| Plein Air: Painting Coastal Color and Light
June 28-30, 2013
Plein air is a term derived from the French expression “en plein air”, meaning “in the open air” and specifically refers to the asct of painting outdoors.
Cannon Beach’s popular “Plein Air & More” is a three day event which includes our Friday night “meet & greet” with the participating artists and gallery owners, along with a collaborative show of art work.
Saturday and Sunday, more than four dozen artists, represented by Cannon Beach’s art galleries will be creating works of art on location throughout the town and on the beach. Many will work in the traditional method of plein aire painting, while others will sculpt, create and photograph in their own unique styles. Individual galleries will display the finished works along with hosting receptions for the artists Saturday and Sunday.
