For those of you back on the east coast, my painting from Topanga Canyon State Park will be included in an exhibition of California landscapes held in Vermont this summer. The exhibition, titled California's Landscapes and Legacy, will include artists Peter Adams, Karl Dempwolf, Tony Peters, Tony Pro and David Gallup, among many others, and marks the first time that an exhibition of the California Art Club will be presented on the east coast.

The opening reception is on Saturday, August 1, from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m., and the exhibition runs August 1 - September 27. The Bennington Center for the Arts is located at 44 Gypsy Lane, Bennington, Vermont, 05201. A full color high-quality catalogue will be produced to accompany the exhibition.
