“Stan Cline’s Nostalgia Gallery” Opening Reception (10/21/17)

The Museum of the San Fernando Valley’s first solo artist exhibition features longtime Chatsworth resident and painter - Stan Cline. For the past 40 years, Cline has been rekindling memories of the past with his art.

Early in his life, he realized that neighborhoods were constantly changing and evolving. Fueled by his civic pride and fear that everything was disappearing, he embarked on a personal journey to preserve the landmarks by painting popular locations.

The “Stan Cline's Nostalgia Gallery” exhibiting now through January 31, 2018 at The Museum of the San Fernando Valley consists of 15 original acrylic paintings including the “Bob’s Big Boy, Toluca Lake 1965,” “Pacific Electric Trolley Station, Burbank 1941, “Bob’s Big Boy Van Nuys 1961,” and “SP Daylight, Stone Point Chatsworth, 1950.”  









Cline's paintings have been showcased on many radio and television shows including "The Everywhere Show," NBC's "Sunday Show," ABC7's "The AM Show," KHJ-TV's "Midmorning LA," "Mr Blackwell Show," KCRW's "Ruth Mills Show," and KJOI's "Sunday Forum." He was also featured in articles for the Los Angeles Daily News and the LA Times.

Opening reception will be on Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 5:00 - 7:00 pm.

All are welcomed to meet the artist during the opening and walk down memory lane. Cline will be signing any prints purchased at The Museum during the opening as well.

Tom Petty, Rock Legend, Dead at 66

Tom Petty, the rocker best known as the front man of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, is dead at 66.


The legendary musician suffered a full cardiac arrest and was found unconscious and not breathing in his Malibu home Sunday night. He was taken to UCLA Santa Monica Hospital and put on life support.

Petty rose to fame in the 1970s with his band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The group put out several hits, including "American Girl," "Free Fallin'," "Breakdown," "Listen to Her Heart" and more. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

For more on Tom Petty, click HERE for Rolling Stone Magazine overview.




Though Petty and his band debuted their first self-titled record in 1976, they continued to perform over the past four decades. Petty played his last show last Monday, performing three sold-out shows at the Hollywood Bowl to conclude their 40th anniversary tour. The band wrote on their website that the tour included 53 shows in 24 states.

He lived in Encino for some time. In 1987, when Petty and his family were eating breakfast and an arsonist lit the wooden staircase on fire. Almost everything burned down, except for the basement recording studio.
