California landscape paintings to go on display – U

— An exhibit of plein-air paintings showing the landscape of California from ocean to rural scenes, opens March 22 at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido.

“Art in Nature: Legacy of the Land,” features 120 paintings by 20 members of the Plein-Air Painters of America, but also includes the work of historic artists and art students.

The show is complemented by a display of works by early California painters who captured the Golden State before World War II. The historic exhibit of 50 paintings by well-known realist painters of the 19th and 20th Century portrays local scenes such as Mission Valley, dotted with farms and dirt paths and the road to Escondido when Rancho Bernardo was just a ranch. Many of the paintings are from private collections and have not been seen in San Diego shows before.
