Monday Morning Painters at the M.A.C. Sept.6 to Oct.3


Monday Morning Painters
Celebrate the Joy of Painting En Plein Air

Monday Morning Painters

En plein air is a French term meaning in the open air. At the time when the Impressionists, circa 1870, were first beginning to experiment with plein air effects, Winslow Homer also was discovering sunlight and atmosphere which he thought could be only found in nature.

Monday Morning Painters is a group of plein air painters that was started over a decade ago by Sonoma County artist, Patrick Fanning. The group paints mostly throughout Sonoma County. Inspiration is found in the vineyards, rolling landscapes, barns, cows, cliffs and ocean, among other scenes, which result in works that are varied and seen from each artist's unique viewpoint.
