Plein Air Event
Say goodbye to the studio and get outdoors.
En plein air is a French expression meaning “in the open air” and refers to the act leaving behind the four walls of a studio in favor of painting outdoors with the artist’s subject in full view. Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement into their works.
Plein Air is a Clinton County Art Council program dedicated to enhancing the public’s awareness of the freedom of painting “en plein air” while providing a venue for established and emerging artists alike to share creative endeavors with collectors and the public.
Registration for this two-dimensensional art event is open to all artists, ages 17 and older. Media choices include: oils, acrylics, watercolors, gouache, pastels, charcoal or pencil and mixed media. The exhibition remains on view and available for sale through June 1, 2021 in the Clinton County Art Gallery.
