Exhibition of local scenery
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association's new outdoor painting group, Fremont Art Association Plein Air/East Bay Outdoor Painters (FAAPA/EBOP) will exhibit their landscape paintings of scenery of the Bay Area at The Wild Vine Wine Bar and Lounge in Livermore starting Thursday, July 5 through Thursday, August 2 with a reception on Thursday, July 12, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
En plein air is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is used to describe paintings that have been created chiefly outdoors, rather than in the studio. Painting in plein air is one of the most difficult and challenging ways of painting. Plein air artists attempt to capture an impression of what the eye sees, rather than what the viewer knows or feels about the scene.
The landscape paintings that comprise the exhibit are for the most part created directly on location and are all local scenes. Most of these paintings are studies from the group's weekly informal plein air excursions. Although our schedule is maintained on the Fremont Art Association Plein Air (FAAPA), we are also known as East Bay Outdoor Painters (EBOP) and we are looking for more people to come out and paint, sketch with us. The location changes every two weeks; all mediums are welcome. There is nothing you need to do to join in except show up and paint, sketch or whatever. Join us on Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
