Plein Air

Plein Air Events...

Our "Brushes with Nature" program was created to foster fellowship and the opportunity to meet other NEWS members -- while painting outdoors at some of New England's most beautiful locations.

Plein Air events are just for fun. There will not be any instruction to sharpen your skills. However, as a member, you will have the added opportunity to exhibit artwork done over the spring, summer, and fall at one of the events and submit your artwork in the annual Brushes with Nature exhibition at our Gallery in Plymouth MA in November and December.

All artwork created at a Plein Air event will be acceptable for entry into our Brushes with Nature exhibition. This exhibition is open exclusively to members that participate in the Brushes with Nature program. All submitted artwork must have been completed during one of the scheduled Plein Air events -- or started in the field and completed in the studio. CLICK HERE to view the prospectus of NEWS Gallery shows.

The scheduled dates, locations, and local host's name and e-mail address are shown below.
Individual venues will be posted here, as well as any updates to this schedule. Parking and facilities are available at each of these locations.
Artists' friends are also welcome to paint with members.
