Every summer for the past eight years, the artists of DaGroup have headed to a small lake in the High Sierras near Sonora Pass to camp, paint and celebrate the High Sierras together for one week. The artists camp around the cabins and outhouse built by Marshall and Edie Lockman and their family. The beauty and grandeur of the place continues to inspire the artists as it has the family. Marshall Lockman, a former photojournalist, traded his camera for a paintbrush. Lockman has recorded with his brush the change in light, and season more than any other DaGroup artist, as he has spent over 40 summers immersed in the High Sierras of Haypress Lake.
Light dancing on the lake, color and shadows ranging across the peaks and granite boulders with the passing of the day, dramatic weather changes, and the majesty of the old juniper trees keep the artists engaged in plein air painting. This show celebrates and shares the work of these “painters in paradise.”
