A Painting evolution in Landscapes & Seascapes.

Opening Thursday 17th of Nov, 6pm - 8pm.

A collaboration of artists from the Auckland Plein Air Painters Group (PAPNZ.co.nz) will present work for sale at a Summer group exhibition at Takapuna Art Supplies, 124 Anzac Street, Takapuna.
The term En plein air is a French expression typically used to describe painting outside in the open, or on location.

Often seen painting out at various locations around Auckland, the Plein Air Painters’ Group continue to encourage and inspire members, and non-members to partake in the practice of 'Plein Air Painting'. The group consists of a variety of members from all walks of life, including beginners to experienced landscape painters.

Dedicated to the tradition of open-air painting, The Plain Air Painters encourage the enjoyment of painting on location, from life, capturing the images and colour of nature. With rapidly changing light and weather conditions, there is a chance to paint rapidly and dynamically, often resulting in interesting and unexpected compositions.

Paintings of favourite local scenes, including South Island scenes will be on display and for sale.

Judy Moresby - Stephen Connellan - Elaine King - Russell Kells - Bob Mitchener - David Quinlan - Malcolm MacAvoy – Jennifer Cruden.
