‘Color in the Landscape’

Popularized by the 19th century French Impressionists, plien air painting endeavors to capture a landscape’s moment in time and to find that near-magical understanding of how light and surface dance together. In “Color in the Landscape,” a dedicated group of local artists embraces this technique and attempts to breathe new life into the field. Displayed throughout the show are a multitude of paintings that showcase the variety in our local landscapes. They also illustrate how each artist interprets a moment in the light through their own personal passion for the method. The results are an exquisite series of paintings filled with color, vibrancy and a delicate touch that imbues life into a true works of art.
