Visit the Stewart Gallery now through May 28th for their latest exhibit: “En Plein Air.”
Plein Air is the French for open air. The term is used to describe the practice of artists painting before a landscape or other chosen subject out of doors, rather than in a studio or workshop. Before the end of the 18th century outdoor work was usually restricted to drawings and watercolours, but in the 19th century the increasing popularity of sketching landscapes in oil developed gradually into the practice of painting finished pictures in front of the motif.
Enjoy their new summer hours: Monday-Saturday, 11am to 5pm and Sunday, Noon to 4pm
The Stewart Gallery is located at 6655 Main Street.
