Art Showcase

Submitted By Sachie Johns

Landscape paintings created directly on location, called "plein air," is one of the most challenging ways of painting. Artists attempt to capture an immediate impression of what they see outdoors in natural light rather than in a studio with sketches or photographs. Plein Air artists reflect the appearance of subjects in different weather and at different times of the day. Starting with nothing, the artist creates a composition on the spot, in the moment.

The Fremont Art Association (FAA) is pleased to announce its fourth quarter showcase featuring Bay Area plein air artists. The works of 12 local artists will be on display from Friday, October 29, through Sunday, November 21, at the FAA Gallery. FAA has held three Plein Air "Paint Outs" in Fremont - at Lake Elizabeth and the Higuera Adobe.

Something special happens when a painter sees a subject that attracts them. As anyone who appreciates a beautiful spring day will agree, seeing such beauty can be uplifting and exhilarating. Plein Air artists hope to transfer and share that feeling on canvas.

The public is invited to meet talented plein air artists at a reception on Sunday, November 7, from 1:30 p.m. - 4 p.m. at the FAA gallery. A variety of new works from additional member artists will compliment the gallery's fourth quarter offerings.
