Plein Air Festival Panel Discussion with Artists

The Plein Air Festival is celebrating its 10th year this year in Warm Springs, Virginia. The annual event highlights the traditions of outdoor painting with some of the finest painters from Virginia and across the county. Thirty nationally acclaimed artists will set up their easels, pull out their paintbrushes and document the landscape and culture of Bath County, Virginia. The theme this year is water, with a series of events throughout the week for locals and visitors to join in and watch the beauty unfold.

The panel discussion is around “How to Read a Painting.” What’s involved in understanding a painting? How do we see a painting for what it is? Artists make choices about subject matter, palette, composition, and mark-making. How do they weave these elements together to create an impact? What makes a successful painting and how do we gain confidence with our purchasing choices. Beth Bathe, Lon Brauer, Neal Hughes, Russell Jewell, DK Palecek, George Van Hook, and Steven Walker. Free and open to the public.
