Los Gatos Plein Air is a fine art exhibition and sale sponsored by the Los Gatos Morning Rotary Club. This juried event brings nationally-recognized Plein Air artists to Los Gatos to paint "en plein air," a 19th century style of painting "in the open air" on location. Los Gatos Plein Air is now in its eighth straight year, and has become a much-anticipated community-wide event. It’s also the only Plein Air event in the Bay Area. Proceeds go to support art and science programs for youth in the South Bay. Beneficiaries include Montalvo Arts Center, New Museum Los Gatos, Art Docents of Los Gatos, Los Gatos Music & Arts, and Lighting for Literacy. For more information, visit http://www.lgpleinair.org/.
