FALLBROOK – Jack Ragland won first place in the Plein Air contest at the San Diego County Fair, June 23. There were so many participants in the competition, that there weren't enough display easels to hold all the paintings and Ragland's was displayed on a bench for the judging. The judge did not look at his paining for very long so, Ragland was surprised when she called his name as the winner.

Jack Ragland poses with "Wine Wagon," one of his paintings to be on display at Temecula Valley Museum starting Aug. 23.

Ragland will now be part of a large show at Temecula Valley Museum for the artists who won Best of Show in the Annual Ralph Love Plein Air Competition two times or more, plus other awards over the past 10 years. His paintings will reflect the local landscapes, dancing, and activities. There will also be works by the late founder, Ralph Love.

The public is invited to the reception, the day the show opens, Friday, Aug. 23, 6:30 p.m. at the museum, 28314 Mercedes Street, Temecula. The exhibit will be up for three months, closing on Nov. 10. Open hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Closed Mondays.
