Purchase tickets today at Your $100 contribution supports Master Artists, Local Inspiration and World Heritage of the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art organization).

Musicians include Eric Henderson, who has perfected the interpretation of Torroba’s Sonatina in A, and the Global Beat Foundation, who will play organic world rhythms.

The 9,000 square foot pavilion was custom built by Avalon Tent with a 29-foot ceiling, and it will cover the Aliso Creek Inn upper parking lot.  Pavilion walls will showcase a week’s worth of plein air paintings by Invitational master artists. The surrounding canyon and the pavilion will be professionally lit. Valets will greet guests for convenient complimentary parking.
