The Genesee Valley Plein Air Painters will open its Fourteenth Annual Art Show beginning January 1st at Pittsford Barnes & Noble’ Community Room. This competitive, judged and juried show will display about 90 original paintings recently created throughout the Northeast. The plein air show runs through February 1st, 2019.
“Plein air painting,” meaning on-site painting in open air (natural light), is popular with artists and their patrons alike. Boats, rural barns, landscape vistas, gardens, cityscapes and waterscapes are all staple subjects in the plein air painter’s repertoire. Over 85% of each painting in this show is produced on-site, “in the open air.” Painting mediums include oil, water color, soft pastel, acrylic and gouache.
