Gorgeous Spring Conditions for the Paint-Out Event on the McKenzie Reserve
This past Saturday, 17 of the 24 invitational artists created works for Sierra Foothill Conservancy's Plein Air Project on the glorious McKenzie Table Mountain Preserve in Eastern Fresno County. The Foothill Invitational Exhibition will take place in Fresno (location TBA) and the Embarcadero Invitational Exhibition at the spacious San Francisco office atrium of EDAW/AECOM. Both events are tentatively scheduled for the August of 2010, specific dates to be determined. Partial proceeds from sales at these events will benefit Sierra Foothill Conservancy.
For more information on Sierra Foothill Conservancy projects and the Plein Air paint-out events and auction visit www.sierrafoothill.org/pleinair.
The Ansel Adams Gallery supports the efforts of the Sierra Foothill Conservancy to help preserve open space in the neighboring foothills and is proud to be a sponsor of the Plein Air Auction in August.
Spring is a great time to visit the foothill region on your way to Yosemite. The orchards are blooming as well as many wildflowers! All three highways leading to Yosemite from the west side of the Sierra provide a taste of the California grasslands dotted with stately oaks.
