SHOW TITLE : Hungry For Art
DATES OF SHOW: March 8 through April 1, 2018
RECEPTION DATE AND TIME: Sunday, March 18, 3 to 5 pm
The new feature show, “Hungry for Art” at Benicia Plein Air gallery documents the journey of artist, Dixie Mohan, from the 1960’s Berkeley art landscape to the last 12 years painting with Benicia Plein Air painters group, aka Da Group. “I am looking back in this show, in order to move forward. I feel like the topography of the California landscape is etched in my soul from a lifetime of hiking, exploration, and art. The way I express that is changing, the new exploration is on the canvas.”
The title “Hungry for Art” comes because of the artist’s concerns about hunger in the midst of plenty in our community. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of works from the feature show are being donated to the FoodBank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties, and a FoodBank can will be located in the gallery for the duration of the show. All visitors are encouraged to bring in a can or package of a staple food to the gallery. The reception is Sunday, March 18, 3 to 5 pm.
LOCATION: Benicia Plein Air Gallery, 307 First Street, Benicia is open Thursday through Sundays, Noon to 6 pm.
