The Redwood Artists Association presents more than 25 original artworks.

As Steve Lemke likes to say, 'Painting with friends en plein air' is always a plus. Works displayed include watercolors by both new and experienced artists in the RAA. You'll see familiar local landscapes and scenes from other locales. All are well worth your time! Artists include: Paul Rickard, John Jameton, Barbara Caldwell, Burleigh Wilson, and Lance Torgerson with watercolors; Steve Lemke with pastels; Jan Hollander with oils; and acrylic paintings by Lynn Niekrasz and Beth Gin.
