The Newport Bay Conservancy (NBC) and OC Parks are proud to host an ongoing exhibition of select paintings for sale. Paintings are by top Southern California Plein Air Painters Association (SOCALPAPA) artists, whose works are shown in many galleries throughout Southern California. SOCALPAPA has over 300 members dedicated to celebrating the local landscape.
Each quarter three different juried SOCALPAPA artists will display paintings of the Back Bay at the Interpretive Center. NBC will receive 35% of the sales price of each painting sold.
