Three Galleries on Broad Street in Charleston Offer Works by Members of the Plein Air Painters of the Southeast

Three Galleries on Broad Street in Charleston, SC, COCO VIVO Art for Living, Edward Dare Gallery, and Galerie on Broad, will present works by members of Plein Air Painters of the Southeast’s (PAP-SE), including nationally and internationally known artists who will gather to paint en masse from Nov. 2-7, 2013 in Charleston. The three galleries will present wet paint shows and sales of works created in Charleston, from Nov. 8-16, 2013. A reception will be held on Nov. 8, from 6-9pm. This is an extraordinary opportunity to meet and talk to 30 notable, highly collected artists. Visitors will learn why they prefer to paint outside from life in a spontaneous reaction to nature and the environment.

The plein air movement, which has accelerated over the last decade, brings artists from all over the country to one location where they paint together. The camaraderie and formation of lifelong friendships among creative people are fostered through this national plein air movement.

Professional plein air painters are bound by a common passion to promote the traditional methods of painting in plein air, to hone their painting skills through the demanding rigors of painting outdoors, to enjoy the camaraderie and shared knowledge of fellow plein air painters, and to raise awareness and appreciation of this traditional method of painting among art collectors and connoisseurs.

For further information check our SC Commercial Gallery listings, call COCO VIVO Art for Living at 843/720-4027; Edward Dare Gallery at 843/853-5002; or Galerie on Broad at 843/410-6332.
