Plein Air

Plein air painting means painting that is done outside, directly from the subject, in sunshine, shadows and sometimes even rain. The painting group is a loose association of professional and amateur, experienced and beginning artists. The paintings in the exhibition represent individual and unique views of our area. The different sites of each weekly paintout are captured in 6 or 8 or even, 10 different ways, depending on how many artists have come to paint. A variety of mediums are represented: acrylic, pastel, pencil, oils and watercolor.
The East Branch Delaware River Plein Air Painters is a chapter of the NY Plein Air Painters. Participants are a congenial group of art makers whose members share an intense love of: Painting, the outdoors and the natural and manmade landscape. Various mediums are represented, including pastel, oil on canvas and paper, pencil, watercolor, and acrylic.
Participating area painters include Dale Amato, Debbie Brindis, Patricia Charney, Agnes Freas, Kathleen Green, Irina Grinevitskaya, Robin Kappy, Margaret Leveson, Patrice Lorenz, Nancy McShane, Michelle Sidrane, Alix Hallman Travis and Dan Williams.
