October 2014 Plein Air Festivities at Mountain Trails Gallery

Mountain Trails Gallery in the beautiful City of Sedona celebrates the season with new paintings by plein air master painters Joshua Been, Betty Carr, Howard Carr, Bill Cramer, Cody DeLong, Adele Earnshaw, Joe Garcia, Shanna Kunz, Marcia Molnar, EJ Paprocki, Jordyn Payne, and Dave Santillanes.  Just like the French Impressionists, these landscape artists love to paint in the outdoors (in the open air) where they capture exquisite moments in time with the changing light, atmosphere, and weather conditions.  Their vibrant colorful oils bring the world they see to life as they quickly and confidently capture the essence of their subjects rather than focusing on the details.  The viewer’s eye itself then finishes the painting.  Throughout Sedona and Red Rock County during October, a selection of these artists will be participating in workshops, painting demonstrations, and the 10th Annual Sedona Plein Air Festival, so opportunities to meet artists and watch them as they create new works of art will be abundant.  IMAGE:  EJ Paprocki, Oak Creek, oil, 20x16 inches
