Saturday afternoon the Plein Air Show opened at the Link and Deselm's Galleries with a lot of excellent work and a good turn out. Awards were given and several pieces sold that evening. Rich Gallego won the Artist Choice Award in the Link Gallery and we are standing in from of the piece (at top with the yellow ribbon). Congratulations Rich!
I won this award last year and think it is the award most coveted because the choice is made by the other painters; an honor indeed. Rich is from Palmdale, California and shows his work in the prestigious Segil Gallery in Monrovia, California. Incidentally, Monrovia is the town I grew up in.
