Johnson County Center for the Arts shared the joy of plein air painting with the community throughout September and October. Executive Director Cristy Dunn and Assistant Director Temple Reece worked together to create events for artists and art enthusiasts in the most Northeastern county in Tennessee.
A month long Cultural Heritage Plein Air Event gave artists opportunity to paint at any of the counties’ thirty one historic sites and enter a judging and wet paint sale. Award winning artist Kim Abernethy presented a day long plein air workshop and artists were invited to participate in a community show “Plein Air in the Mountains” for the Center’s First Friday Event.
“Many were introduced to plein air painting and PleinAir Magazine for the first time,” said Reece. “We look forward to next year’s event and seeing all the new work and passion for painting in nature in our part of the world. Thank you, PleinAir Magazine, for being a part of our inaugural plein air event. It was amazing.”
