The works of 10 nationally recognized plein air artists will be featured Oct. 22 at the Catalina Island Conservancy’s 7th Annual Catalina: The Wild Side Art Show, an event that supports the Conservancy’s conservation, education and recreation programs. The artists each spent time on Catalina creating new works that feature the Island’s rugged wildlands, Avalon and Two Harbors in the plein air style, which means painting nature while in nature. The artists whose works will be on display and available for purchase are Cindy Baron, Brian Blood, Don Demers, Kathleen Dunphy, Debra Huse, Laurie Kersey, Kim Lordier, Michael Obermeyer, Ron Rencher and Brian Stewart. “In their paintings, these award-winning artists capture the beauty of the Island and the work the Conservancy has done to restore and protect Catalina,” said Tony Budrovich, Conservancy president and CEO. “Catalina: The Wild Side Art Show is a great opportunity to meet the artists, purchase their portraits of Catalina’s wildlands and support the Conservancy.” In addition to helping to fund the Conservancy’s programs, proceeds from the art show also support the Conservancy’s permanent collection of plein air art that documents the organization’s conservation efforts and progress in habitat restoration. Many of the paintings acquired during previous shows are on display for the public in the Conservancy’s Nature Center in Avalon Canyon.
