SSB Sponsors Art at Natividad

Every year, Natividad Foundation and Monterey Bay Plein Air Painters Association come together to present a special art exhibition on the second floor of Natividad. The paintings honor the patients served by Natividad, creating an environment that welcomes and affirms the healing strength of our community. The juror of this show was the award-​winning artist Carol Tarzier.

The term “Plein Air” painters refers to artists who go outside and paint in the open, “en plein air,” creating their paintings based on the scene in front of them. Generally, these paintings are relatively small in size because of the logistics of the undertaking and the need to capture the fleeting light and atmosphere. Some of the larger paintings in the show were created in the artist’s studio based on smaller plein air studies.

The exhibition is reproduced in full below. The paintings are available for purchase by contacting Pam Powell at pam@​natividadfoundation.​org or (831) 755-​4187. 30% of sales benefit Natividad Foundation’s Spiritual Care program.
