Renaissance woman and Newport Beach resident Ruth Westphal, 80, is a self-titled, life-long "gallery hopper. " Though her professional trajectory placed her in a teaching career and at the helm of her own successful business, her passion for art has carved out a significant place in her life. The results of her artistic investment went on to enrich countless art history projects and helped raise the bar for chronicling artists and their work. Westphal compiled three books on California artists in the '80s and '90s that laid the groundwork for a comprehensive examination of early California Impressionism and scene painting.

From fine art to architecture, landscape and interior design, photography, music, dance, drama and film, the arts are alive in all forms in the Newport Beach Public Library's new Arts Collection. The $100,000 compilation of 2,000 books, videos and CDs includes such stunning overview volumes as 'Art Past Art Present,' an art history survey emphasizing the continuum of human creativity and expression from all of the world's cultures. More than 700 illustrations complement the chronological narrative covering historical, social and cultural foundations for prehistoric through 20th century art. Architectural topics are well represented, from volumes on specific structures to works about significant movements.

A local instructor blends lessons in art history and drawing technique, allowing her students to create their own styles.Gigi Valdes doesn't just teach students at Harbor View Elementary School to draw like classic artists. She also encourages them to think like the masters. Throughout the school year, Valdes leads after-school art classes for first- through sixth-graders, with each session lasting six weeks. During the sessions, the students look at works by three different artists and learn to produce works in their styles -- sometimes with other media included to aid the process.

Betty Turnbull, longtime resident of Newport Beach, passed away Wednesday, October 20, 2010.  Betty was an important influence in the visual arts of California as the first curator of exhibitions for the Newport Harbor Art Museum (now the Orange County Museum of Art) and as a partner in the TLK Gallery in Costa Mesa.             Born Betty Jean Hainey into a vaudeville family in 1924, Betty started in show business performing on stage with the Olsen & Johnson comedy team at age four; in the years 1935-43 she appeared in numerous films with stars such as Shirley Temple and Roy Rogers and on radio theatre programs.

Think of those restaurant chains that deliberately keep their menus simple - Chipotle, say, or In-N-Out Burger. Then apply that approach to the world of art, and you might have something akin to the Irvine Museum. The small venue, which takes up part of an office building at 18881 Von Karman Ave., restricts itself to a single field: California paintings from approximately 1875 to 1950 that capture the sprawling landscape of a state that developers had only begun to touch. To preserve that part of California's art history, the museum draws on its own stock, as well as on the private collections of Irvine family matriarch Joan Irvine Smith and her son, museum President James Irvine Swinden.

It's 3 p.m. in New York City and Peter Max is on his cellphone sitting in his car in afternoon traffic. The buzz and rush of Manhattan serve as a backdrop to this telephone interview with an artist, who, more than any other, has become the visual interpreter of the Love Generation. Max, born in Berlin in 1937 at the dawn of Hitler's rise, escaped the chaos of World War II in Europe and was raised in Shanghai. His father Jacob ran a department store. Today, his art and related creative and commercial products might be found in department stores, as well as galleries, gift shops and Internet sites.
