Come out to a Meet the Artists Reception at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast on Thursday, July 28 from 5:00-7:00 PM. View Capture the Moment: An Exhibition of Plein Air Paintings currently on display and meet the Emerald Coast Plein Air Painters.
The Emerald Coast Plein Air Painters are presenting 30 works on the walls of the second floor atrium at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. Currently on display and remaining through August 31, 2016, the exhibit, titled "Capturing the Moment", features works in oils, acrylic, watercolor, and ink wash, by sixteen artists including Joan Vienot, Weezie Bancroft-Brabner, Patti Overholt, Rebecca Perrott, Ed Nickerson, Lenda Baxter-Simonic, Dan Robison, Susan Alfieri, Judy Dewar, Theresa Grillo-Laird, Deborah Scott Mason, Paul Martin, Monica Achberger, Russell Ferris, Rebecca Hart, and Marian Pacsuta.
Coordinator for the group Joan Vienot says, “Paintings created outdoors, on-site, ‘en plein air’ (Fr., in open air), usually are fresher and more spontaneous than studio paintings. Plein air artists brave the elements to capture a moment in time, an impression of the colors, values, and shapes, before the light changes. While scenes in plein air are sometimes painted as studies for studio works, this exhibit displays plein air paintings that stand on their own, complete, providing a sense of place and time that is difficult to achieve in the studio. “
“Capturing the Moment” is displayed as a part of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast’s Arts in Medicine Program. It will be on display through August 31, 2016. The art exhibit and reception is co-sponsored by the Cultural Arts Alliance of Walton County.
