Over the past two years, the Ohio Plein Air Society’s members have been painting prairies throughout the state. Plein Air painters take their name from the French words “en plein air,” meaning in fresh air, or outside. In addition to works created solely outside in all seasons, there will be paintings completed inside based on studies and work done outside. This year’s biennial exhibition is juried by Fred Fochtman, a fine art conservator and painter based in Columbus.
The exhibit in the Halley Gallery is an annual display that the senior art students create during their final year at Wittenberg. The studio art majors collectively display samples of their thesis projects as a sneak preview of their individual results.
The senior projects are self-selected and contain their best efforts in that media. Nineteen seniors are exhibiting in the show this year and they represent a broad range of media and techniques within the Art Department at Wittenberg. The entire project from each senior will be displayed in the gallery and exhibit spaces of Koch Hall on the Wittenberg campus in April, 2015.
