      The artists in this show find inspiration “close to home” and can be identified by their own unique style. These plein air artists concentrated their work for this exhibition on the beauty of a landscape painting. In the body of work, each artist captures an element in nature and emphasizes that element as the subject and focus.

       

      Dan Michael | A Pastel Painter

      Dan’s work always includes a ribbon of light. The artist explains, “These arrangements of pastel marks go beyond a mechanical process, they are orchestrated to try and capture the elusive qualities of light and atmosphere that display the extraordinary characteristics of common subject matter”.

       

      Kathleen Walsh | Oil Plein Air Painter

      Kathleen is inspired by nature. She seems ‘at home’ when venturing out to capture a landscape. “Landscape is my guide. Nature the muse. Just being outdoors awakens the senses; melds surprise, consideration and wonder.”

       

      Amy HR Donahue | Oil Plein Air Painter

      Amy is praised for the attention to detail in her work. She makes a small painting feel large! “Everywhere I travel scenes beg to be painted. Light and vivid color captivate me.”

       

      Fonda Cody | Ceramic Artist

      Fonda’s work has a natural appearance on the surface, including layering of rustic earth tones. “This process of discovery fuels my creativity in working with each media as I develop an awareness of their possibilities and limitations.
