The Riverside Legacy: California Plein Air Paintings Past and Present - Extended through April 17 Riverside Art Museum

Exhibition: December 21, 2013 - March 30, 2014 (Extended through April 17)

Reception: February 6, 2014, 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.

The Riverside Legacy: California Plein Air Paintings Past and Present exhibit is comprised of a select grouping of Plein Air paintings and drawings from the Riverside Art Museum’s permanent collection. Featuring works completed by artists as early as the 1930s, this exhibition refers back to the history of Riverside and its local environs as this outdoor movement spread throughout the state of California in the late nineteenth century. A choice selection of contemporary Plein Air artwork by RAM's Plein Air Artists of Riverside (PAAR) group will also be included, proving the steadfast popularity of California Impressionism even today. As we look to both past and present works of the Riverside area, this exhibition celebrates the modern development of Plein Air artists over time, revealing the growth and impact of the Riverside community as a whole.
