Tryon artist Keith Spencer is one of 12 Plein Air artists invited by the Greenville County Museum of Art to participate in a weekend long event called "Get Out and Stay Out: A Plein Air project at the GCMA." It will be a celebration of landscape painting to close out the exhibition called "Masterpieces of Landscape" from the MFA Boston, which is currently on display at the Greenville County Museum of Art. The artists will set up around 8:30 am on Saturday, September 14th, at Falls Park in Greenville, SC and paint throughout the day until 4:00 pm. Acclaimed Asheville landscape artist Julyan Davis will be on site interacting with the artists throughout the park.
On Sunday at 2:00 pm there will be a panel discussion with Michael Brodeur, Julyan Davis and Alan Coleman. They will be making the connection between the historical examples of landscapes included in the Boston exhibition and the contemporary examples created on Saturday for the "Get Out and Stay Out" project. This will take place in Gallery 5, and the work created on Saturday will also be hanging in Level One Gallery as a part of this program.
On Sunday evening (6-8pm) there will be a members' reception at the museum showcasing the paintings created Saturday. All participating artists will be invited to attend and their work may be offered for sale to interested collectors.
