The public is invited to walk (don’t run) through the library and see the fine quality artwork that will be on display.
This year’s distinguished juror, Mr. Tom Brown, of Orange County, will select all artwork in the show. Brown is a third generation artist. Originally from the Midwest, he began a successful art career in advertising. During that time he also began selling paintings in galleries and left advertising to pursue fine art full time when his first one-man show in Chicago was a virtual sellout. He is a former president of the Orange Art Association and past member of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association and Southern California Plein Air Painters Association.
The artists represented in the show will be mostly local residents. Many have established noteworthy reputations for highly creative styles and subject matter – landscapes, still-life and portraits – in a variety of media including watercolors, oil and acrylic paintings, drawings, pastel, photography and mixed media artwork. Much of the artwork on display will be available for sale. Last year, Mr. James Reale won “Best of Show” for his oil painting “Preserving the Flag”.
