PLEIN AIR PAINTINGS DEPICTING SCENES OF ORANGE COUNTY
ON DISPLAY AT JOHN WAYNE AIRPORT

SANTA ANA, Calif. - From June 16 through July 14, a series of oil paintings by Orange County artist Maryana Wagor are on display at John Wayne Airport (JWA) as part of JWA's Community Focus Space Program. The paintings can be viewed on the Departure (upper) Level near security screening areas in Terminals A, B and C, and on the Arrival (lower) Level adjacent to Baggage Carousels 1 and 4.

"Maryana Wagor's paintings reflect a landscape that changes with the light, depicting beautiful scenes of the place we call home," said Board Chairwoman Lisa Bartlett.  "The County is fortunate to have a world-class airport with an Arts Program that highlights the many talented artists within our community."

The exhibition includes studio works and plein air art pieces created outdoors in various Orange County locations. Painted at different times of the day, the images capture with paint on canvas the feeling of a particular moment in time.
