"Plein Air Paint Out"*
Local parks and Downtown Tecumseh
(En plein air meaning "in the open air", and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors.)*
New to this event will be a "Plein Air Paint Out". Plein Air artists will be working all day in local parks and around town to create paintings until 4:00 pm. The paintings will then be taken to the Black Door Gallery at 140 E. Chicago Blvd. to be placed on display for all to enjoy from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. An artist reception will be held at the gallery during the Art In August event to allow visitors to meet the artists. The Plein Air activities are being coordinated by Susan Amstutz of the Black Door Gallery. The gallery will display the paintings until end of September.
There will be street performers and artist demonstrations inside and outside of the stores and lots for everyone to see and enjoy.
