The Gallery at the Oregon Society of Artists (OSA) presents Of the Moment: Plein Air & Alla Prima Showcase Thursday, August 4-Wednesday, August 24. Plein Air painting and Alla Prima painting captures the essence of a scene, the attitude of a landscape or the character of a moment. Most often completed in a single sitting, these works feature lively and impressionistic views, bold gestures and impromptu mark-making. For the Plein Air and Alla Prima Showcase, we’re looking for works that characterize these techniques and capture the fleeting moment. Whether painting in plein air or alla prima, we want to see work that expresses the spontaneity and immediacy of documenting the ever-changing world.
Of the Moment will be juried by Barbara Jaenicke, a renowned artist, known for her light-filled landscapes and painterly, impressionist style. She has won Plein Air Magazine’s Plein Air Salon competition multiple times, been featured in and written for Pastel Journal and Artists Magazine and holds the distinction of Master Pastelist in the Pastel Society of America.
Awards will be presented on opening night, August 4, 6-8 pm. The Gallery, at 2185 SW Park Pl., is open Monday-Friday 10 am-4 pm and Saturday 1-4 pm. More at osartists.org.
