Plein air exhibit at Harrington Gallery ends tomorrow

Exhibit showcases Jade Fon's works, as well as other artists'

This is the final week to view the current exhibit at the Harrington gallery, "Jade Fon Retrospective & Plein Air Painters," which closes tomorrow.

Jade Fon, who died in 1983, taught for more than 30 years in the Bay Area at adult school programs, and his annual Jade Fon Asilomar Watercolor Workshops attracted students worldwide.

The current exhibit showcases some of his most memorable works, such as Great Canada Goose, as well as paintings by artists who studied with him: Becky Davies, Pam Della, Carol Jusrasin, Jeanne Kapp, Geri Keary, Loreta Landucci, Julie Limberg, Catherine McCargar, Nancy Partovi, Dori Sassin, Charlotte Severin, Pat Smith and Larry Wilson. Occasionally the artists still meet and paint outdoors together, which is reflected in this exhibition.

The works of Jeff Snell and Lynda Briggs, whose paintings include the acrylic "Nest," will be on exhibit at the Firehouse Arts Center through Aug. 13. The Pleasanton Art League Wall is featuring the photography of Carole Hilton, a collection of images of doors and windows from the many places she has traveled, through July 26.
