The Ohio Plein Air Society (OPAS) painters have created works of art for this exhibition with the theme “Parks en Plein Air” which coincides with the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service. This juried event will include works painted on location in local, city, county, state and national parks.
“En plein air” is a French expression meaning “in the open air,” and refers to the act of painting outdoors with the artist’s subject in full view. Plein air artists capture the spirit and essence of a landscape or subject by incorporating natural light, color and movement into their works.
