Second Annual Plein Air Paint Out Set for May 28

Generations Gallery hosts The Second Annual PLEIN AIR Memorial Day PAINT OUT on SATURDAY, MAY 28th in The Village at Indian Springs in Flovilla, GA - just south of Atlanta.

Preston King, an art instructor at the gallery, invites plein air artists everywhere, and those artists who may be new to this type of event, to come and paint. Spring is at its peak - the gardens, the lake, everything about this place is awesome! The one-day competition event includes an ART SHOW & SALE that will be open to the public immediately following the Awards Reception at 5:00 PM in Pinky's Parlour & Cafe'.

The painters will be focused on the natural beauty that abounds within Indian Springs State Park, outside The Indian Spring Hotel & Garden Museum, and around the many gardens and historic ante bellum buildings within The Village at Indian Springs.

What is PLEIN AIR? Several times a year, artists gather to paint outdoors, selecting scenes where the subject and the light is natural and the moment often fleeting. All work submitted for the afternoon show and sale must be done that day - without the aid of photography. A Plein Air event is a great opportunity to meet your favorite artist as they work; it provides collecters an opportunity to purchase work that has never been seen before; and, artists, who usually work alone in their studios, relish the opportunity to socialize with other artists. It is a tradition that painters have enjoyed for generations.
