This “California Impressions” art exhibit encompasses the artists desired subjects, California! Each artist has expressed a passion for painting outdoors. Laura Lindem who studied in England with the renowned landscape painter, Fred Cuming, states; “There are so many places to paint in this beautiful slice of California that a backpack and all of my plein air essentials are always in the car and ready.” Coraly Hanson is an avid outdoor painter and will be showing works from the Sierras including Yosemite and our Central Coast. She has won over 15 awards for her works in the past five years.

Coraly Hanson and Laura Lindem were selected for this exhibition during last fall’s Atmosphere painting competition at Carmel Visual Arts where their paintings were displayed. “Each of these artists carry-on the California tradition of landscape painting that is so prized here in Carmel,” says CVA director Rich Brimer. There will more than 20 newly created impressionistic paintings in splendid colors on display that will grace any collection.
