This free juried painting competition and art sale will be held at:

Devendorf Park

Having skipped the 2020 and 2021 seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we welcome back this public plein air event, intended to educate and inspire people of all ages about the visual arts. For the past few years, we have donated funds to the Youth Arts Collective (YAC), which over its two decades on the Monterey Peninsula has provided studio and exhibiton opportunities to over 800 local youths. Our donation goes towards gallery space, supplies, personal and long-term mentoring, art and life skills instruction, and many other benefits supplied by YAC.

Coming soon: Cathey’s submissions to this show.

Painting California: Seascapes and Beach Towns

Paintings of the California Art Club


This new art book, published by Skira Rizzoli, features the work of 200 top artists from the California Art Club and serves as a delightful tour guide of the coast of California, from north to south. The 276-page book focuses on the evocative seascapes, charming seaside towns, and beach communities that can be found in our beautiful state, from San Diego to Crescent City (at the Oregon border). It also fulfills the role of historian, giving glimpses into California’s past through the original artists of CAC.

As a contemporary California-based artist, Cathey is thrilled that two of her seascapes are included in this book! Please check it out and buy a copy for yourself. It would also make a wonderful gift as a coffee table book.

To learn more about the book or to order it online,
