Plein Air Painting Group -- Group of local artists gather the 4th Saturday of each month from now through the fall to paint on location in Sweetwater County. Everyone is welcome, visit or call the CFAC for more information. “Plein Air Painting is about leaving the four walls of your studio behind and experiencing painting and drawing in the landscape. The practice goes back for centuries but was truly made into an art form by the French Impressionists. Their desire to paint light and its changing, ephemeral qualities, coupled with the creation of transportable paint tubes and the box easel—the precursor to the plein air easels of today—allowed artists the freedom to paint “en plein air,” which is the French expression for “in the open air.” (from Artists Network)
Community Fine Arts Center Board Members Exhibit – August 2021 – Photographers, painters, glass artists and more volunteer their time to serve on the CFAC Advisory Board. The public is invited to see their creative work.
Scotch and Watercolor Society of Casper exhibiting “Variation on One Theme” in June – mid-July with an opening reception for the public on June 2nd, 5pm to 7pm. These 5 artists have been working and exhibiting together for many years. Their name came from the monthly critiques they held to talk about their artwork and share a beverage.
