In 2009, The Oakland Museum organized a large survey of Carnwath’s work, “Squeak Carnwath; Painting is no Ordinary Object.” Museum Director Lori Fogarty said, “This show confirms Carnwath’s groundbreaking artistry and stature as one of California’s leading contemporary artists.” The exhibition’s companion book, “Painting Is No Ordinary Object,” is a 160-page retrospective of Carnwath’s career.
