NORWICH – Plein Aire Thursdays Artist Group has expanded the number of sessions this year and added new locations to add some variety to the event.
“The increased number of sessions and the variety of locations allows the public an even greater opportunity to watch an artist at work,” says Charlene Walling, a board member of Colorscape Chenango Arts Festival, who in combination with Golden Artist Colors, organized the event as part of a fundraiser for Colorscape.
What is Plein Aire? It’s a French expression which means “in the open air,” and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors. And that’s exactly what’s taking place every Thursday (and a few Saturdays) from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm throughout the month of July.
