JoAnn McMahon's distinct, colorful landscapes take the spotlight at Benicia Plein Air Gallery this month. JoAnn comments on her painting: "Reconnecting to my background in art is my passion. I see the work in exciting uncompromising lines, colors and shapes. I try to communicate that vision to the viewer in my work. Plein air painting is a grand adventure for all the senses." Learn more about the artist at www.JoannMcMahon.com.

Benicia Plein Air Gallery proudly welcomes our new member artist,

Carol Tarzier

Benicia Plein Air Gallery features a year-round exhibit of work by all 13 of our gallery artists showcasing a colorful variety of media and styles. Drop by to see what's new! 

Carol Tarzier is a Bay Area painter and sculptor. Her sculpture career began in 1993, a few years after arriving in the Bay Area, with figurative and abstract work in bronze.

Over the last years she revisited an early love, oil painting. She has received numerous awards at plein air events. Her paintings have been represented in national shows including California Art Club’s Gold Medal over the last six years, the Salon International at the Greenhouse Gallery in Texas, the Haggin Museum in Stockton, and in the Oil Painters of America Western Regional Exhibition. “Painting is at once exhilarating, taxing, and energizing.“

Carol enjoys teaching painting and helping students develop perception of light and color. Learn more about her at www.Tarzier.com.
