All’s Quiet” by Elise Phillips

For the month of July The Trippe Gallery will be presenting a show entitled “ The Art of the Plein Air Painter”. The gallery is home to numerous plein air painters who are competing in Plein Air Easton currently or have in past years.

The paintings reflect a wide diversity of style and approach to plein air painting. on Friday and Saturday July 19 and 20, the gallery will be hosting painting demonstrations by 4 of the 2019 Plein Air Easton artists as well as a reception to meet the artists and discuss their styles.

“Plein air painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.”(Artists Network)
The exhibit features paintings by Elise Phillips, Len Mizerek, Zufar Bikbov, David Csont, Charlie Hunter, Jill Basham, Stephen Griffin, Patrick Saunders, Mark Shasha, Frank Hallinan Flood, Roberta Seger and Olena Babak. 
There will be an opening reception Friday July 5 from 5-8. In addition there will be other events at the gallery during Plein Air Easton! The Trippe Gallery is located at 23 N Harrison Street, Easton. 410-310-8727.
