En plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air”. Artists will be invited to participate in a limited painting period, causing the works to be fresh and of the moment. Papers and canvases will be stamped and upon the return of the finished works, the show will be hung with paint still wet to the touch. A wonderful show for collectors to take home a piece of “fresh” art inspired by our local landscape. This is also a great opportunity for the public and plein air painting enthusiasts to watch artists work while they are painting throughout the area.
