AVALON — The Catalina Island Conservancy will host the fifth annual Catalina: The Wild Side Art Show and Sale at Newport Harbor Yacht Club on Oct. 25.
This year’s show will feature eight renowned plein air artists: John Cosby, Andy Evansen, Kim Lordier, Joe Paquet, Jesse Powell, Ron Rencher, Brian Stewart and Matt Smith.
Proceeds from the art show and sale will benefit the Catalina Island Conservancy and will be used to support the permanent collection of plein air art documenting the conservancy’s conservation efforts and progress in habitat restoration. The paintings also bring attention to the island’s backcountry.
New this year is an opportunity for attendees to purchase Priority Admission, which allows guests to enter the event an hour before the doors open to the general public. Guests will be able to purchase art during this time. Tickets can be reserved online at catalinaconservancy.org/wildsideartshow.
