What is Plein Air Art?
En plein air is a French expression which means “in the open air,” and is used to describe the act of painting outdoors with the focus of the artwork usually being landscapes. Just as our parks and open space public land is available to all people regardless of income or social status, so is this type of art.
Plein Air Art Show
This year’s show is called Outdoor Creations – A 2014 Boulder County Juried Art Show. The event celebrates the beautiful place we call home and strengthens the relationship between the art community and Boulder County Parks and Open Space lands.
Many artists who exhibited in the first plein air exhibit in 2011 will lead paint-out sessions throughout the paint out period. Some sessions will be held on properties not normally open to the public.
