Artist Reception

Mar 16 2019
Venue: Benicia Plein Air Gallery, 307 First Street, Benicia

 

 

 

The public is invited to a reception for Benicia Plein Air Gallery featured artist of the month, Joanne M. Gustilo, on Saturday, March 16, fro 3 to 5 p.m.

 

Watercolorist Joanne M. Gustilo's exhibit, "Coastal Reflections", runs March 7 through 31.

 

Known for her luminous watercolors that blend sensitive detail with lively looseness, Joanne feels a special connection with the Northern California coastline. She loves painting harbors and boats, and is fascinated by coastal scenes. "I can feel the sea calling," she says. "I love to paint the waves crashing and the stillness and reflections of the boats in water." In true plein air spirit, she hopes to capture a moment, a stillness, a certain time of day. Her "Coastal Reflections" collection feels right at home in Benicia Plein Air Gallery, just steps away from Benicia's scenic waterfront. To learn more about Joanne and see her work visit www.joanne.gustilo.com.

 

Also on exhibit is a fresh new collection of plein air paintings by all 13 of the gallery's artists showcasing a colorful variety of media and styles. 

 

Benicia Plein Air Gallery is located at 307 First Street in the heart of historic downtown Benicia. Staffed by the artists, the gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information visit www.beniciapleinair.com.
