Visions Reimagined: From Little to Big

Open June 1 – 25

Brought to life by noted “plein air” artists Chella, Rick Ingraham and Janet Hardie, this show was an open call to artists for pairs of works — one  “study” or sketch, along with a bigger companion studio piece based on the study. Plein air paintings are primarily landscapes, but also include sea and cityscapes, and tree or plant studies that have been produced in the open air, reminiscent of the late 19th century French impressionists. The paired works show the contrast between quickly produced studies, and more carefully rendered pieces produced in the studio. Awards and cash prizes, sponsored by Valley Suncatchers plein air painting group, will be given at a June 17 reception. To view award-winning pieces online, click here.
