The Monterey Museum of Art presents an extensive exhibition of one of the region’s iconic painters: Armin Hansen. Hansen made a special subject of fishermen and others who worked on the ocean. Working in a style influenced by German Expressionism, he used bright colors and let his brush strokes show. He was among the founders of the Carmel Art Association and by the 1920s was widely respected by California’s artists. Learn more about the exhibit at montereyart.org.
