Plein Rein Paints Provence

Les Eucalyptus, Mary Pat Wyatt, watercolor

Ten painters open their new show “Plein Rein Paints Provence” at the JAHC Gallery at 350 Whittier St during Gallery Walk on First Friday, December 6, 2013. It runs through Dec 31.

In September artists from Juneau traveled to the south of France for a week and stayed at “Les Eucalyptus”, a farmhouse in a vineyard adjacent to the white sands of Pampelonne Beach, near St. Tropez. This show has paintings done on location in watercolor, pencil, acrylic and pastel, as well as larger works created from the sketches and photographs.

Come and share our images of quaint French villages and countryside, sunny blue skies, verdant vineyards and gentle azure seas.

Plein Rein, an intrepid group of Juneau artists who paint year-round, rain and shine, have been painting together for over 10 years.

Painters in this show:
Cristine Crooks, Dean Guaneli, Patti Harper, Sue Kraft, Pua Maunu, Michelle Morrell, Mary Anne Slemmons, Jane Stokes, Mary Pat Wyatt, Paul Voelckers

Plein Rein's 10th Art Calendar 2014 available in September

Congratulations to those who held on to their 2003 Plein Rein Calendar. It was our first and is now ready to be recycled this year! Yes, 2014 is exactly the same calendar days as 2003.

But for those who can't find that original calendar, consider buying the 10th anniversary edition. It will go on sale at the JAHC (Juneau Arts and Humanities Council) gift shop in early September.

Meanwhile, get out there and paint in this beautiful weather.

Have an artful week. See you at Foodland at 9 a.m.
