Opening Reception, By The Light of Day - a Plein Air Exhibition, WWAC

Friday July 15, 2022
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

West Windsor Arts brings plein art painting to West Windsor with their summer show, By the Light of Day. Plein-air painting is, in its strictest sense, the practice of painting landscape pictures out-of-doors; more loosely, the achievement of an intense impression of the open air in a landscape painting. It expresses a spirit of spontaneity and truth to personal impulse within art. Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh was notably a fan of plein air painting, or the practice of painting in the great outdoors. Other impressionist painters such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir advocated plein air painting, and much of their work was done outdoors in the diffuse light of a large white umbrella. Decisions have to be made quickly, therefore painting reactions are more intuitive.

The exhibition is on view at West Windsor Arts. Our jurors include Lori Langsner, M.S., and Bob Barish.
