Plein Air by The Monday Painters Group

The fourth annual showing of Plein Air works by The Monday Painters Group opened in the Education Centre gallery on June 22. The show will be available until August 5.

All pieces in the show were painted on location and most are local scenes.The Monday Painters began about fifteen years ago when a group of eager students at the DVSA decided to meet and paint together outside of their classes. Over the years many other local artists heard about this gathering and asked to be included.The artists come from many local communities and there is a range of talent from professional to beginner, painting in pastels, water colours, acrylics and oils. The only requirement is a passion for the joy of painting outdoors and a desire to paint in the company of other like minded artists.
