Athenaeum Art Anthology

Years-in-the-making, the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library’s “Selections from the Permanent Collection,” is a hard-covered catalog of the 40 artists who have had a solo exhibition in the Joseph Clayes III Gallery since 1990, with a piece in the permanent collection.

In a way, it’s a follow-up to the 1988 “San Diego Artists,” by Perine, Andrea and Dijkstra, which was the first history of San Diego art and artists.

The 126-page book salutes such luminaries as Roman de Salvo, Manny Farber, Anne Labovitz, Kim MacConnel, Zandra Rhodes, Italo Scango, Viviana Lonbrozo, Luc Leestemaker and Joyce Cutler-Shaw, among others. It includes an introduction by Athenauem Execuive Director Erika Torri, catalog entries by Cornelia Feye, and an essay by Lucia Sanroman. The book is priced at  $25 for Athenaeum members; $30 for nonmembers, and available at the library or by phone (858) 454-5872.
