Art in Nature: Legacy of the Land
The Art in Nature Alliance, a partnership of the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, Plein-Air Painters of America, and the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, presents Art in Nature: Legacy of the Land, featuring an exhibition and sale of work by the Plein-air Painters of America. The exhibition of more than 120 paintings by 20 PAPA members will be held at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido through May 3. Twenty PAPA members painted for several days prior to the opening reception on March 21. Their “wet-paintings,” along with studio works created from earlier visits, document a variety of coastal, rural, and urban scenes along the 55-mile San Dieguito River Valley watershed. The opening gala included a lecture on collecting art by Jean Stern, author of California Light (2009) and director of the Irvine Museum, followed by an art sale.
