The La Jolla Riford Library will celebrate the opening of its fifth anniversary California Plein Air and Studio Landscape Show with a free, public reception 2-4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 18 at the library, 7555 Draper Ave.
Fifteen artists have been invited to exhibit works that showcase the magnificence of California's land and seascape. All are award-winners and leaders in their genre. Carolyn Hesse Low's work was featured last month on the cover of Plein Air Magazine and she will have several paintings in the exhibit.
Other participants include Marcia Burtt, John Cosby, Kathleen Dunphy, Mark Fehlman, Robin Hall, Gregory Hull, Mark Kerckhoff, Randall Sexton, Brian Mark Taylor, Robert Watts, Toni Williams and Jeff Yeomans.
The paintings are for show and sale to benefit the mission of the Friends of the Library board, which works to support and enhance the programs of the La Jolla Riford Library. The exhibit will remain on display in the Community Room Art Gallery through the fall.
