Water Colors

Thirsty? Have some water. Thirsty for culture? Have a look at some paintings about water at the Irvine Museum, the establishment dedicated to the preservation and display of California Impressionist paintings from 1890 to 1930. Their current exhibit, “All the Water That Will Ever Be, Is, Right Now,” depicts H2O in its three natural forms—liquid, solid and gas—displayed in works like Misha Askenazy’s paintings of rainstorms over the Hollywood Hills, Marion K. Wachtel’s paintings of the snow atop the Sierra Nevada mountains, and Granville Redmond’s pieces on local marshlands. If water is the fuel of life, then it makes sense that water also serves as the fuel of landscape art. Make sure you take in your recommended eight paintings a day.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Starts: Sept. 30. Continues through Jan. 17, 2008
