In-Gallery: June 4 – 25, 2021
“First Coast Plein Air Painters welcomes you to enjoy our exhibition, “La Primavera en Plein Air.” Our artists continue to uphold a 19th century tradition of painting landscapes derived from the colonies in France, England, Italy, Germany, and spread throughout Europe. Eventually, plein air painting expanded to the United States. Our artists embrace the natural sunlight of open-air studio paintings within a landscape. Our artists paint landscapes along coastal shorelines, natural preserves, farms, and historical locations. The outdoor painting constitutes our vision of nature, natural light, and our observation of the wildlife as well as architecture. While some of our members embrace a more traditional approach and classical fashion in painting, others will have a tendency for a more modern vision of outdoor paintings.
FCPAP has a steadily growing membership in Northeast Florida. We are dedicated painters who promote the visual arts throughout our communities. Our organization actively participates in events, local charities, and workshops. We are appreciative of the St. Augustine Art Association for hosting our show…”
– Lori Ann Sweet, President of the First Coast Plein Air Painters
