A star-studded lineup of painters are scheduled to present their fantastic plein air works during “Beloved California II” at this well-known gallery. Who, where, and when?

Seventeen painters with a serious passion for place — and painting — will soon be presenting their recent outdoor works at the Holton Studio Gallery in Berkeley, California. The second edition of “Beloved California” will open to great anticipation on November 4, continuing through December 30. The exhibition will surely be an incredible display of contemporary Californian plein air skill.

Via the gallery website: “One of the most rewarding experiences for a framer is collaborating directly with artists whose work he especially responds to, and who appreciate the power of frames to enhance their pictures. With a particular emphasis on contemporary northern California plein air and landscape painting, Holton Studio Gallery celebrates the beauty of nature and life in harmony with it. We are proud to be presenting these outstanding artists — and love framing their work!”
