Light Chaser  
Exciting WEEK for Plein Air ahead...
especially for the viewer of more wonderful Paintings!
This week is the opening of PASC exhibit
"Light Chasers" at the Celery Barn Gallery in Towles Court.  See the link above for more info.

Katie Dobson Cundiff donated a gorgous painting that will be raffled off the night of the Galla At the Celery Barn Gallery

Hodges Soileau did two beautiful paintings illustrating the field study uses to the artist and their studio paintings.  See His blog for more information on this.   
If this is not enough,  
There are more live examples of this to be seen at the 
  VPA EXHIBIT still on display too until April 12th.  The emphasis of the entire exhibit was to illustrate just what 'plein air' is for the viewer and the artist.  

If you are a lover of Plein Air Painting or their Paintings.... this is a great week of enjoying them.  Hope to see you at one of the locations.  Wonderful Paintings are not only on display, they are available for purchase to add to your collections.  The beauty of Plein Air remains in that it is a piece of history touched personally with the artists hand and vision... to record our area landscapes keeping it recorded in heirloom quality for all time.  From the beginner painter to the national award winning artist... all are available at both of these exhibits.  ENJOY THE ART and its little piece of History shared by the Artist' eye.

VPA MAPs are taking a break from their official MAP.
I am teaching workshops the next few weeks.  If interested in those more info is available at my blog
