"Celebrating Benicia" focuses on the beauty of Benicia, with its richly diverse fabric of historic townscapes and sparkling waterfront scenes. Locals will recognize their favorite spots and visitors will be treated to an artistic snapshot of Benicia's many charms.

 

Nestled in the heart of historic downtown, the co-operative Benicia Plein Air Gallery has been in continuous operation since 2009. The Gallery is the only  artist-managed Gallery in Northern California featuring Plein Air paintings. It specializes in plein air paintings that explore the Bay Area, Northern California and beyond. "Plein air" is the art of painting outdoors, working quickly and boldly to capture a fleeting moment in time. Inspired by sunlight, vibrant color and luminous atmosphere, each artist expresses the spirit of place with a unique voice. This lively, contemporary, color-drenched style feels right at home in today's Benicia.

 

Benicia Plein Air Gallery is located at 307 First Street, Benicia CA 94510. Staffed by the artists, the gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information visit www.BeniciaPleinAir.com.
