‘On the Waterfront and Beyond’

I walked along the Ohio River today, enchanted by geese, undulating water and boats. It’s a wonder I made it back to the office at all. The artists who paint plein air must have great focus to do what they need to do and not space out because a bird went by. Of course, they’re used to being outdoors and painting the landscape in front of them. That’s the job, and they do it well. “On the Waterfront and Beyond” is the result of the time the Plein Air Painters of Kentucky spent last summer and fall painting along the river from the Waterfront to Harrods Creek. The opening reception is Thursday, May 11 from 5-8 p.m.
