The Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District is accepting entries for its “Wildflowers of Garland Park” exhibition, which will be on view at the Visitor Center at Garland Ranch Regional Park from April 19 to Aug. 10.

Dawn Whitelaw, Billyo O’Donnell, Larry Moore, Stewart White, and Richard Sneary take in the opening reception of the 2013 edition of Plein Air Richmond.

Brazier Gallery in Richmond, Virginia, will host the 3rd Annual Plein Air Richmond event June 23-28. Artists are asked to group around a new location in Richmond each day, with the public invited to watch them paint. One notable activity at the event is the Fast and Fresh quick draw competition, in which the paintings are sold right off the easel to benefit the Richmond Symphony. To be one of the 35 artists invited to participate, meet the deadline of March 15; find out more through Brazier Gallery.
