During October four co-op artists, Karen LeMonnier, Tina Corbett, Patricia Veatch and Elaine Hines had a spectacular weekend painting the historic Dudley Farm in Newberry, FL. They were joined by many other Plein Air artists from Gainesville and beyond. Most artists were part of Gainesville Fine Arts Association including GFAA's Portrait Group that meets every Tuesday and GFAA's Plein Air Group that meets every Friday.
On Saturday and Sunday many artists led by our own portrait artist, Patricia Veatch, painted local Dudley models dressed in period costumes in a tent set up for portrait painting.
In September, our artists also painted at the historic Matheson House for another Plein Air event hosted by the Gainesville Fine Arts Association.
You can also see their Plein Air work at Picture This! Frame Shop & Gallery, 3225 SW 35 Blvd, Gainesville, through Nov. 15, 2014.
Finally, the resulting work of Matheson and Dudley Farm will be presented and shown at a Plein Air Show at the Hippodrome, 25 SE 2nd Ave, in Gainesville, Nov. 12 - Nov. 23.
Thanks to our artist, Marie Brown for these great pics. Another co-op artist, Jim Whiteside and Marie visited us at Dudley and took these great photos.
