"California Dreamin’" is an exclusive online exhibition highlighting the seminal role of the West Coast in the contemporary fiber art movement and the significant role of California artists in browngrotta arts’ exhibition history.

A forerunner in the field, browngrotta arts has been dedicated to researching, documenting, and raising awareness of modern craft through exhibitions and collectively recording the narrative of the movement through print catalogs for over 30 years, contributing in no small feat to preserving the continuity of the field. 

"California Dreamin’" highlights seven artists – Ed Rossbach, Katherine Westphal, Marion Hildebrandt, Judy Mulford, Deborah Valoma, Adela Akers, and Sylvia Seventy – who were the subject of three published catalogs. These artists continue to gain importance with the renewed recognition and reappraisal of modern craft.
