With 15 professional plein air painters in town, the walls of the Gadsden Museum of Art soon fill with amazing art! For locals the Southeastern Plein Air Invitational offers a chance to see sights we see everyday in a new, exciting, and provocative light--light very literally. The plein air artists seek to capture not just the subject but also the fleeting light effects of a spring day in the south. For everyone the collection offers the chance to share the experience of being there with the artist, seeing what the artist sees, and appreciating the beauty of nature.
Here is a link to view the over 150 paintings created between April 9 and 13.
