Paint and draw outdoors
Art on Divide Gallery
The members of Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery invite all interested residents and visitors to their community to explore outdoor painting in the gallery’s garden and in nearby Georgetown.
En plein air comes from the French language, culture and history and is defined as “…the act of painting in the open air”. Lately and now all over the world, this term is reinvented as “sketch crawl” or “urban sketching” or even “nature journaling”.
Participants and viewers of this new, free, local event will gather on May 22 at 11 a.m. in the back garden of AODC with their portable drawing or painting tools and materials and set up or walk around in the local streets and alleys to find other places with one or more subjects of interest. All are invited to gather several hours later in the garden to view and share the art that has been created during the day.
Art on the Divide Cooperative Gallery is located at 6295 Main Street in one of Georgetown’s historic buildings and the phone number is (530) 333-2787. Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the website is artonthedivide.com.
