Interested in Plein Air Painting? We are lucky to have a Jade Fon plein air painting group in this area that continues the tradition started by famous California painter, Jade Fon Woo. This group meets regularly most Saturdays at pre-arranged locations throughout the Bay Area and is open to all. Contact Becky Davies at email@example.com for confirmation or to join the group.
Jade Fon (1911-1983): The founder of a well-known watercolor workshop in Asilomar, California, Jade Fon became a California plein-air painter whose work combined Oriental influences and regionalism called “California Style.” His subjects range from cityscapes to wildlife in natural surroundings. He initiated plein-air painting classes and groups wherever he lived, and we are the lucky recipients of his tradition in our area. He was born in San Jose, California, was raised in Winslow, Arizona, and attended the University of Arizona at Flagstaff before continuing his higher education at the University of New Mexico. In the 1930s, he moved back to California where he attended the Art Students League in Los Angeles and exhibited with the California Water Color Society. In the art world, he was called “Jade Fon”, although his full name was Jade Fon Woo.
Art Trax, third Saturdays of every month, Old Town Pittsburg: a gathering of artists, makers and performers who come to sell their work and connect with a creative community. Contact Erin Mahollitz, Creative Pittsburg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
