Some summer art for you: The Huntington Library features three dozen works by the Regionalist artist Roger Medearis.
In his restarted art career, Medearis turned to his adopted environs, and the exhibition includes such paintings as “The Beach,” a lively scene of sunbathers, surfers and even a few swimmers crowding a highly stylized Pacific cove, and “Home in the San Gabriels” (1996), showing houses set against the mass of the San Gabriel Mountains. “He was pretty attached to the landscape, and to the change of light,” Betty says. “People have said his work is surreal.”
