The History and Future of Plein Air Painting
June 1, 2019 | 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This event is designed to help us value and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us–to help us appreciate the things we all pass by every day without really noticing. Our area has been the inspiration for both the Hudson River School and Northeast Pennsylvania painters.
An exhibit of classic prints traces the history of plein air art, from the 1600s to today. Local contemporary artists also offer their pieces created “en plein air”. A local expert will also be available to present a short slide presentation, and answer questions.
You’ll experience how, through “artistic license”, a tree may become more than a tree, to express amusing or even deeply religious ideas. So please join us on June 1, 2019, from 4 – 6 PM, at the Artists’ Market Community Center, 114 Richardson Avenue, Shohola, PA 18458.
Event Coordinator: Susan Miiller
