Our Northport - Plein Air

The summer solstice weekend of June 20th - 23nd saw the gathering of many of the regions most accomplished plein air artists in Northport Village. "En plein air", is a French term meaning to paint outdoors in natural light.
 
Friday and Saturday were paint days. Passers-by could stop and chat with the artists or simply just watch in wonder and admiration as beautiful art was created before their eyes. On Sunday, an exhibit and silent auction was held for the still "wet" paintings at LaMantia Gallery.

The event was sponsored by The Northport Arts Coalition in cooperation with LaMantia Gallery and artist Anthony Davis of The Long Island Plein Air Painters Society.
