Andrée M. Mahoney: Spirit Voyager
On view through April 23, 2023
Claremont Lewis Museum of Art
The Claremont Lewis Museum of Art’s exhibition “Andrée M. Mahoney: Spirit Voyager” celebrates the artist’s seventy-year exploration of the richness of life through mixed-media painting and ceramic sculpture. A visual storyteller on a lifelong, transcendental quest to transform spirit into matter, Mahoney seeks to strike a balance between color and form, intuition and meaning.
Mahoney came to Claremont in 1950 to study art at Scripps College and honed her skills in the Millard Sheets Studio. She later earned her M.Ed and MFA from Claremont Graduate University in the 1960s. Thereafter, Mahoney served as a Professor of Art at Chaffey College for more than 30 years.
The Claremont Lewis Museum of Art is located in the historic Claremont Depot at 200 West First Street next to the Metrolink Station.
