The University of San Diego hosts four fine art viewing galleries. I visited the only two open on my visit, which are located in Founders Hall and noted as the Hoehm Galleries, The first gallery show titled “American Art from the Pacific Northwest” and the second was the work of artist “Ruth Echstein, Topographies”

American Art from the Pacific Northwest 1860-1915. The first thing to interest me was how most of the artists had their roots in the eastern United States.

In my total visit, the first and most interesting work I saw was a full body charcoal sketch of Claude Monet 1890 by Theodore Robertson who he had earlier meet in Europe 1884 while there in study.

Also viewed the work of John la farce work Roses 1880 who is best know for his murals,

The work Rises 1876 watercolor by Hrelandenry Farrer, William Trost Richards untitled 1880. Winslow Homer Fly Fishing Saranac Lake 1889, two bronze relief’s’ by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Dublin Ireland and Mary Cassata of Philadelphia The Banjo Lesson 1893 dry point.

The second gallery with the work of Ruth Eckstein Topographical produced 24 mostly woodcut work. Since I am, also a printmaker I was particular intrigued by her work. Some of the prints included were Dark Cliff, Gateway to Memory, Cape Cod Summer, Kommos: the inner court and Kommos: the royal court II all dating the early 1970s. The single exception screen print Greek Island Greek Sun 1972 was also on display.
