It was great to see many of you at last Saturday’s Plein Air Day. The event, which attracted several hundred attendees, celebrated the opening of our newest exhibition at the California Art Club Gallery at The Old Mill as well as the practice of painting outdoors. In particular, I enjoyed watching budding artists of all ages join CAC artists in capturing imagery of the historic site that houses our gallery. My gratitude goes to Christopher and Jennifer Burgan, co-chairs of the San Gabriel/Pomona Valley Chapter, and Chuck Kovacic, chair of the Los Angeles Chapter, for their invaluable assistance in making this event a great success.
Later this month, we will have another opportunity to gather – at our first online Learn & Mingle Membership Meeting. As our membership continues to grow beyond geographic boundaries, we recognized the need to make these meetings accessible to all members. I am looking forward to spotlighting the winners of our Excellence in Traditional Fine Art Competition, which will certainly be an inspiring discussion.
