There is a Plein Aire exhibit in the Joseph House Art Gallery, 828 Broadway. Plein aire in French means "open air," and means artists worked outside, painting what they saw.
The exhibit will run through June 30.
Several of the Joseph House artists painted during the April 25 Springfest downtown. Others took part in Helena Meek's plein aire workshop on April 30. More took part on the annual "paint out" on May 1-2. Still others took part in Dick Millman's workshop on May 13. Most of the paintings are of downtown scenes and buildings.
Many of these paintings, in oils, acrylics, pen-and-ink, pastels, drawings an photographs, are in the exhibit.
The gallery is open 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and by appointment on Saturday.
