INTRODUCING OUR FIRST-EVER PLEIN AIR EVENT
Set in the stunning ribbon of parks at the heart of Leamington Spa, this non-selective art event was open to all local 2D & 3D artists (not only WOS members). Whether well established or just starting out, artists were invited to engage with their surroundings and produce a creative piece in response. A number of our established WOS artists also provided mentor support to the emerging artists.
Whereas most Plein Air events tend to be restricted to paintings or drawings, we invited artists to engage in their surroundings and produce a creative piece in response in any 2D or 3D art form. In addition to paints, pastels or pencil, this included wire, felt, print, photography and even mixed media using leaves, twigs, etc found in the parks . .
Visitors were welcome to wander around and see the art in action. At the end of the day, the artwork was displayed in a pop-up exhibition in The Glasshouse, followed by a month-long exhibition in the LSA Gallery.
The exhibition of artworks produced at our Plein Air Event is on at the East lodge Gallery in Jephson Gardens, with thanks to Leamington Studio Artists and East Lodge Gallery. A great opportunity to see the amazingly diverse selection of artwork created and the chance to buy the pieces too.
The exhibition is on until 3rd October and will be open Thursday mornings, Friday afternoons, and all day on Saturday and Sunday.
Please see below the gallery of artworks produce on the day.
