Ohio Plein Air Society Exhibition Opening Reception and Holiday Art Fair and SaleArt Fair and Sale: 9am-5pm; Reception: 5:30-7:30, Saturday, Dec 6, 2014
The Ohio Plein Air Society painters selected to focus on the “prairies” of Ohio over the past year and a half. Many think of prairies as being limited to the Plains states, however much of Ohio was once covered by sweeping expanses of tall grasses, few trees, and low, rolling hills. In the exhibition, you will see paintings of swaths of land from along the interstate highways, the gentle hills of Champaign County, and the grassy fields that now grow soy beans and corn to feed the world – these are all prairies of Ohio.
A special one-day art fair and sale on Saturday, Dec 6 from 9am-5pm
will feature original work by Ohio Plein Air Society artists available for sale, along with notecards, prints, and a limited number of a one-of-a-kind cut glass holiday ornaments etched with the winning design from one of the Plein Air Society artists. Free and open to the public.
The reception, from 5:30-7:30 will feature jazz standards and holiday selections by Studio 3, a Columbus-based jazz quartet, and is free to SMoA and OPAS members; $5 to non-members.
