About the Artist:
Larry Cannon is a watercolor artist whose work is focused primarily on the landscapes and seascapes of California and the American West. Many of his landscapes are painted en plein air where the subtleties of light and color are inspirations for a unique sense of place and moment.
His work has been exhibited in mixed media exhibitions at the San Diego Museum of Art, USC Fisher Museum of Art (Los Angeles), Autry Museum of the American West (Los Angeles), Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art (Malibu), Laguna Museum of Art (Laguna Beach), Oceanside Museum of Art, Bennington Center for the Arts (VT), Haggin Museum of Art, Santa Paula Museum of Art, Muscarelle Museum of Art (Williamsburg VA), Saint Mary’s Museum of Art, Pasadena Museum of History, and in multiple exhibits at the Triton Museum of Art and the Napa Valley Museum.
Larry has a strong love for plein air painting–the practice of painting outdoors and completing a painting in a relative short period of time. He has been selected on numerous occasions to participate in prestigious plein air painting events including those in Laguna Beach, Sonoma Valley, Carmel, Telluride, Borrego Springs, Estes Park, and Sedona. And, he has participated in many recent annual Best of Plein Air exhibitions sponsored by the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (LPAPA).
He also considers himself fortunate to have been included in other well-respected art exhibitions including the California Art Club’s Annual Gold Medal Exhibitions, , the Laumeister Fine Art Competition, Sausalito Art Festival, Napa Valley Art Festival, Marin Art Festival, and the Art Essex Gallery in Essex, CT.
Larry is self-taught as an artist following Bachelor and Masters of Architecture degrees from the University of Illinois and a distinguished architectural and urban planning career in San Francisco as a principal partner in the firms of Wurster, Bernardi & Emmons and the Cannon Design Group.
