The university and general public are invited to a reception at the Reynolds Gallery celebrating the exhibition of watercolor artist and beloved teacher Richard Yip who would be 100 this year. Over 35 original paintings on view.
Life’s Track: A Centenary Celebration of Richard Yip (1919 – 1981). Organized by the artist’s family and the University Curator, the show features work from the family collection and the university’s permanent art collection. The show explores four decades of Richard Yip’s paintings in the context of mid-20th-century ideas of Eastern and Western art and the artists of the “California Scene.” A beloved teacher at Pacific and beyond, Yip’s exuberant and approachable philosophy toward making art is on view in more than 35 works in watercolor, acrylic, and collage from the mid-1940s to the time of his death in 1981.
