May 21 - June 24, 2022
Bonita Museum & Cultural Center

Lumière de California celebrates the unique light of California as expressed through plein air painting. Forty-three artworks in the exhibition feature the essence of morning light, afternoon sun, as well as twilight, as sky, water and mountains interact to express the beauty of California.

The Bonita Museum & Cultural Center (BMCC) is located in South Bay San Diego along the Sweetwater River. From the mountains to the bay, the Sweetwater valley has been an ideal historic location for plein air painting. Plein air painter Alfred Mitchell started the Chula Vista Art Guild seventy six years ago to document the flora and fauna of South Bay San Diego.

An opening reception is planned for Saturday, May 21, 2022 between 4:30 – 7:00 p.m. at the Bonita Museum & Cultural Center, 4355 Bonita Road, Bonita, CA 91902.

All artwork is available for acquisition.
