July 5, 2016 Leave a comment
Beginning with this month Plein Air will meet 10:00 – 12:00 a.m.
July 7 – VIEW FROM ROGER CT
The location is off Potrero Ave, between Julian & Navallier streets. Turn north onto Roger Ct. which goes steeply uphill ending in a cul de sac. One side is the hillside with trees, the other a sweeping view of EC, Brooks & Angel islands and the Golden Gate. If it is not foggy, San Francisco should be center stage. It needs good visibility for the view, but is out of the wind and has a little shade later in the day from the hillside & trees. Park diagonally on the north side.
July 11 – ECAA MEETING
July 14 – WARD STREET VICTORIANS, BERKELEY
The 2100 block of Ward St. in Berkeley, between Fulton & Shattuck, has a number of interesting large (corner of Ward & Fulton) and small Victorians including #2156 Ward. You can sit in the shade on the south side of Ward and paint sunlit houses across the street. This is the area behind UC Storage building & Kirala restaurant on the east side of Shattuck. It is 4 blocks north of Ashby where Adeline & Shattuck come together. From MLK way in Berkeley, I would take Dwight Way east to Fulton and turn south.
July 21 – TILDEN BOTANICAL GARDEN
Enter Tilden from the intersection of Spruce/Grizzly Peak Blvd onto Wildcat Canyon Rd. Follow this to the the point that Shasta Rd enters Tilden. The Brazil Bldg is on your left, parking lot entrance is just beyond the junction. Views include the hills and Tilden Botanical Garden just beyond. You can also enter Tilden by the Shasta Rd entrance from Grizzly Peak Blvd.
July 28 – CROCKETT
Hwy 80 toward Sacramento, past Hwy 4 to exit 27 toward Crockett/Pomona St. Pomona is the main street, turn toward the water on 2nd St one block to Ceres. We meet at Bella Galleria Di Val-
ona 1225 Ceres Street.
