The Foothill Artists League held an art show Sunday afternoon at the historic Lanterman House on Encinas Drive, where about 130 visitors browsed through art, toured the house museum and listened to the bluegrass tunes of Keepin’ Fire.
The League is a group of ten painters who paint in the Impressionist and plein air traditions made famous by California artists in the late 19th and early 20th century.
The term “plein air” is French for “open air” and the style of painting stressed that painters move from their studios to work outside, painting nature and buildings as they saw them in natural light.
The show featured art by Foothill Artists League members Jean Tannhauser, Barbara Trevino, Karen Sill, Millie Page, Valery Moorehead, Gail Martin, Karen Horn, Kadija Dada Behary, Desdy Baggott, and Margot Lennartz.
Many of the artists in the League have studied under Lennartz, who is the coordinator and leader of the group.
