The Gallery at the Borrego Art Institute not only supports local artists, providing workshops and a location to show their work, but also draws in artists from throughout the world. During the season, shows change monthly to present a wide variety of quality art which attracts visitors to Borrego Springs, visitors who are amazed by the incredibly beautiful art venue in our little desert town.
15th Annual Plein Air Invitational
don't need to be an expert or familiar with Plein Air to enjoy it.
Plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air” and refers to
the act of painting outdoors with the artist’s subject in full view.
Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or
subject by incorporating natural light, color, and movement that can
only come from seeing the subject outdoors in its natural form. This
spectacular landscape right here in Borrego Springs, is the perfect
setting for these amazing artists.
For our friends who can't make it to Borrego Springs this year, be sure
to join us on our Facebook or Instagram page. We show new work daily,
it is for sale. If you are interested in a painting you see online and
like more information, please call us.
