Opening in the East
Gallery on February 25 is Fresh Paint, a group show by
Bay Area Contemporary Plein Air Circle (BACPAC), a group of artists
dedicated to the pursuit of painting outdoors. Each artist pursues
his or her own development and artistic goals, yet all are united
by a deep reverence for nature, a commitment to the artistic expression
of representational painting, and the pursuit of a style derived
from the Russian Impressionists, the Barbizon School, and the California
Plein Air School. Some members of this group have painted together
since 1992. Some paint together regularly three times a week.
Exhibiting in “Fresh Paint” are Selora Albin, Randy Blasqez, Joyce Converse, Brigitte Curt, Marcia Enns, Kim Holl, Susan Lawson, Karen Leoni, Morning Nichols, Jim Smyth, Mary Stahl, Linda Stanley, Alice Weil, Karen White, and Tonya Zenin. Members of BACPAC have exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the Bay Area. Last spring six members were included in a show at Filoli Center in Woodside, California.
Sanchez Art Center
is located at 1220-B Linda Mar Blvd., Pacifica, CA, 1.5 miles east
of Highway 1, in the building with the colorful mural. Following
the February 25 opening from 7 to 9 pm, galleries will be open Friday,
Saturday, and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm, through March 27.
