Plein Air Paint Out 2014

I will be participating in the Marietta/Cobb Museum's 3rd Annual Paint out,
March 29 - 30.
Come out and see what it's all about!
Artists will paint local public and private sites in beautiful Historic Marietta. From the local homes and gardens to the dynamic architecture of downtown, Historic Marietta has many picturesque scenes perfect for plein air painting. The Marietta Cobb Museum’s Third Annual Plein Air Paint Out will feature a juried exhibition and sale on display at the Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art (located at 30 Atlanta Street, a block south of Marietta Square).

Painting the town - plein air style


Nature is Blooming at the "Natural Beauty" Art Show

The art show will be March 9 – May 4.  The opening party is scheduled for March 13, 7-9pm.  The gallery location is 1710 Defoor Avenue, NW, Atlanta, GA.  The event is free to the public.

Winter has been harsh.  Fresh blooms and all the beautiful colors Spring brings will be welcomed.  So we say, “Enough with the snow.  Come on Spring!”  Our Natural Beauty show will exhibit the landscapes, flowers and all the splendid views nature gives us. 

Patrick Dennis, Maureen Engle, Dawn Kinney Martin, Greta Mattingly, Wynne Ragland are the featured artists.  Patrick’s aspects of nature are very calming and serene.  While her specialty is palette knife painting, Maureen likes to experiment with different mediums and combinations including oil, acrylic, oil pastels, watercolor and collage.  Dawn also uses oils to portray scenes of her travels en plein air.  “Realism with a twist” is what Greta calls her work.  Wynne’s photography capture objects of nature that are simple and raw.

This show will warm you like the spring sun.
