Let's Visit in Gadsden Al

I'm so happy to be invited to the Southeastern Plein Air Invitational event.  That means painting on location with the daily paintings on display and for sale at the Gadsden Museum
Save the date:   April  9 thru April 13,

It would be fun to see you there - visitors get to watch the paintings come together, and there will be a "quick draw" event on Sunday in addition to the reception where visitors can watch even more.  I will be one of 15 experienced plein air painters who will paint at least 2 a day, and each day those 15 painters ' works will go on display at the Gadsden Museum for sale.      there is a link on the website to the Blog, and there will be updates often on the blog.  
You're invited to watch the artwork come alive daily - The Southeastern Plein Air Invitational (SPAI) lights up early April with new events and locations around Gadsden Alabama.
Over a dozen experienced plein air painters will converge to paint locations in Gadsden/Etowah County (April 9-13). The opening reception on Sunday, April 13, 2-4, will launch the exhibition of their work in the galleries of the Gadsden Museum of Art through May 2. 

New this year--
Downtown: Dusk to Dark  The latest trend inplein air painting is the nocturne—atmospheric works of the night often featuring the artificial lights of storefronts, neon, and street lights.  Gadsden’s Broad Street offers the ideal location with a vintage movie theater, period storefronts, and a bustling retail, restaurant, and bar scene.  

Classic Cars on the Coosa  Gleaming chrome, racy styling, and brilliant color combinations make classic cars an appealing and nostalgic subject forplein air painters. Gadsden’s car club members bring their best to the necklace of city parks along the Coosa River for a day that combines natural and automotive beauty.

Dueling Brushes  Prizes, a two-hour time limit, and a picturesque setting make for an exciting contest. In Gadsden’s Historic District, a Victorian house with landscaped garden, a white picket fence, gracious columned porch, and water feature offers the artists many options but they must be quick! Only two hours from start to finish with first, second, third prizes to be awarded and potential sales to me made while the paint is still wet!

The Southeastern Plein Air Invitational for 2014 offers artists, photographers, spectators, and collectors a diverse experience of on-location painting from workshop to exhibition!

  1. Robin, thank you for your comment on my creatures! I really am having a hoot with them.
    And I wish I could be at the SPAI! It sounds like there will be so much to see and do.
