What is “En Plein Air”? Translated, it means “open air” in French. French 19th-century schools of painting, such as Impressionism, were concerned with the observation of light and atmosphere effects outdoors, characterized by the representation of the luminous effects of natural light and atmosphere as contrasted with the artificial light and absence of the sense of air or atmosphere associated with paintings produced in the studio.
The Inaugural 2016 “Island Life” event and exhibition, will explore this centuries old artistic theme of capturing the essence of the natural environment by painting out doors to capture the unique qualities that make LBI one of the most beautiful areas along the New Jersey coast.
