Finally, “Jewel by the Bay“, a week-long paint-out locally! I was invited to participate in this Bay Area paint-out last year, but had to decline due to some last-minute travel. I’m 100% set for this one! It starts Monday, and includes about 30 nationally-known plein air artists, most local, many friends.
This is a typical “plein air” event competition, where a group of juried artists paint the same area for a week and hold a show at the end. This show beneftis the Frank Bette Art Center in Alameda. Check out my blog next week, and I should have daily postings. Here’s a run-down of events:
Artist’s paint in Alameda July 17 through July 20
Jewel by the Bay” Sunset Quick Draw, Thursday, July 19, 6-8PM at Towata Park ( 3315 Bridgeway Isle, Alameda, CA 94501) , near Harbor Bay Island bridge.
