Plein air Painters at Carmel City Center
August 20, 2014
You have heard of public art, but have you seen public artists in action? Local plein air painters have been visiting Carmel City Center for several weeks capturing the Center’s architectural beauty from different perspectives. “Plein air” is a French term first used by the French impressionists and has come to mean painting in the open air (en plein air). These painters desire to carry on the tradition of painting outdoors. The artists paint as quickly as possible, capturing the scene on canvas, before the light completely changes. The paintings celebrate the spontaneity and freshness that can be achieved when working directly from life and letting the scene inspire the art.
Join us on September 18th from 6-8 pm on the interior plaza of Carmel City Center at 715 Hanover Place as these local artists display their work. You will also have the opportunity to purchase these one-of-a-kind original pieces and speak to the artists about their paintings.
Participating artists include:
Carmel City Center is located on the southwest corner of Range Line Road and City Center Drive. Surface parking is available on plaza level (accessible from City Center Drive), in the underground garage (accessible from Range Line Road) and along Veterans Way located to the south of Carmel City Center.
