C’ville Arts Features – “Capturing the Soul with Plein Air”– During June 2017

Our traveling plein air painter, Meg West, will be the featured artist in
June at C-ville Arts. She will be at the gallery to meet you during the
First Friday event on June 2nd, from 6 to 8.

Meg West just returned from traveling around the South Island of New Zealand. Small
postcard size paintings, plein air style, plus local scenes of
Albemarle, Highland, and Bath Counties are the focus of her latest work.
“When you drive around New Zealand,” she recalls, “every bend in the
road is exciting for a visual artist and what it has to offer.

En plein air or plein air painting, is a phrase borrowed from the French
equivalent meaning “open (in plain) air”. It is used to describe the act
of painting outdoors, where a painter reproduces the actual visual
conditions seen at the time. This method contrasts with studio painting
or academic rules; those might create a predetermined look. “The fun
and challenge of painting in all conditions of weather and changing
atmosphere is part of the plein air spirit that I love.”
