The Beauty of Colorado: Artwork by PAAC Members
June 2018 – September 2018
Plein Air Artists Colorado (PAAC) was created for the love of plein air painting and the camaraderie of painting outdoors. A founding principal of PAAC is to create opportunities for artists to paint outdoors together, and that these “paint outs” be open to everyone of every level. “Paint out” locations are posted on their website: http://www.pleinairartistscolorado.com/
This exhibition features original artwork of Colorado scenes in a wide range of media. Many of the paintings were created especially for this show – PAAC members were inspired to paint larger plein air paintings than usual or to create large studio pieces inspired by plein air paintings. The paintings feature a broad spectrum of viewpoints of our beautiful state, from the urban centers to the most remote and wild spaces.
The exhibition includes work by the following artists:
Jody Ahrens, Melissa Arthur, Patty Carberry, Jenifer Cline, Dawn Cohen, Merri Daley, Stephen DeOrio, Alison Dickson, Marianna Duford, Patty Dwyer, Jeanne Echternach, Lisa Ellison, Joni Emily, Mary Pat Ettinger, Andrea Gabel, Ted Garcia, Gary Gore, Fran Gottlieb, Lisa Camilla Hale, Nelia Harper, Susan Haskins, Shaun Horne, Shelley Howard, Marie Johannes, Leslie Jorgensen, Holly Kernes, Jan Kirkpatrick, Sheryl Massaro, Deborah McAllister, Maryann McGraw, Margueritte Meier, Jennifer Reifenberg, Barb Smith, Cheryl St. John, and Emilie Young.
