Penticton en Plein Air

Posted in Stacy Studios on April 20, 2010 by stacystudios


The Penticton Art Gallery is pleased to host the second annual Penticton en plein air.
The PAG has invited 24 artists working in the genre to create a work of art in Penticton and immediate surrounding area. The artists, working in small groupings, will choose a winery from the Naramata Bench Winery to paint and the general public is welcome to come observe the artists at work and get a sneak preview of the works to be auctioned off at this year’s Starry Starry Night Art Auction to be held July 10th .
‘Plein air’ is a term derived from the French phrase en plein air, which literally means ‘in the open air’. It’s a familiar concept today, but in the late 1800s when the Impressionists ventured out of their studios into nature to investigate and capture the effects of sunlight and different times of days on a subject, it was quite revolutionary.
Plein air painting is all about painting in the great outdoors, on location, surrounded by your subject. No studio, no photos to copy from, just you and nature.
