Bayside Park residents delighted in an afternoon that could easily have been at a Parisian artist’s salon.

The environment of this unique gallery was indeed like a salon, with art everywhere, comfortable couches and chairs to relax in, and the Salon staff graciously providing cookies and tea for our enjoyment. We were able to view the range of Cal’s work, from a young artist painting landscapes and later exploring Abstract Expressionism, to his work during his teaching years at the California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute), and his later work of modern figures and graphic art for the San Francisco Ballet. The Lost Art Salon typically arranges for collections of art from the families of deceased artists who have a made a significant contribution in the field of public or private art, so this was an especially special treat for all of us to be able to see the art and hear from the artist himself!
