Kittery Art Association “Plein Air” Show Features Natural Beauty of Kittery and York

The Kittery Art Association all-member show “Plein Air,” opens on October 12, 2017. The opening reception is Sunday, October 15 from 4 – 6 p.m. Throughout the summer, KAA members meet every Thursday afternoon to paint “en plein air.” Like the Hudson River School and Impressionist painters, they work outdoors, quickly putting down their impressions of the scene in the few hours they are outside. Kittery and Kittery Point are overflowing with scenic beauty, and home owners there and in York generously allow KAA artists access to their land to paint away the afternoon. Often there is a clear favorite landscape feature that the artists choose to depict, but even then, the different choices of scale, styles, and impressions can be fascinating to observe. The Plein Air show runs from October 12 to November 5, 2017; admission to the show and the reception is free.

Kittery Art Association is located at 8 Coleman Avenue, Kittery Point, ME. The gallery features the work of Seacoast artists in monthly shows, and sponsors a popular Music Series by local performers. We welcome new members and art appreciators of all ages. We sponsor poetry readings, figure study sessions, and plein air outings, plus special interest groups. Come join us!
