This is a quick post to let everyone know about some upcoming events. In particular, I’ll be the Featured Artist at the Benicia Plein Air Galler for the month of May. I’ll be doing a show all about redwoods. Scroll down for the details! :)
April 26, 27, 28th Plein Air Expo-
Since the Expo is in SF this year, I will be attending the event as a volunteer, helping out some of the demonstrators, painting plein air for fun, and checking it all out. I’ve never been before. I’m definitely NOT there as a presenter, but if folks want to connect, I thought it worth mentioning. It should be fun! :)
May 4-5th, May Benicia Open Studios 2019-
I’ll be participating in the Benicia Open Studios again, as a member of the Benicia Plein Air Gallery. The Open Studios occur the weekend of May 4th and 5th. We’ll have the tent out with additional work in it, and I’ll be out painting and doing an informal demo on Saturday from 1200-200.
Arts Benicia hosts the event, and will have a “teaser” show up at their gallery, featuring the work of participating galleries and artists. I’m representing the Benicia Plein Air Gallery this year, with a piece in that show. From there, you can take the shuttle to different locations, or start elsewhere, as you see fit.

This group show is all about... you guessed it- figures! I’ll have 4 of my figurative paintings up for sale, as well as some extras in sleeves. If you’ve been following my on Facebook or Instagram (as stephenadamberry), you’ll have seen some samples of my work over the last year. I aim to be there on Sunday morning, until around 200 or so. If you’d like to connect, please contact me directly. This event is happening the same weekend as the Benicia Open Studios. Busy Stevie!

May 9- June 2nd- My Solo “Our Redwoods” Show
May 11th, 400-600- Reception!
I will be May’s featured artist at the Benicia Plein Air Gallery. The weekend after the Open Studios my work will go up, and I’ll have my reception. This year, my show is all about redwood forests. I’ve been traveling to a variety of groves, and my paintings are all about them- Muir Woods, Armstrong Redwood Reserve, Big Basin, Hendy Woods, and the Navarro River Redwoods State Park. If you’ve been watching some of my posts, or follow me on Facebook or Instagram (as stephenadamberry), you’ll have seen some of the work I’ll be showing- ferny groves, CA bay trees, redwoods, fallen nursery trees, etc. Come and view them up close and maybe take one home! :)
