Dear Greetings!,
We would like to offer our Congratulations to Ralph Oberg, winner of the Gold Medal Award for best painting in California Art Club’s 103rd Gold Medal Member’s Exhibition!  The exhibition was held at the Autry National Center in Los Angeles, March 30th-April 20th. The reputable California Art Club is one of the largest, and oldest art organizations in the country.  Ralph Oberg was invited to be a Signature Member last year, elected by a board and panel of his peers.  Of 160 artists in the show, Ralph’s 42″ x 42″ Ice Fall was chosen as the best painting through artists’ choice, and subsequently sold!
Ralph continues to display his tremendous value as an artist, and this award is a demonstration that premiere Colorado artists are as good as any in the country.  We believe in the quality of Ralph’s art work so much, that the gallery is printing it’s first artist catalog- exclusively featuring his paintings.  Give us a call to receive your copy this summer!  We carry several small paintings by Ralph Oberg, as well as a handful of stunning larger paintings.  View them here.
