California Bauhaus: Influence and Adaptation,” an exhibition exploring the connection of a foundational German art school to the art of California. It will be on display through Nov. 25 at the gallery, 11 E. Anapamu St.One hundred years ago, the Staatliches Bauhaus was formed in the city of Weimar, Germany. More commonly referred to simply as the Bauhaus, it has since been written about as “the most influential art school of the twentieth century.” In 1933, the school was shuttered by the Nazi regime who considered it an outpost for communism and intellectual elitism. In response, many of the faculty’s leading lights left for America as did any number of its students. Some of them ended up in California.
Artists included in the exhibition are Anders Aldrin, Hebert Bayer, Ken Bortolazzo, Werner Drewes, Jules Angel, Oskar Fischinger, Sidney Gordin, Emil Kosa, Jr., Peter Krasnow, Dan Lutz, Angela Perko, Ron Robertson, Rudolph Schindler, Elise Seeds, June Wayne, Kem Weber and Emerson Woelffer.
