Arroyo Seco paintings exhibit in Pasadena Oct. 16

“Plein Air Paintings of the Arroyo Seco” Exhibition and Sale

The California Art Club and the La Casita Foundation are joining forces
for the fourth time in five years to present a special exhibition and
sale of plein air paintings of the Arroyo Seco. The exhibition will
feature new original artwork by renowned contemporary-traditional
fine artists, who will paint on location during the week prior to the
exhibition to document the environmentally-sensitive Arroyo Seco
and La Casita del Arroyo, a Pasadena Cultural Heritage Landmark
since 1976.

Since Pasadena's charm has long been associated with roses and
the flowers that bloom throughout the city year-round, the paintings
to be featured in this year's event will focus on the flowers and foliage
that surround La Casita and adorn the canyon. This special emphasis
on flowers pays homage to the Pasadena Garden Club's history of
maintaining “The Little House on the Arroyo” and its gardens. It also
allows Club artists to give a nod to the organization's early artists,
who often featured vibrant flower fields in their California landscape

Proceeds from the sale of the paintings will benefit the California
Art Club's educational programs and the La Casita Foundation's
mission to conserve the gardens at La Casita.
