Plein Air Artists return to Indian Springs during Annual Pow Wow Sept. 11th

A Plein Air Event? What is it like to paint outdoors with fellow artists? They come early in the morning to register at Generations Gallery. Armed with their favorite easel and a variety of art
supplies, a dozen or more artists find their way to their favorite spot to paint outdoors in the historic village.

It's a great way to meet new friends as curious onlookers gather around the working
artists. About 3PM, they stop for refreshments at Pinky's Cafe and delight the public who gathers there, in the cool air conditioning, with an art auction and sale of their day's work.

It's fresh, invigorating and a bit disarming to have to show and sell what you have done in just 4-6 hours. But the competition recognizes real "talent under pressure." For more details, see

Membership is not required to participate in the events. The $25 entry fee goes toward the reception and purchase awards. If you would like to join the association, dues are a modest $10 annually and can be arranged by email at pleinairga@yahoo.com or Phone: 706-975-6419.
