Albany Plein Air Oil Painters

Past Event

6 - 17 December 2023 | Vancouver Arts Centre                                                                                                

The Albany Plein Air Oil Painters invite you to come along and view some of our work from throughout 2023 which have been painted at various locations around the Albany area.

This is our inaugural exhibition and showcases a variety of scenes many of which you will no doubt recognise. Some of the work has been done completely on location while some has been finished off back in the studio.

Painting in the open air (plein air) is recorded as far back as the Renaissance, but was then generally done in preparation for studio painting. In the nineteenth century artists such as John Constable, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and John Singer Sargent painted en plein air as they considered this to be the best way to capture the light and true beauty of nature.

We are a friendly group of local artists who enjoy the challenges of painting with oil paint in an outdoor environment. Anyone interested in plein air oil painting, whether a new beginner or experienced artist is most welcome to join us at our fortnightly sessions.

We hope you come along and enjoy viewing our plein air work from 2023

Open daily 10am - 4pm
