About 20 members of the Mesa Art League participated in a plein air experience (painting outdoors) at the Riparian Preserve at Water Park in Gilbert recently. Artists created paintings in watercolor, oil and other mediums, while photographers focused on the abundant flora and fauna in the urban preserve. Mallards, Albert’s towhees, doves, green-winged teals and other birds kept them company. The league is looking to swell its membership and is inviting artists 18 years and older to apply.
